Final (old) Saab 9-5 Wagon produced in Trollhattan

As noted in comments, the final Saab 9-5 has rolled off the assembly line in Trollhattan and my guess is that like the final Saab 9000 hat rolled off the line many years ago, this one was made exactly to specifications requested by Peter Backstrom, director of the Saab Museum.
The car, which incidentally is the 483,593th Saab 9-5 since June 1997, is a Snow Silver model, with a 2.3t BioPower engine with 210 horsepower under the hood. It’s pretty much fully loaded, too, with similar spec to a Vector Sport Griffin Edition.
By way of comparison, the Saab 9-5’s predecessor, the Saab 9000, was made for a slightly longer period and hence around 22,000 more of the 9000 were made over its lifetime.
Here’s Peter getting the keys to the car…..and look at all those happy Saab workers in the background πŸ™‚
