Because the Saab 9-5 and 9-4X were based on GM's technology, GM had to shut down the sale of the strange Swedish marque to Youngman, as GM is already in bed with a different Chinese manufacturer. We've already reported on the crushing of the last 100 Saabs and the sale of the Saab museum, but Youngman has now offered to buy Saab without purchasing the rights to the brand spanking new 9-5 and 9-4X. What would exists is the 9-3 which could potentially go into production in as few as 15 weeks. 

Judging by the look of the grainy photo above, we really hope Youngman finally succeeds in purchasing Saab. That car look like it could be pretty cool.
