I used the afternoon to stop by the famous Swedish furniture store. For a good friend there was Swedish jam and for me a big box of nerve food. Also from a well-known brand from Sweden. You need that when writing a Saab blog. Let's talk about the plans of NEVS, the stickers of the Saab Bekenneraktion and about the Saab meeting in the Bavarian Forest.
Rebirth of the Saab 9-3
In Sweden, the press is now writing about the possible comeback of the Saab 9-3. She does this surprisingly positively. Dagens Industrie, not particularly known as Saab-friendly, calls the 9-3 the car with the nine lives, which is now approaching the tenth life. We shall see whether the plan is realistic or not. A good friend who is very close made me aware that everything is still pure speculation.
First and foremost, it depends on the suppliers. In the month of November, we will see if the supply chain is still standing, Fredrik Sidahl of the national supplier association said in a brief interview with the TTELA. The idea of NEVS is, in many ways, not outlandish. But before we get more involved with this issue we should see how seriously the realization is being done by the new owner.
Saab Confessional Action
The autumn / winter check and the brake campaign are currently running in Germany and Austria. The Saab partners also have the iconic "Saab more than a car ..." stickers. The first edition sold out very quickly and demand is still high. These adhesives are not available to buy, they are only available from participating Saab partners. The good news came from Eschborn that a second edition was printed. In the meantime, the stickers from the Saab confession campaign are on their way to the service partners.
Saab meeting Bavarian Forest
The activities of the Saab community are also leaving their mark on the media. The autumn meeting, organized by Matthias, was a great success and a wonderful end to the season. The local press has this strong sign of life of the cult brand from Trollhättan berichtet, I think the Saab Community wants a reissue in 2013!
That was the Saab News for today. Tomorrow we will continue with the Saab 9000 and the sequel to our Action winter quarters.
