Saab confident on being bought

Saab can still find a buyer for the whole firm, a spokesman for the loss-making carmaker said yesterday, as reports suggested parent company GM would sell off parts of the company to China’s BAIC. Saab, one of Sweden's best known brands, has been hoping an 11th-hour savior would turn up after parent GM said in late November it would wind down the firm if a buyer did not appear before the end of this month. Dutch sports car maker Spyker Cars NV is also still in talks about buying the brand.
