For about three years, there are no new cars from Saab, let's see from the faltering short-term production at NEVS. Nevertheless, the brand does not disappear from the minds of the people.
The British magazine Auto Express has readers after the “Most Wanted Cars 2014" asked. Suggestions for one came out Minithat looks like a Mini again and not a driving caricature of the brand name, a Ford Capri successor Alfa Montreal, and also one Saab 900.
Apparently in Sweden can happen, what wants. The brand staggers from tragedy to tragedy, over Trollhättan hang thick, black clouds. Nevertheless, the classic Saab hatchback is present on the wish list and in the hearts of the buyers. Saab is more and more a phenomenon, a self-runner. It must be frustrating for the auto industry. As you fill every niche you think you can see, the offer continues to fan out as ever. And what happens? The stubborn Britons, and not just those, want a Saab 900 back in the showrooms.
Do we remember the British brand Rover? It disappeared in 2005 and has been dead since then. Also on the island, it doesn't play a role in “Most Wanted Cars 2014”. In China, what is left haunts the area as “Roewe”. By the way, the trademark rights to Rover have been with Tata for years. Nevertheless, there is no talk of a comeback.
For the brand from Trollhättan, however, Britain has always been and still is a strong asset. Saab was and is considered as an alternative to the German manufacturers. An active club scene holds the flag up, Saab is alive.
The design shown is a mix of Saab 9-5 NG style elements, Castriota ideas and Turbo X rims. Not bad, but I found the 2014 design from the Saab design studios in Trollhättan to be more Saabian. More pictures and details are available Auto Express.
