The formulation should be chosen wisely. The last Saab? Or the last Saab new car? The correct description will probably be the last Saab new car produced by NEVS. Firstly, the company has lost its trademark rights in the meantime, secondly it is unlikely that there will ever be another reissue of the 9-3 sedan. Because their roots date back to the year 2002.
However, and you should know that, there are still some genuine Saab cars in Swedish warehouses, produced by Saab Automobile AB, which will eventually appear surprisingly on the market.
The offered Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo 4 comes from the short-term production of the model year 2014. According to NEVS, the car was “forgotten” in the factory and rediscovered at the Saab Festival 2019. Whether the saga is correct or not, it definitely reads nicely. At the festival, the company announced that it would auction the Saab and donate the proceeds to a good cause. That sounded yesterday Instagram then something different. Part of the proceeds will now be made available to research on sustainable mobility.
One thing is certain, the last Saab produced is a case for the fans. With only 66 kilometers on the speedometer, it is a new car and you can be curious what it will redeem. Because the story with the “last Saab” has been played through for years now, with completed 9-3 convertibles and limousines, pre-series models and lost vehicles. At some point it could be enough.
The last one produced Saab
What should one know as an interested party? The Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo 4 is most likely the best evolutionary stage of the series, which rolled out of the Saab factory. The chassis was retuned, there was fine-tuning in detail. The workmanship is excellent, as much has been assembled by hand. With the well-known Saab 9 5 NG 2 liter direct injection turbo and 220 PS, the sedan is well motorized, and with good relations with the former Saab factory stag Hirsch are even 260 PS in it.
But the car also has its peculiarities. The seats come, despite the Saab logo, from the Volvo shelf and could disappoint die-hard fans. Owners who have intensively moved the 2014 Saab in everyday life are not completely satisfied with their quality. In addition, maintenance requires an authorized partner of Orio AB; a simple readout of the fault memory via Tech2 is not available for the vehicle for licensing reasons.
