SAAB Tag: Blogger on the go and nothing really new…

It is decidedly too warm and no Saab Turbo weather. It has 32 degrees in the Rhine-Main area, and in Bamberg, where I was with my Saab Turbo X today, it's not cooler either. The Saab got new ignition coils, and by accident was also the Turbo X by Adrian at Saab center Bamberg in the workshop. His Saab gets, among other things, new ignition coils.

Adrian consistently thought through the optical Turbo X idea "Black is back" right through to the end. His "Darth Vader Turbo X" is now kept almost completely dark, also in the interior. The small chrome rings on the air vents have disappeared, and the silver insert on the automatic lever is also tinted. Looks cool and there are pictures of Adrian's Turbo X at Adrian, it was great to meet you!

Saab Zentrum Bamberg is a family business and a traditional Saab partner. The Saab Spirit lives and customer loyalty is more personal than anywhere else. For lunch, the barbecue was fueled for employees and family and also the blogger did not go hungry back north. Thanks to Bamberg for so much hospitality!

Our Turbo X is now running the way it should, and the return flight, partially over the highway, was a typical Saab treat. Sovereign overtaking on the road, a Saab domain, is great fun! Now we are ready for the International Saab Meeting in Spa!

Let's remember the rim action of the Saab Parts AB? The campaign was such a great success that many types of rims are no longer available, or only at the regular price. The campaign stocks have melted like the snow in summer, with the coveted Alu 88 rim the complete campaign goods are sold. If you are still looking for rims, you should talk to your Saab partner, because only they can check what is available or not. There has been no price list that has been asked repeatedly in the last few days - the pricing is up to the dealers. And the blogger also has no insight into what is and is not in stock in Nyköping.

Still the inevitable view to Sweden. Who made bets on NEVS closing their deal on time? I did not bet on it, and so it is. The local newspaper, TTELA, reports that the deal is being delayed and the takeover of Saab's assets is due sometime in August, possibly even in September. So far, Swedish friends have not spent a penny on NEVS either way, and September has long been considered the month of the decision. So nothing happened, and it certainly was not a surprise.

  • Hey Tom, the joy was entirely on my side ... 😀

  • GM has been out long since and now has enough to do with burying OPEL. SAAB gets a complete restart when the lawyers have negotiated well. If not, then the Phoenix is ​​in India or in China from the band and not in Sweden. It's that easy.

  • Which former leadership?
    Those who sit across the pond and put out the directive SAAB can not help it?
    Then the administrators (liquidators) would have done a successful job.
    And that's exactly what I would suspect.
    The rest of the big car world has no interest in SAAB playing Phoenix.

    My 3 ct about it

    • It has nothing to do with it. Saab, not GM.

      • re-born from jets?
        But maybe you should simply put the speculator down for a while as long as many things do not match and enjoy what you drive. And then be surprised when there is actually something completely new saabiges?

  • Hi Tom,

    On another blog (SAAB and MG / Rover blog) a “know-it-all” writes that no other investor will be heard - even if it shouldn't work with NEVS.

    This unsettles something - although in the end it would make no sense at all. I am assuming that there is a back door for the so far not very successful administrators - through which u. U. also entry for other interested parties or investors is possible. That's how I understood your vague hints.

    Please give us a short interim info on this topic.

    • Dear Joachim. I know the statement there and, like so many other things, it is simply copied from the local newspaper. I'll try to formulate it this way and very carefully, because everyone is reading along. The work of the administrators is carried out in close cooperation and agreement with former Saab executives. There is no criticism from there, on the contrary. In the past few days I have heard only positive things and approval repeatedly. Things are further than it seems. These are not newspaper reports, but firsthand information. There is also no back door, either way it is too late for new investors, because the matter is largely over and irreversible. Do not tie the Saab future to NEVS, the interesting things happen elsewhere. I hope you understand ... 😉
