Four seasons convertible – Part 6

It’s been a little while between entries, but I do have more winter convertibles to show you, celebrating the all-weather nature of Saab’s drop top.

Marien has a 2.0T Vector convertible, black on parchment, that’s tuned by Maptun. It’s driven in all weather, and as long as it’s 6 degrees or more and not raining, the top’s down.

It’s shown here with 17 light alloys fitted with winter tyres.

Thanks Marien!

Cost control in new Saab indeed seem to be restrictive. De Geers is relieved to get 50 employees off the payroll. The article also shows how touchy the subject is of tax money going to support Saab.

The new company, Vicura, will develop and sell solutions for double clutch gearboxes. It changed name to Vicura from Saab Automobile Transmissions which were started in 2010. There were no employees registered in that company but Kjell AC Bergstrom was the chairman. I would say the risk capital company might have done a good deal if they have taken over the company including some patents.

Gourgeous vehicle!! I want one 🙂 To me, the 9-3 is simply the most desirable convertible on the market. I’m not a convertible man, but the 9-3 evokes something inside me. I think the lines of the body are so elegant. It would have been awesome to see a coupe version.

+1 I often wonder if i fit the bill as a “covertible” person or not, but I’d sure love to have one on those sunny spring and fall days. I’ll take mine in snow silver, please.

I’m with you guys, but I’m starting to think one of these may be in our future. A 6-speed convertible, along with our 9-3 Combi, might be a nice stable.

Love those pictures expecially once you had dug your car out of the snow. Do you just swap tires between summer and winter tires or do you have seperate rims for your winter tires? I was kinda thinking about getting a decicated set of winter tires but was looking to mount them on Saab 16″ rims which arent cheap.

Just get steel rims, in the US they are about $50. If you want them to look nicer then get some plastic wheel covers, about $10.
