It hadn't worked out with the IAA 2011. And the convoy around the exhibition center could not be realized either. It was not until the 2011 dealer tour that two 9-5 NG pre-series sports suits came to Germany.
That was typical Saab at the time. A small brand, without budget, in the fight for survival. With commitment and creativity, things were realized that were not really possible. That was a long time ago and has become part of the Saab saga that we are still writing about. But the story is not over yet. The last Saabs are the dream of many fans, and the existing sports combinations have become an asset.
The Saab 9-5 NG SC at the Essen Motor Show 2017
The fact that an extremely rare 9-5 sports car is now presented at a major German car show fits the brand. She lives on, and it's the fans, clubs, dealers, and even the bloggers who keep her alive. The Essen Motor Show 2017 is, according to own data, the most visited annual automobile fair in the country. It provides the framework for the big show around noble vehicles.
Something very special this year is the Saab booth of the 1. German Saab clubs. It is a kind of late 9-5 NG sports car Germany premiere in front of a large audience. More than ever, the Saab booth is worth a visit this year. Not just for fans who prefer older vehicles. But also for those who want to experience a piece of Saab story live. From Saturday in Essen is open to the public. The Saab 9-5 NG SC can be found in hall 8.1, booth 111.
