Saab 9-5 NG Sedan & Combi

Today it's about cars, about Saab on German television, not what's happening on other blogs. The Saab community has another entry to report: a Saab 9-5 NG in Fjord Blue has landed in Germany. There is an exciting story behind the vehicle that can only be experienced with the brand.

Why is? We have a Saab 9-5 NG with very few kilometers from the previous ownership of Saab Automobile AB. The sedan is one of those vehicles parked by the bankruptcy administrators in some mysterious halls. A few weeks ago it was offered on a Swedish sales portal.

As often had Markus Lafrentz the right feeling, bought the 9-5 and put it on its way to Germany. Even before the Saab rolled onto the ferry and left Sweden, it was - unseen - sold to two Saab fans from southern Hesse.

So far so good. And not spectacular. What Lafrentz had bought there in Sweden and immediately resold, was at that time still aware of none of those involved. This only became apparent on closer inspection, when the Swede rolled into the yard in Kiel. A piece of Saab history, with an incredible story in the background.

Had Markus already guessed the complete story back then, he probably would never have resold the 9-5. But too late, the sedan is now in the best hands in the Saab community; The complete, unique story about the vehicle will be published soon on the blog.

Another single piece is now approved and on our roads. Saab collector Josef Zabel has freed the world's only Saab 9-5 NG sports suit Aero6 XWD from the showroom of an Opel dealer and is now out and about in the wild. The Saab can finally do what it was built for ... it's called species-appropriate attitude 🙂

If you like Saab even more and can't get enough of the brand, you can soon enjoy Saab TV on VOX again. The station was a guest at Josef! There will soon be a post about the sports suit. We will inform you as soon as the date for the broadcast is set.

  • This really nice color combination (fjord blue and beige leather) can be seen more often in the US used car portals. It's a shame that there is hardly any offer here in Germany ... ;-(

  • Driving he is really great.
    Unfortunately I have to buy a 9-5 NG

  • That is absolutely not true ... The story is more exciting. The last research details are in progress, the story is coming soon 🙂

  • Edit: Well, JAJ can't get there because he doesn't have tinted windows ...

  • I'll speculate: this is Jan-Åke Jonsson's former company car. He had ordered taste and his car in this beautiful blue back then ... So, now I've taken the tension off you 😉

  • How mean! I'm bursting with tension about the blue 9-5 ...

    Note: This is a sentence that can probably only be written on a Saab 🙂

  • Wonderful SAAB's! 🙂 The owners always enjoy it and have an accident-free flight over the slopes…. 😉
    Should the 9-5 Limo go to the Swedish royal house? The exterior color would be great! Looking forward to the dissolution of the story!
