New Release. Saab 9 4x 2011 1: 18

What do you have at 24? October 2011 made? To forget? I still remember. I was in Hamburg, I am a Saab 9-4x for the first time gefahren, The impression was lasting. So good that I wanted one. With luck, I would have got one, almost. If Saab had lasted a little longer.

DNA Collectibles has set itself the 9-4x

The Saab 9-4x remained rare, production only ran for a short time. Then it was over, and today the SUV is an extremely stable item for collectors. The 9-4x would rarely have stayed one way or another in Europe. Even if everything had turned out differently in Trollhättan. It was primarily a vehicle for the North American and Chinese markets. The majority of all models built in Mexico would have gone there. Europe would only have received a very small dose.

A mere 300 pieces per year would have landed on the German market. About one per Saab partner, more would not have been possible. There is also no need for any discussion of why there would have been no diesel or hybrid. The well-known 2.8 liter V6 with Holden roots would have provided the engine with and without charging. Only its successor, based on the Phoenix platform, would have switched back to the well-known Saab line. 1.6 liter, 4 cylinder, turbo and on request also a hybrid.

DNA Collectibles has made the 9-4x. It will not be launched on the market until March 2020, the pictures show the first prototype. It looks very good, smaller details are still being worked on. The color of the miniature is “crystal red”. DNA, consciously or not, chose a very exclusive color. There are two vehicles in Aero Trim worldwide that have this paint finish. 2013 was a very nice meeting both vehicles in Kiel. No coincidence, because Markus Lafrentz cares for the existing vehicles with his dealership worldwide and is the first one Contactwhen it comes to the supply of spare parts or the service.

The early bird price for the Saab 9-4x in the scale 1: 18 amounts to 133,87 €, the orderers thus save 10%. DNA Collectibles shipped now from its warehouse within the EU, customs duties as in the first models are therefore no longer.

  • I think I should get one, then I can admire the 9-4X every day, if only in the showcase and not in the garage.

  • Lustig

    I fell for a brief moment of irritation on the cover picture. I thought the real thing stands on rubble. Probably speaks for the model ...

    Otherwise, I agree with previous speakers. 300 cars for the whole of Europe by Anno? This is ridiculous and makes service, spare parts supply and storage financially unattractive.

    Much worse, however, is that VM-Saab downplayed themselves and their own potential when they had new cars at the start and should have convinced creditors and potential investors ...

    Although I'm not a fan of the V6, but compared to what other manufacturers have also sold in Europe in recent years on SUVs with success and in large numbers, even this engine goes through as pure sanity.

    That went really stupid and I especially miss the beautiful SC today ...

  • Unfortunately, there have been many misconceptions and decisions made by Saab and Saab. I'd like to know what would have happened if the team in Trollcity could just have been done ?!
    In addition to the interesting model but I find the information about the car dealership Lafrenzt really amazing. That the radiance of the Kiel company goes so far is already very considerable. Hats off, for this achievement !!

  • Quote: .... Europe would have received only a very small dose. Just 300 pieces per year would have landed on the German market. So about one per Saab partner, more would not have been possible.

    This assessment of the “need” is also a blatant misinterpretation at SAAB.
    But in the end they couldn't help it either. If SEK is missing everywhere ..., the work is no longer fun and meaningful.
    The model looks good, as far as I can tell.
    Personally, I “shy away” from the price. 🙁 Regardless of whether it is a small edition or not. It doesn't matter whether the small cars increase in collector's value or not.

    The article resonates with melancholy ... what could have been ... history.
    Out of the mouse.

  • Uii uii uii ... .. I would be very weak! 😉
    ... just the price and the color ... 😉

    Hmmm ... I have to drink an espresso over it quickly ... 😉
