Today, at least one Chinese auto manufacturer is one step closer to strengthening the quality and integrity of their brand without wasting millions on, you know, actually building a better product. While we all expected Volvo to be the first brand to be raped and pillaged of its technology, in a surprising twist of fate it seems as though the honor of one’s hard-earned reputation comprised will be awarded to Volvo’s fellow Swedish automaker, Saab.

According to reports, Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation (BAIC), minority shareholder in Saab’s future parent company, Koenigsegg, has placed a bid to purchase the production and design rights to the Saab 9-5. If the deal is approved, it is highly likely production of the 9-5 will be relocated to China where it will be rebuilt using high-quality plastic and/or duct tape and rebadged as an extremely unsafe, sub-par BAIC vehicle.
