    I think it’s time for another email to SaabUSA, if they still exist. The recent movement of Cadillac General Manager Jim Taylor to become CEO of the brand formerly known as Hummer was reported with Steve Shannon’s future looking like a mere footnote (ouch!). The backstory: In April 2008...

    Just a heads up, thanks to Gripen… Steve Shannon will be a Saab of Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles today talking about the state of Saab (I wonder if he checked here before preparing the speech?). It’s an invitational event, though I’m sure if you live nearby and you wanted to pop in they would...

    As part of the New England Auto Show publicity, Steve Shannon’s probably spoken to a myriad of journos. One of them was Wards Autos and there’s some interesting dot points to pull from the article. It’s subscription only, but a copy was forwarded to me earlier today. - Shannon is...

    Here’s the fourth part of my interview with Steve Shannon. In this section we deal with Hirsch, Saab’s official aftermarket tuner, and the lack of it’s availability in the US market. This is one area that I feel pretty strongly about and let’s just say that Steve and I are going to have to...

    Here’s part 2 of the interview I conducted with Steve Shannon last week. I’ve broken the interview into bit-size pieces rather than one huge file, which Google was having trouble serving. Part 1 of the interview is here. In this instalment Steve talks about the year so far for Saab in the...

    There were some problems with the full interview being served all at once, so I’ve done what I should have done right from the beginning - broken this interview up into bite-size chunks. This is the first installation, running a shade over 10 minutes. In this episode, we get an insight into...

    <blockquote>I don’t know if, on a 35,000 unit run rate where we are now, what kind of a business opportunity there is unless SaabUSA were to significantly fund and help grow that business…and with everything else on our plate right now, that’s just not a high priority. </blockquote> The quote...
