There are turnarounds of an average degree of difficulty, and then there are turnarounds that might take a couple of years off of your life.
Bringing Saab, the Swedish automaker, back from near-death, is probably in the latter category.
Just a quick recap, for those unfamiliar with the Saab story:
Saab originally made airplanes (and a subsidiary spun off long ago still does), developed a prototype car in 1949, started selling cars in earnest in the Fifties, entered the U.S. market, and developed what could probably be accurately called a small but fanatical following in America. Saabs were quirky, front-wheel drive when almost nothing else was, extremely safe, very economical, and, last, but hardly least, had design that was truly innovative and different-looking.
