General Motors has had "close dialogue and close contact" with several parties interested in buying Saab, according to a company spokesman.
GM's proposed sale of Saab to Koenigsegg collapsed last week and Beijing Automotive (BAIC) and Wyoming-based merchant bank Merbanco are believed to be among the parties interested.
"We can confirm that we have heard from different investors," a GM spokesman told Automotive News, without revealing any of the interested parties. "We have a close dialogue and close contact with several who have expressed interest in buying Saab Automobile.
"It is not so surprising, given that there were 27 parties who were interested [when Saab was first up for sale] and 10 who came and looked the company over in April and May."
Saab faces closure if a deal cannot be struck to sell it to another party. When GM's sale of its Saturn brand to Penske fell through, the brand was wound up and Saab could face a similar fete.
BAIC is China's tenth largest manufacturer and was due to take a stake in Saab as part of the Koenigsegg deal, but a GM-BAIC deal is likely to come attached with intellectual property rights issues.
