SAAB Talk: New additions to the Saab community

Saab is currently not in the business news. A state that will change soon, but which gives us time to write about cars, the brand and the fans. On Friday we had a visitor from Sweden. Lars, blogger from “Phoenix - A Future for SaabVisited us on his way to a sports event in Bavaria.

His blog is currently in “stand-by mode” because he too is waiting for the end of the economic crime in Sweden. The time was too short, because he had to leave us again in the evening. Lars who owns a Saab 99 and a Saab 9-3 brought us a few Saab parts from Sweden for our Saab 9000 and Saab 9-5. More on that in a later article.

In the Saab Community there are two entrances to report. In addition to its Saab 9-3 Cabriolet, Alexandros has also acquired a Saab 9-5 sports trolley from the Chrombrillen fraction. He was looking for a long time and has finally found what he is looking for. The new Swede is from the model year 2008, has few kilometers and a lot of additional equipment. The chrome glasses is quite rare and will eventually be a sought-after classic. Until then, there is still a lot of time. Have fun with the red beauty, see you at the latest in Spa!

A second access comes from Switzerland. For Patrick it is the second Saab after a Saab 9-3 sedan. The Saab 9-3 sports suit from the Swiss Christmas Edition is from 2011. More precisely from the month of March and thus unintentionally a very exclusive production year. The Swedish station wagon can be considered a new car with just 3000 kilometers on the clock and it looks sensational with the Saab turbine rims, inspired by the Aero X study.

As it should be, the diesel is “stuck” on 200 hp. More draft, more driving pleasure, less consumption. A beautiful Saab that will be a lot of fun in the next few years. Our congratulations to Switzerland!

The Saab drivers are above average loyal. Even though times are tough and our love for the cult brand is repeatedly tested, many fans remain loyal to the brand. The myth of Saab fascinates and who drove once Saab, which is forever connected with the brand.

Proof of loyalty that went through the international press is the purchase of the last Saab 9-3 of the past era by Saab fans. Saabsunited's campaign led to success earlier than expected. Tim Rokka and Till Drescher were able to announce the successful conclusion on Friday. There is no better proof of loyalty from the community.

The crew of Saabsunited will provide the Saab 9-3 Griffin in the Saab Museum in Trollhättan for the time being 5 years. One more reason to visit the Saab collection.

    First of all congratulations, the rims fit really well. Then the question: does anyone have experience whether the consumption even with the 160 PS original version with low CO2 transmission in practice (with appropriate driving style) still further sinks. According to Hirsch data sheet, the CO2 Emmision for the SC hardly increases measurably from 122 to 124g / km.

  • Very beautiful lady “Hot Red”, one rarely sees. 🙂 Congratulations.

    Hey Patrick, the turbines are awesome!

    Greetings Frank

  • ... thanks for the introduction, dear Tom!

    Today we extensively tested “HotRed”, as the community on Facebook christened our newcomer (unfortunately on wet roads).

    A beautiful, comfortable, good-natured travel combo! Our Harry loved it too!
