Volvo bidding for (parts of) Saab

SaabsUnited quotes an unnamed source who states that Volvo is interested in purchasing tooling from the Saab bankruptcy estate. The source reiterated that Volvo isn't interested in any production at the Trollhättan factory, adding that the purchased parts would likely travel to China for use by Volvo owner Geely.

While we're putting this story in the rumormill for now, purchasing expensive tooling at a fire-sale discount sounds like a potentially brilliant idea for Geely and Volvo. Volvo could soon begin building vehicles in China to expand its presence in the emerging market, and it always helps to get such a project off the ground with some high-quality parts that obviously haven't been used much lately.
