Saab has always been a problem child, first to GM and now to Spyker. GM reeling under an economic crisis sold off Saab to Sypker which is now finding it difficult to get funding for production and new models. Spyker has decided to let go off 29% of Saab to Hawtai, a car manufacturer in China and Russian investor Vladimir Antonov and this seems to have secured funding for the near and middle term for Saab. It is believed that Spyker will now call back its workers to Saab factories. They had been away from the factories due to lack of funding.
