Update: 14: 12
He would have changed the perception of Saab in the public and he would have opened up new groups of buyers. The Saab 9-4x could have done a lot of moving and those who were allowed to see and drive the 9-4x were full of praise. As we know, it has not come to an official launch for the European markets, and only small numbers have been built for the US.
But even with the US setup, the 9-4x drives sporty and has a huge amount of fun potential. Mark had the pleasure of driving the Saab and has one Fahrbericht delivered, and also from me there is a detailed Test. Anyone who was allowed to move the Saab 9-4x did not want to give it back ... a fact that speaks for the car. If it had also been built for Europe, there would be one in our carport today ... if we had got one, because the planned quantities for Germany were small.
Far up in the north, at Saab Service Kiel - Autohaus Lafrentz GmbH, this beautiful Saab 9-4x Aero has stood since yesterday. The Saab enthusiasts from Kiel imported the sporty all-wheel drive from the USA and are currently retrofitting it for German roads. The 9-4x in the color “Crystal Red”, a color that I have now seen for the first time, looks more than good and is particularly exclusive. Only two copies left the factory in Mexico in this color scheme.
“Crystal Red” reminds me of the traditional, sporty red tones of the design icon Saab 900 Turbo 16S, and with that the 9-4x Aero would be in good company.
The Saab from the USA is still available. I still say, because there are already interested parties that are marked. So he could be sold very fast and* possibly Saab Service Kiel would bring more copies to Germany.
Which, it is admitted, will not be easy. Even in the United States, 9-4x are now hard to come by.
PS: Our family growth has nothing to do with Saab. That too is there
* Update: As Markus Lafrentz has just told us, the 9-4x is no longer available. The Lafrentz family keeps the Saab 9-4x and complements their own Saab collection. A decision I can understand. I wouldn't have given this car away either. For those interested in other 9-4x from the USA, Kiel has an open ear. Contact is welcome.
