Pilots wanted 2018 list of participants online!

If you wonder how much fun Saab is in the community, here is his answer. Pilots wanted 2018, the third edition of the international Saab 9-5 NG meeting, has more participants than ever before. And there are real rarities here!

We have more than 60 vehicles, and in addition to four Saab 9-5 pre-series sports suits, the unique Saab 9-5x “by Oskar Persson” is coming to Kiel. Of course, there was never a 9-5x in the short production time of the last big Saab. The idea for this variant came up much later, when the factory gates were already closed. But he's done so well that he could have run off the production line at Saab. The story of the Saab 9-5x you can read on the blog.

As special guests we can welcome the 9-4x this year. The Saab SUV is even rarer than the 9-5. For the second day of the meeting there will be seven 9-4x. Maybe it is the largest collection of these vehicles in Germany in one place?

More updates on Pilots wanted 2018 will be available on the blog in the next few weeks. Markus and Katrin Lafrentz are still working on the route guidance for Saturday, but the restaurant for the Saab Dinner on Friday is already set. We are guests at Gosch in Kiel, a restaurant overlooking the fjord and the marinas. In addition to local delicacies and fish dishes, there will also be a choice for other culinary preferences. More information will be published before the event.

The list of participants can be found here. The team of Saab Kiel and the blog crew continue to work on the preparation. As with recent events, Saab Rallye Plates and other niceties are top of the list again this year. Even more information and design designs of the Plates follow. We are already looking forward to the meeting in Kiel!

  • Hi Tom,
    I think it's a shame that such an event is only available for the 9-5 NG ……. especially in a car dealership where the Saab Spirit is so present.

    Saabige greetings,

      So …

      ... I also don't have an NG and I also look with a certain envy of participants in the event and NG owners ...

      But what would I have if the event did not exist?

      Yes, yes, I understand. It is probably meant exactly the other way around. But it's not like that other SAAB drivers are not open to any events. Let the exclusive club of the owners of the last Saab be allowed to meet exclusively once a year ...

      Events are not an easy thing. You need a good location, a team with a lot of spirit and a budget. With the 9-5 NG we have that in Kiel. Eventually, and these have been mind games for some time, there will also be a classic event every year in the future. That for info ... 😉

        That's good news. I wish the participants of this year's 9-5II / 9-4X event a safe and pleasant arrival and departure. Departure, combined with wonderful experiences, conversations and impressions during the event. And as a 9-5I driver I'm already looking forward to 2019 ... 😉
