There are model cars that are really cool! At the same time, however, they also make you think. What would have been if…? Yes, if NEVS had launched the Saab Turbo prototype, for example? For a while it wasn't as absurd as it seems today. Would I drive one of these? Probably yes and my current company car would be from Trollhättan.
It remained with a single vehicle that is parked today in the Saab Museum in Trollhättan. More would have been possible if the Stallbacka had had the money that is available today. But there is no point in mourning these things because the world keeps turning and lost opportunities never come back. The turbo prototype would have been an affordable, individual car. So very different from the Aero X.
It would have played in a completely different league - a sports car like the one Saab has never seen before. Series production was not considered from the start. It was about anticipating design features from what was being planned. That was successful, attentive observers register the design language of the last models at the rear, on the exterior mirrors, headlights, front and other details. A 9-5 NG, a 9-4x and even a 9-3 Griffin - always a bit of Aero X design.
DNA Collectibles has both miniatures, limited to 320 pieces, brought 2018 on the market. The Aero X in the scale 1: 18, the turbo prototype in 1: 43. Lovingly designed with a look for the fine details; I have the 2 in November 2018 on the blog vorgestellt, I think both model cars should not be missing in any Saab collection. Because they stand, each for themselves, for an important section of the brand history.
Speculation with the Saab Aero X
They are sold out at the manufacturer and we were able to secure the very last copies for our readers. A small number, 5 Aero X and 2 Saab Turbo prototypes are still available, then it's really over. We offer the miniatures to readers at the list price at the time, which originally included customs and taxes.
This, even though the Aero X has just become a speculative object. In a popular portal, miniatures, new and original packaging, between 229,50 and 249,00 € offered. A nice little speculation, but we do not want to join.
