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.
If you look through the list, you will discover that not all cars from the last auction were picked up by their buyers. There are, once again, one of three existing Saab 9-3 in the Saabsunited favorite color "Skyblue" and the last built Saab 9-3x. Also new Saab 9-5 II Sportkombis come to the call.
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.
