Saab production at its base in Trollhattan restarted today.

Production was halted for seven weeks while Spyker's takeover of the company from GM was completed.

“Today’s resumption of production is a milestone in the history of our company” said Saab boss Jan Ake Jonsson. “We are up and running as an independent manufacturer."

To mark the occasion Jonsson, Spyker Cars CEO Victor Muller and Trollhattan plant director Gunnar Brunius took up positions on the line alongside assembly workers as the first batch of cars was built.

The first car off the line was a Saab 9-5, which will be used as a test car prior to production ramping up later this year.

All the very best of luck to

All the very best of luck to Saab and hope they will continue to prosper (or try to start their prosperity back up) after so long of halting their production line. It is rare to see Saab cars around these days, so hopefully this comeback will make a positive change to their business and the automotive industry as a whole. It is not easy to kickstart back your business after shutting it down even if it is only for a few days. Nonetheless, with support from fellow ventures and customers, a comeback might be slow but not impossible.
