Saab Facet. The result of a great passion.

When does Saab start passion? With Peter Haubold the time is clear. In the year 1990, to his 18. Birthday and on time for the driver's license, he got a 79er Saab 900 Turbo in green metallic gift. Over the years, he now earned his own money, more 900er came in white, silver and eggplant. It was later followed by the inevitable Saab 900 16S as a cabriolet in black, the cult Swede par excellence. Fantastic!

Saab 9000 2.3 turbo, Saab 900 II coupe and Saab 9-3 II sedan followed ... the automotive life can be nice when it's full of Saabs. Eventually, a hobby turns more than just liking into a brand, and you decide to let more Saab into your life. One or the other will then wake up in the morning, realizing that he has 5 Swedish cars in the garage, or that his model car collection urgently needs expansion space.

Peter of course also has the obligatory model car collection, but he has decided that it may be a dose more Saab. Rare Saab models or vehicles that had never made it to the series will be rebuilt with him on the scale 1: 43. Previously realized models include Saab-Lancia 600, Saab Quantum IV and V, Saab Reynard 850, Saab Skip Barber and now the latest creation of the Saab Facett from 1964.

His projects are made of French resin, but also white metal parts are used. The Facett finished model comes in a showcase, it is very detailed. All projects are strictly limited and with certificate, the collector status is guaranteed.

Two years ago we had the unique story of Facett and its rebirth on the blog portrayed, the emergence of their model in 1: 43 can be viewed on the Nordland Scale Facebook page. The collector's items can be purchased via Peter Haubold, mail: or the Saab archive of Wolfgang Schmel via e-mail:

The prices for the strictly limited production are as follows:
Finished model in showcase, white: 219,00 € (15 pieces only)

Kit, body painted, red: 99,00 € (25 pieces only)

And what about Peter Haubold and his Saab passion? A new homepage for Nordland Scale is in the making and will be online next year. Another Saab project is in planning. This time, however, in the scale 1: 1. A Saab 9-5 II is to move into his garage. If that's not Saab Spirit ...

4 thoughts too "Saab Facet. The result of a great passion."

  • Wow, great and individual. As well as the price

  • The silhouette of the SAAB facet reminds me of certain BRISTOL models - very individual and sporty appearance!

  • Hats off to the Creator. The model looks incredibly good!
    With such a strictly limited edition (all in all just 80 Expl.) The prices are cheap.

    It's just a pity that SAAB enthusiasm has always expressed itself in all imaginable ways. Just not to order a new car from SAAB every three years. That could not be the same ...

    The passion for collecting of used cars and models or buyers, who cherish their "new cars" for half an eternity like their eyeballs, are now SAAB typical ...

    And as much as that may also speak for the cars, so much does it run counter to the economic prospects for success of a car brand.

  • Why should I buy a new car every three years? In the loss of value, I can also burn the same money. If my own vehicle serves its purpose, I drive on. I'm not here to feed the company. Should it go financially bad times do not say: "The next big inspection goes on the house".
