There is good news! The legendary Hirsch radiator grille for the Saab 9-3 series from model year 2008 is being produced again. It is not a replica, but a reissue of the original tools.
The car dealership Lafrentz in Kiel has acquired the rights from Hirsch Performance and has produced a new edition in the usual good Swiss quality. The tools for the Hirsch Grill weigh around 5 tons, the production is booked and will start soon.
This finally closes a gap. The demand is there, many 9-3 are still on the streets. Because the 9-3 proves to be extremely durable. Whoever was in the mood for more individualization, has so far found hardly any possibilities. That is changing. Some patience is still needed, the delivery should start from the KW 51 / 2017.
Already now a pre-order can be placed. In Germany, distribution takes place via the Car dealership Lafrentz, or over Stephan Individual, The quota could be quickly sold out, because the demand is already huge in the pre-order phase. In addition, the Saab base in Kiel is re-producing deer feathers for the Saab 9-5 NG V6. Interested parties can contact the dealership, the quantity is limited.
Even more reproduction planned for the Saab 9-3
There have been no new cars in over 6 years, but the brand still seems to have many lives. It holds up well and there are a surprising number of activities. But Saab has always been something very special ...
The re-production of the Hirsch accessory line is only the one thing. Especially for the Saab 9-3, more is coming up and gaps will be closed in the offer. The activities, and that's the really amazing thing, are not coming from Sweden this time. Germany is now in charge of Saab, although it was never one of the big markets.
What do we get to see? Another product idea will come from Eschborn in October, and next year, more accessories will come from another German source. These are, I think, very good news for all of us.
