As far as I am concerned, the more brands the better.
I mean, looks at these guys above. This is still a good looking bunch. (Except that illustration of the Phoenix platform based future 9-3. Bottom pic)
Now it looks like Indian company Mahindra is about to acquire the brand. And its current parent company NEVS. (Who was not able to produce more than a few of the old 9-3 sedans...)
Mahindra was already trying to get Saab a couple of years ago. Before that, they also went for Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover.
The question is, what are they going to build?
The gorgeous 9-5 and the 9-4X were GM based. And GM didn't allow the new owners to produce them. The "next" weird looking 9-3 looks like the only thing on the drawing board so far. (Sedan and convertible)
And there is also the (huge) problem of trusting a brand that almost died so many times within the last few years...
What do you think?
