SAAB auction. The really (all) last Saab for sale.

It should really be the very last Saab auction in Sweden. Since today 78 Saab are for sale in Tjörn. These include some Saab 9-4x, which were used as test vehicles of the Saab Automobile AB and which sometimes have low mileage.

Anyone looking through the list will discover that not all vehicles from the last auction were picked up by their buyers. There is, once again, one of three existing Saab 9-3 in Saabsunited's favorite color "Skyblue" and the last Saab 9-3x built. New Saab 9-5 II sports suits are also being called.

A special rarity and a unique piece is the Saab 9-5 sports sedan with a 2.9 liter 245 PS power diesel under the hood. An outlook on what could have been, but not become. It is now, I think, time to conclude with the past. It is sad that neither 9-4x nor sportswear made it into our garages. Well, a few will have a 9-5 II sports suit in their collection and a successful approval procedure behind them. My current car would be a Saab 9-4x today if the story of Saab had been different.

But all this is now a long time ago, and it makes little sense to mourn the past. Saab is sold, and Sweden is working on the future. Maybe a little too slow for our taste. But something is happening, and with luck the current Swedes in front of our house have not been the last cars from Trollhättan.

    Hello!
    Does anyone of you know how complicated a registration process in Austria is, since they are prototypes?
    Thanks for any kind of information.

    Interestingly, there are now a few EU 9-4X model year 2012 up for auction - even the first EU 9-4x is among them.

    Is it known from which manufacturer the TID6 engine is?

      Probably VM Motori, but it is not certain. Is said to have been "planned" for the 2014 model year.

        I just looked at their homepage the performance data of the current stage of development. 550 Nm make it a bit difficult to conclude with the past

    Hello Tom
    Yesterday I was allowed to pick up my new SAAB 9-5 II with first-time release 2013. This is certainly a compromise
    after there was no chance for the sport combination. But it is a SAAB.

      It's a great compromise, right? Good time!

    Hello Tom, when I see the pictures it brings tears to my eyes! https://www.kvdauctions.com/en/auction/saab/saab-9-4x-28t-v6-aero-autxwdhellader300-hk-2011_543961.html
    just as I ordered it. Signed contract and in hand, until then the big end came and I no longer 9-4x for my wife. At least I could secure my 9-5 Turbo6 XWD and am happy with it.
    Is there any idea how to get parts for the 9-4x? What's the Lafrantz doing with the specimens he sold? What to do with a 9-5 II Sportcombi if you have a rear-end damage?
    Because only to put in the garage is not such a beautiful car not made. Such a Saab needs a run!

      Dear cmd, I think because of the spare parts you should ask our specialists in Kiel directly.
