Saab enthusiasts gathered in Detroit yesterday to urge General Motors to sell the brand and secure its future.

Unofficial Saab website organised the protest, and around 50 people turned up at the General Motors headquarters.

The protest lasted for around two hours and was also attended by a variety of national media.

General Motors has set a January 7 deadline for bids for Saab, according to Automotive News. Dutch sports car manufacturer Spyker is the only bidder currently interested in taking control of the company.
