The Chicago Tribune reports that SAAB has filed for bankruptcy. As previously reported on this Blog, General Motors sold its stake in SAAB to Spyker, a manufacturer of high-end sports cars, for $74 million, in 2010. (GM had paid $725 million to buy a partial and then complete interest in SAAB and then ran the company into the ground. What a terrific return in investment!) Unfortunately, SAAB was not able to recover from GM's "stewardship" of its classic brand. Moreover, unlike GM, which received an ill-advised bailout, SAAB will apparently receive no such taxpayer handout. In fact, as reported on this Blog at the time, Sweden rejected calls for such a bailout the last time SAAB was in trouble.
