    Washington, D.C. - Like trying to fix your hair while standing in the middle of a tornado, Saab finds itself in the midst of a corporate life-and-death whirlwind around which it is trying to get back to the business of making and selling vehicles.

    As I write this, that business is well and truly up in the air, as a key investment of 150 million Euros by little-known Chinese firm Hawtai Motors has just been scrapped, a week after the lifeline was announced. The search for an injection of funds continues.

    And while its main assembly line in Sweden has idled for five weeks now due to parts shortages caused by unpaid suppliers, negotiations are still underway between potential investors as well as the European Investment Bank and the Swedish Government to help patch things up.

    Amazingly, this hasn't greatly affected the roll-out of its new 9-4X crossover. Produced alongside the Cadillac SRX at GM's plant in Mexico, assembly of U.S. vehicles started mid-May, with models destined for international markets and Canada set for August or September.
