The 1:18 collector's scale is more popular than ever. It is therefore possible that some showcases will be quite tight in 2021. We expect a flood of new model cars from DNA Collectibles. At least by Saab standards. Below is that
Where have they gone, the cars beyond the gray and black hues? La bella rossa - a laser red Saab Cabriolet, one of these stands out from the gray herd. A little courage to color - yes, yes. She conjures
Oh, that wedge! I see him in the rearview mirror, he's following me. Flat, exotic and exciting. If I didn't know better, I would take it for an Italian make. A Lancia, maybe a Maserati or a Fiat. Some big four-door hatchback
About 10 years ago, production of the last Saab model came to a standstill. The prices for used cars have developed excitingly since then. The first slump was followed by a rapid recovery. Since then, prices have been remarkably stable. Vehicles are now trickling too
Time for a new column. Saab on Sunday will accompany us into the new week with some small talk. The largest Saab dealer in the world was ANA in Trollhättan until 2011. The company was part of a larger chain operating in

Saab brought a large portion of racing feeling to the dealers' showrooms in 1995. Good for the brand's sporty image, also good for the mood of the customers. Saab on the road in the 24 hour race at the Nürburgring, with Volker Stryzek at the wheel.
In the spring of 1974, work began on the 9000 in Trollhättan. A completely new car and the way to a higher class. Behind the project was nothing less than the future positioning of the brand. Exciting, groundbreaking, and by no means easy.

Today is a sad date. The last day that Great Britain is a member of the European Union. Tomorrow, on the first day of 2021, everything will be different. And I, for sure, will miss the island and my British friends. The
Nightmares reflect unprocessed events and can come back again and again. Saab affine people know the Christmas nightmare. It haunted Trollhättan in 2009 and 2011. First, when GM wanted to liquidate the brand. Then two years later, when Saab turned himself towards Valhalla
On December 19, it was 9 years ago that the factory gates in the Stallbacka closed. A long time from an automotive point of view. How has the brand held up in your home country since then? A look at the current numbers is worrying
Change of time after around 10 years! Saab passion will continue to be read almost every day. But from now on, and that will be the difference, mainly in subscription. And because a change also offers opportunities, I came up with something.
The turn of the year is actually completely overrated. The date changes, the state traditionally increases the tax burden, otherwise everything stays as it was. This year everything will be completely different. At least as far as the Saabblog project is concerned. It stands on one
As usual, Christmas is approaching with giant strides, and yet everything is different this year. The festival will be quieter and more lonely for some. Maybe a little more worried, with a view to the coming weeks. That makes me think

The new Saab 9-5 NG sports suit that DNA Collectibles will be presenting to us shortly before the end of the year is simply beautiful. After the first edition in Glacier Silver sold out quickly, the Swiss have now opted for Fjord Blue as the body color.
There are model cars that one waits more or less eagerly for. The Saab 99 Turbo that DNA Collectibles launched this year did not belong to this category. My expectations were not particularly high, the Saab 9000 model
Life can be sneaky. Collectors have been waiting for a 1:18 miniature of the Saab 9-3 Viggen Coupe for years. Then DNA Collectibles takes care of the problem. And at the same time plunges the collectors into new difficulties. Because the Swiss bring

It's about time I got the Saab 9-5 Aero out of the hangar. After two long days, the time has finally come. After work, I swap the 9000 for the 9-5. A generation change, the timing for it is conceivable
2020 is drawing to a close, and our not entirely ordinary Saab 9-5 Aero project is also heading for the finale. 2 or 3 more posts, then the story is told. After that it will be quite a long time
There is this point where one can only wait. The Saab is on the van in a distant country. It then rolls off. In the direction of Germany, one hopes. And wishes that the 9-5 would be well received. What

There is always something to do. Classics age with dignity, at best. Some parts become unsightly over the years and through repeated use. Just like the buttons on the belt buckles, which not only wear out, but also

There are vehicles that are searched for through advertisements. At Porsche it's rare 911 derivatives, at Saab it's the 9-3X. Fascinatingly inconspicuous, the estate has changed from Trollhättan to the blue Mauritius of the Saab world. An end to the

In August last year, the photo of a NEVS Mule attracted attention. A mysterious vehicle, well camouflaged under an old Saab 9-3 body. What was hidden under the camouflage has not yet been clarified. The secrecy in Trollhättan works

One day, when I almost had a major engine failure myself, and the hoses to my own engine were being repaired in the operating room, I literally took heart, now or never. Immediately after my release, I searched the car sales platforms.
For those of you who haven't read my previous posts, “What Happened So Far”. So my very first car was a used Saab 99 GL and consequently my second was a brand new Saab 900 GL. Of course, once Saab, always Saab. Almost.
