1997 was 50. Anniversary with the Saab 9000 Anniversary the first anniversary model. One feature of today's model was the historic Saab aircraft logo embossed into the seat backrests. Then five years later, with a Saab 9-3, it was time again. Diemal with a turbo lettering in the leather. 2007, to the 60. Anniversary, came the last special model of Sweden for the time being.
The Saab 9-5 Anniversary. Like all predecessors, he was equipped with special leather, this time with embossed Saab lettering. Two Anniversary models, 1997 and 2007 are parked on the premises. An 9-3 Anniversary is in the neighboring town with friend Marco.
Exactly today it would be that time again. Would be - because today Saab celebrates anniversary and almost no one has noticed. At least the WDR has noted the date and brings a small one Message, On the 10. June 1947 presented the car maker from Trollhättan the pre-production model of the Saab 92 the press. A second vehicle was ready for test drives. The first production model of Sweden was born.
Today, 65 years later, it looks bleak for the small brand. The Anniversary model number four does not exist. Perhaps the 2017 tradition will continue and the cult brand will celebrate 70 years of automotive engineering. Maybe never.
No matter what. It's time for a thank you to Trollhättan. Thanks to Saab for 65 years of innovative automotive engineering. Thank you for many years turbo performance, driving pleasure and unforgettable moments. Thanks for security and individuality. The story can not be over yet. 65 years are too few. It has to go on. We want more!
Happy Birthday Saab ...
