    Born from Jets was Jay Spenchian’s baby, his stamp on Saab’s presence in the United States. It arrived with a blaze of glory and I think it really did have the impact that Saab desired on it’s inception. After the near silence and mixed messages that marked the latter years of Debra...

    I’d like to pick up on a couple of things mentioned in comments regarding the Born From Jets advertising campaign and expand on them a little. Why is this important? The US is the single largest market for Saab (single country - I know Europe as a whole rivals it) so this campaign is pretty...
