I chose not to go nuts on video footage in Detroit, opting for recorded interviews that I’ll be presenting here in the near future in text form.
Ryan, at Saabhistory, did go nuts with video and there’s a whole bunch of recorded interviews with key Saab personnel for you to peruse.
I’ve just been watching the interview with Eric Geers, where I noted that the Saab Aero-X is soon to feature in a movie after talks with producers etc., were held at least partly in Detroit.
The Saab Aero-X put a whole new spotlight on Saab back in 2006. If the film it’s going to appear in is a major new release, and a successful one, then it could well kick off a whole new round of momentum. Assuming the film comes along in 18 months or so then it’s also possible that this momentum would coincide with some new vehicles from Saab, too.
The only thing left is to speculate as to what sort of film it might be.
Transformers II – I’ve heard previously that it was sought, but declined, for the first Transformers film.
A Bond film – it’s about time James Bond got back into a Saab.
Any other suggestions?
