Poor Spyker! The boutique automaker has been struggling financially ever since it took in Saab, which was a short-lived and disastrous business venture for the Dutch company. It has had to cease production on its insanely cool an expensive cars, and just over a week ago it suffered another scare thanks to its own national government, which listed the company’s assets for sale.
The auction for Spyker’s assets was ceased quickly, and Spyker CEO Victor Muller has since worked hard to clear up misconceptions about what is going on with the company. He stated that the whole action was the product of a misunderstanding over a business tax “disagreement.” Apparently, Spyker paid what it owed to the government, which drug its feet processing the funds, which triggered the auction automatically. Once the automaker’s money was proven to be good, the link to the auction was taken down, but not before some media outlets scooped the story in a frenzy as they speculated the company was going under, again.
Muller had even more good news. Not only is Spyker not going out of business, the production schedule for the all-new B6 Venator is on schedule! While not many details are available right now, such an announcement is a positive sign for the company as some have speculated it might not even be able to deliver the new model. The Spyker B6 Venator is incredibly important since it will be the most affordable car made by the company yet and is expected to draw in a considerable increase of customers and support, at least in comparison to past models. Just like past Spykers, the B6 Venator incorporates a number of fun details that are a direct tribute to past airplanes.
