Do you know that too? That car you never got? Because the time was against it, you were too young or your account balance too low? These youthful deficits can be addressed in two ways. You could go to a psychologist or just buy the car. Now. Both ways are costly.
I bought my first Saab in 1992. A 900 S Coupe that just fit into the budget. Actually, to stick with the truth, the 9000 would have been the more suitable car for me. My annual mileage was high, the 9000 the more modern design. More comfortable, quieter, with more luxury. But also sinfully expensive.
So it stayed with the longing look at the new CS, which was then in the dealer's yard. Nevertheless, I was happy with the 900 and stayed loyal to the series for a long time, followed by two more 900 S. However, as a young used car, which shockingly had made a model change in Sweden.
What remains of unfulfilled wishes to this day is a 9000 CS in Odoardo gray. The paint job was from 1986 to 98. It was named after the Italian Saab importer at the time, who is said to have given the impetus for this color. In his eyes, the previously used colors of the Swedes were not suitable for true elegance. Which he wasn't entirely wrong about.
For me, the color Odoardo Gray after midnight blue has stood for the most beautiful color a Saab could have. When a very similar color appeared a few years ago at the Volkswagen Group, I caught myself for a split second at the thought of buying such a car.
Of course I didn't do that, there must be deliberately unfulfilled wishes in life. A very cool 1992 Saab 9000 CSE is now available in Switzerland. He stands by Garage Jost for sale in Pieterlen. Jost supports the blog, which, however, does not lead to paid content in this specific case. This contribution is due solely to the enthusiasm for the 9000 CSE.
The Jost family lives Saab and keeps bringing historic vehicles from Sweden to the Swiss Confederation. The Odoardo gray 9000 CSE is also a direct import from Sweden. A classic in gray and black that is particularly elegant because it is an early CS and not an Aero or Anniversary.
Buy the 9000 Turbo before I do
The Saab is rust-free and has never been welded. The checkbook should be kept completely, its condition is described as well maintained. A little more than 110.000 kilometers are on the speedometer, the 2,3 liter engine produces 200 turbo hp which, in conjunction with a low vehicle weight, ensure full driving performance.
The Saab 9000 CSE 2.3 Turbo has one more year to the H license plate, it is already a classic of the heart. Getting into this elegant, rare Saab isn't really expensive. Much cheaper than when it was new on the farm in 1992.
Garage Jost would like to see CHF 11.900 credited to the account for this. Converted it would be almost 11.000 €, but I think the 9000 will find a home in Switzerland and not wander any further through Europe.
It should be bought, seriously.
Before I even think about it.
