The Saab fans are facing a difficult decision today. You can vote in which design you want to reissue our License plate holder to wish. Because the popular version “Made in Trollhättan by Trolls” is sold out. Before we order the new production next Monday, we can agree.
The aircraft logo has been with us for many years. A stylized Saab 18 that could be seen on the speedometer display and other locations in classic brand vehicles. Her big comeback would have come with the 2012 model year. A small aircraft symbol could have been found in the line speedometer of the Saab 9-5. The Saab 18!
Saab 18 - a piece of Swedish history
The Saab 18 is a twin-engine bomber that was introduced in 1942. It is a development of the then young Swedish aviation industry - with American support. From 18, the Saab 1944 replaced the Junkers Ju 86, which Saab produced in small numbers under German license.

At almost 600 kilometers per hour, project number 18 was one of the fastest planes of its time. A total of 242 copies (or 245, depending on the source) were built in different variants and placed in the service of the Swedish national defense. From the late 50s, the Saab 18 was replaced by the Saab 32 (Lansen) replaced. Only a Saab 18 has survived to this day. It has been restored and can be used in Flyvape Museum be visited. When the museum reopens after Corona.
For us, the crucial question arises. A new edition, held in the style of the aviation tradition, with the historical plane? Or would you prefer a slightly newer design with a small griffin that is now history. Saab Automobile banned the bird more and more from 2010, in a short time it would also have been a thing of the past.
