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 scarce, the production ran only briefly. Then it was over, and today the SUV is an extremely value-stable object for collectors. Rarely, the 9-4x in Europe would remain one way or the other. Even if everything had changed in Trollhättan. First and foremost, it was a vehicle for the markets of North America and China. The majority of all models built in Mexico would have gone there. 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. There is no need to discuss why there was no diesel or hybrid. The well-known 2.8 liter V6 with Holden roots would have provided the engine with and without charge. Only his successor, based on the Phoenix platform, would have swung back onto the well-known Saab line. 1.6 liter, 4 cylinder, turbo and on request also hybrid.
DNA Collectibles has set itself the 9-4x. It will be released in March 2020, the pictures show the first prototype. It looks very good, smaller details are still being processed. The color of the miniature is "Crystal-Red". DNA has, consciously or not, chosen a very exclusive shade. Worldwide, there are two vehicles in Aero Trim, which carry this paint. 2013 had 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.
