In the next few days, the blogger will switch to summer vacation and thus the blog to stand-by mode. But first, let's see what the press has to say about Saab. The 8/2013 issue of Autobild Klassik has it all! There are a few people in the editorial team who have the courage to leave gaps and love the small brands. Saab, the cult brand from Sweden, appears several times in the current issue. The first reference to the Swedish brand can be found on page 44. It's about the classics from the 70s, and the Saab 99 Turbo gets a few sentences and a recommendation as a buying tip for little money. With a “turbo afterburner”, according to the editorial team.
It continues on page 92. In the report on fuel consumption, the Autobild Klassik does away with prejudices. A Saab 900 S Cabriolet from 1991 is being tested with other old and young timers. The Saab does well in the test cycle. No turbo is running, turbo is drinking! It can also be done economically! In the top 30 list, the Saab is 8th and ahead of a Golf 1.1.
On page 99 it is about the Choice for the classic of the year. The Saab 900 Cabriolet is included in the “Convertibles and Roadsters” category. The vote will last until September 15th. No question about it, the 900 Cabriolet is the Saab icon at all, and all fans should cast their vote! Wouldn't it be nice if our brand got a great placement!
Even more Saab? Yes, it continues. Pretty much on the last pages of the magazine, the editors write about the cars of the aircraft manufacturers. Logical that Saab should not be missing there. Because at what brand are automotive and aircraft production so closely linked? The Autobild Classic is the Saab 92 therefore worth a double page. Not bad, the Saab presence in the current issue. It would be nice if the motor press would report in the future on a similar scale about the comeback of the brand. When it finally comes!
