The new Saab 9-5 NG sports suit that DNA Collectibles will be presenting to us shortly before the end of the year is simply beautiful. After the first edition in Glacier Silver sold out quickly, the Swiss have now opted for Fjord Blue as the body color.
A really good choice. Paired with the bright interior, probably the combination that I would have ordered in Trollhättan. The Saab 9-5 NG sports suit was something like a glimmer of hope on the horizon for the brand. Had he made it to production, the chances of survival would have looked a little better.
The bearer of hope
Because the station wagon was assumed to have a high share in the product mix, as was the case with its predecessor. It didn't turn out the way we know. The pre-production vehicles that survived became cult. The prices are sometimes absurdly high when a vehicle is offered. It is in the nature of things that prices will always remain high. However, it remains to be seen whether they will continue to rise.

It is interesting to note that Saab was not that enthusiastic about their own product in 2011. A lot was put into development by the GM Group and Opel, and some detailed solutions caused concern lines. The poor use of space for a vehicle of this size, especially in the luggage compartment, caused a shake of the head.
A homage to the Saab 9-5 NG sports suit
The concept came from Opel and had to be accepted in Sweden. There they classified the 9-5 NG sports suit with a pinch of pragmatism as a temporary solution on the way to independence. That he could become a cult was just as little on the radar as the possible failure of Saab.
All of this no longer counts today, things turned out differently than expected in 2011. A 1:18 scale homage to the 9-5 and a nice addition to the model car collection is the new sports suit in Fjord Blue. It can now be purchased from DNA Collectibles at the early bird rate ordered will. The miniature will be delivered in the 3rd quarter of 2021.
