The Unfinished Deal

Svante Andersson, the CEO of Stenhaga Invest, sheds light on the delay, citing “certain circumstances” that have prolonged the finalization of the Saab factory acquisition. This unforeseen extension has led to a sense of limbo, leaving both Saab enthusiasts and industry observers eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the NEVS Emily GT saga.

Ongoing Negotiations

Despite the extended timeline, hope is far from lost. According to Nina Selander, CEO of NEVS, negotiations are “absolutely not closed.” – as reported by Swedish local magazine Ttela. While the process may not be as advanced as anticipated back in late August, when preparations for production were expected to kick off in September, discussions are still in progress.

Nina Selander mentions a secretive buyer who visited NEVS headquarters two months ago, engaging in talks with NEVS representatives, city officials, and Stenhaga Invest. The involvement of multiple stakeholders suggests a complex negotiation process, possibly contributing to the elongated timeline.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.

  • I cannot see what the prospective buyer is getting as the trademark SAAB is off limits.
    Also a probability bev’s will not be the only ttransportation future.
    My money in on hydrogen powered transportation.

  • If it does not have the SAAB LOGO and was not engineered and built by SAAB technicians, it is not a SAAB. Period. This from a current owner of four SAAB cars. 9000CSE, 9-3 Aero, 9-5 Aero sedan, and 9-5 Aero wagon. Best cars ever built.

    • None of your Saabs are true Saabs; just GM badged engineered products. A true enthusiast appreciates all of them.
