Saab Negotiating For Use Of The MINI Countryman Platform
MotoringFile reports that a deal between Saab and BMW will be announced September 29 that permits Saab to buy BMW engines. The article speculates that the engine version to be purchased is the yet to be released 4 cylinder turbo as BMW has said in the past it wouldnot sell its 6 cylinder engines to other mainstream manufacturers. Spyker (Saab’s parent company) continues to negotiate terms with BMW for use of the MINI Countryman platform which would become the basis of the planned 2014 Saab 9-2.
