A famous motto of the Saab corporation “Born from jets” reflects somehow the history of the first Saab automobile making. It was made by sixteen aircraft design engineers and so was founded on the aircraft design. The meaning of a slogan is that the quality and safety of Saab vehicles may be compared to the quality and safety of aircrafts. At the present time Saab vehicles production is a prerogative of GM, but Saab airplane division is still controlled by the Swedish Saab company. So let us take a digression into the history of Saab company. The make Saab appeared in 1937 with the projection of aeroplanes for the Swedish Air Force. From this point on it has concentrated on construction of military aeroplanes, including fighter airplanes for NATO. Owing to their high quality Saab aircrafts were recognized throughout the world. Since 1949 Saab specialists have been involved in the production of well-engineered cars. The distinctive feature of Saab cars consists in the special aerodynamic design that assists in fuel economy. This peculiar feature is observed in all Saab models. Safety is one of basic priorities of Saab automobiles. The experts of this corporation use the latest technological achievements to make their automobiles safe and contemporary. Such innovations include: self-repairing bumpers, self-cleaning headlamps, turbo-charged engines, air filters and so on. In 1980s due to the global economy growth and the spread of multinational corporations the Saab corporation confronted difficulties in keeping its position on the market. This resulted in the separation of the Saab automobile division and its selling to a certain number of investors. The principal investor has become General Motors corporation that has 50 per cents of the business. The range of Saab models has lately been supplemented with the first sport utility vehicle. All the models are regularly updated in accordance with the demands of the market. But still, there are argues about increasing influence of GM company. Discussions are led concerning the ability of Saab to keep its uniqueness and to compete with such celebrated European brands as Mercedes, Volvo and BMW. Despite all these facts the amateurs of Saab automobiles hope that its aeroplane heritage will help them to create unique and reliable cars.
