    GM sells Saab to Koenigsegg Automotive

    My take is it is a good thing for the people of Sweden to get one of their own back. But we shall see. Can't believe GM is only getting $150M... and not even upfront?!?

    I met Mr. Bård Eker last year.

    49% share holder of Koenigsegg. So it's a Swedish-Norwegian company, with american backing (finance).

    Unfortunately, Koenigsegg have never shown a profit either except perhaps in 2008 (not official yet) but hey, it could be a lot worse for SAAB.

    I hope the future brings good things!
