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.
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.
