We’ve kept across the sad demise of SAAB and it seems now that the last drinks have been called for the Swedish innovator.
Also in Trollhattan is the SAAB museum containing 120 SAAB’s outlining the company since it’s inception. The museum, owned by SAAB and therefore an asset to be sold off to satisfy the creditors, is valued by the people and is something they wanted saved. Since, and perhaps even worse, the collection might have been broken up to maximise profit, the people of Trollhattan, SAAB AB and the Wallenberg Foundations have reportedly paid £2.6 million (3.7 million AUD) for the museum and contents.
The museum includes the first ever SAAB, the UR-SAAB.
