Monday morning snippets

It feels good to be back in the saddle. Did I miss much?

Whilst I actually like the Porsche Panamera, I know that a lot of people out there think it looks worse than a bashed crab.

Saabers of such a mindset should take heart, then, when hearing that Porsche sold 22,500 Panameras in the model’s first full year on the market. If there’s room out there for 22,500 bashed crabs, there’s got to be room for 45,000 beautiful Saabs.

Audi seem to be taking the BMW route of building every variant possible of every model they make, albeit without forcing new niches that people may not really want.

The new A7 Sportback might be the answer to the Saab 9-5 hatchback question that I’m sure a few people are asking.

Yes they could.

It’s a bit late for this one, but a car show on Sunday in Connecticut was to feature not only a collection of beautiful, shiny, valuable things, but also a collection of dirty and dusty ‘barn finds’.

Believe it or not…..The eight old clunkers were carefully selected from a large field of applicants and included in the display is a 1965 1968? Saab 96 that sat for 30 years.

Saab 9-5s keep arriving around the US, like this one in 100% Saab‘s local dealer in Lubbock, Texas…..

……and this one in Baton Rouge, LA.

Warning: Listening to this song by Andy Rupert may hypnotise you into test driving a Saab. Or acting like a chicken. Or both (test driving a chicken?)
