It's Christmas time, and one or two readers may still be looking for a suitable present. How about a Saab new car? Distributed across Europe are still 3 for sale, probably the last of its kind. If the bonus payment at the end of the year is generous, you can start the spontaneous shopping tour across Europe.
Saab 9-3 TTID SC
Italy is worth a visit at any time of the year. Zanetti Omero & C. SNC in Pordenone is offering a new 9-3 TTID station wagon for sale. A 2011 model year, but not a Griffin. Probably it was produced in Trollhättan in January or February 2011, making it one of the last Saabs.
The Euro 5 Diesel has run 90 kilometers, it has a nice Vector equipment with partial leather. In the footwell, the film is still available, with the ex works all new cars were protected. More new car feeling does not work, the Saab is a time capsule that has been parked in the showroom for almost 8 years.
When it was built, diesel engines were considered environmentally friendly in Sweden and the Saab was classified as “Miljöbil”. Today diesels are considered the worst sinners, and propulsion is a penalty rather than a bonus. Perhaps it is because, and because of the price of 31.000,00 €, that the 9-3 has not yet been sold.
Saab 9-3 1.8t BioPower Sedan
Northern Germany in winter? That can be cloudy! Originally from Spain came the 9-3 sedan that was made in Kiel Markus Lafrentz for sale. 12 kilometers, partial leather, and as untouched as the 9-3 in Italy. With an exciting history in the background, which I can only tell in the beginning.
The sedan was delivered from Saab to Spain. It went, presumably as a sponsor's gift, to a player from a Spanish football team. The 9-3 was put away in an underground garage along with other high-profile vehicles - and forgotten. Years later, when the collection was dissolved, the Saab was found, which was then sold directly to Kiel.
Nearly 30.000,00 € are to be transferred for the 9-3. Not a little, because compact sedans have a hard time in an SUV dominated world, even if they have a nice color combination. If it is still a small engine and no Aero, ignites even with true fans of buying reflexes only modest. That's a pity, maybe the history helps the interest a little bit.
Saab 9 4x 3.0
From Italy, via Spain and northern Germany to the Netherlands. At Venza Exklusiv Cars there is still a last 9-4x for sale. The Saab SUV was never officially offered in Europe, production ended shortly after the start in Mexico. But even without a market launch, the 9-4x is at the top of the list of everlasting dream cars, and only a few can fulfill this dream.
The 9-4x, model year 2012, at Venza is fully equipped and with around 60.000,00 € the most expensive gift on our Christmas list. On the credit side you can book the great and rare premium equipment, against the 9-4x may speak the 3.0 liter naturally aspirated engine. Fans usually want a turbo under the hood, so maybe the SUV is still waiting for a buyer.
Another Saab dream car has meanwhile found its new owner. The transatlanticist, an exclusive one-off, travels from Hesse to North Rhine-Westphalia in the next few days. As a Saab Christmas gift XXL so to speak, it could not be better. He does not end up with the well-known Saab collector in this state, but with a reader who has been driving Saab for ages and who will take care of him and, above all, enjoy it. The blog crew wishes you a good trip and always a lot of Saab pleasure!
