SAAB SALE SKIDS

KOENIGSEGG, the supercar maker that is in talks to buy Swedish brand Saab from General Motors (GM) was last night locked in talks with the Swedish government over additional funds it needs to take over Saab. Earlier yesterday, GM said it had struck a firm agreement to sell Saab, but Koenigsegg said it only had 70 per cent of the funds needed and was looking to the Swedish state to help plug the gap.
