They are, you have to say, historical pictures. Four Saab 9-5 II Sportkombis gathered in Kiel. When we will see so many station wagons together in one place, is uncertain. It is only clear that there is a missed future opportunity of the brand from Sweden. The sports combinations are sought after and sought after, and the lucky few who own one have a very individual vehicle.
The Saab base in Kiel is now a non-official competence center for the never-in-series vehicles. With a lot of enthusiasm and good relations to Sweden we provide service for the 9-5 II series. For the owners of the station wagons it is good to know that things are very professional. Saab Service Kiel has parts for the pre-series vehicles in stock, and a Swedish-German network helps with technical issues.
The pictures show the different equipment levels and the different versions of the tailgate, which would have been different for Europe and the US market. Of course, the Saab station wagon meeting had a reason. It was about the approval for road traffic. On Monday afternoon, the dealership Lafrentz was able to report success. Mission accomplished and three of the 4 vehicles are now back home. One in Switzerland, one in the Baltic and one in Sweden. And in the north, a sports suit is permanently on the move.
When can we expect a Saab 9-5 II sports combination meeting again? The next date is the Saab Festival in Trollhättan, and three or four station wagons have already been confirmed. Let's see ... maybe there will be more ...
