I guess what you buy depends on your wants and needs. My take on it is that there are plenty of good used Saabs available even if no new ones are built for a while or (worst case) ever. I plan to continue driving Saab cars regardless of what ultimately happens with the company.
For many years I've engaged in what the Brits refer to as "bangernomics" - buying an older car for cheap that is basically sound but needs some TLC. This works for me since I do most of my own automotive work and have multiple vehicles in the event my main ride is down for repairs. My current daily driver is a '97 9000 CSE purchased through a Saabnet ad last year for the princely sum of $1500. (No car payments for me, thank you!)
But that approach is obviously not going to work for everyone...
