Say good-bye to Saab

    2009 Saab 9-3

It's time to say "Vi ses"--that's Swedish for "see you"--to Saab. After General Motors twice tried to sell the brand, first to Koenigsegg and later to Spyker, the company announced today that it will begin a three-month "wind-down" of the brand.

GM didn't offer many details on what scuttled the sale, other than to say that warranties will be honored and spare parts will be available.

The Swedish carmaker was known for its quirky cars, and many Saab purists complained when GM took control of the brand two decades ago. Now, GM is trying to pare down to four "core" brands--Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC--and there is no room at the inn for Saab. GM had hoped to find a buyer, but time has run out for Saab.

"Vi ses," indeed.
