Saab 9-3 Independence Edition

Spotted in the public domain.

Now that is one good looking convertible.

If you’ve been keeping pace, you’ll know that the Saab 9-3 Independence Edition will be a limited edition, with just 366 cars world wide.

Hit that link for the details we (believe we) know so far.

UPDATE: Also seen in the public domain…..

Thanks to Knape for the tip.

AEROpolis is a lithuanian SAAB’s official repair and care center. What means AERO, knows everyone, and polis translates into english as pole (for example: north pole, south pole), not as police, anyway, in swedish it sounds like AEROpolice, because polis is police in swedish.

Wouldn’t that have been nice to see at the (Toronto) Canadian Auto Show this week. Too bad, from my investigation on their website, Saab (canada) won’t be there at all. If this is the final truth, save for last minute show up (not published) then “what are they thinking”! All this week in Toronto the Auto Show is talk talk talk – over 5 million people in the general region. Nobody even knows Saab is alive here in Canada.

Red J
Guest

It is strange, as I can remember to have seen Saab on their map, and the Saab facebook site still announces the event, and Autonet.ca shows Saab on their Toronto Auto show page.

Maybe somebody from Springman’s Saab can tell us what happened !!!

North Toronto Punter
Guest

Unbelievably, Saab does not show on the official program (web nor print) of the Toronto International Auto Show (http://www.autoshow.ca/maps/). This was confirmed by a local dealer [Budd’s] during our [Saab Club of Canada] meeting there this past Wednesday.

However, Saab will be there. And a 9-4x too! Apparently we’re nestled on the first floor near Ferrari and other exotics. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it down as I’m travelling. But somebody local is bound to comment…

The wheels are amazing, but my favorite part might be the fog light surround. The new grille is pretty stunning as well. Knowing this is also similar to the facelifted 9-3, it’s amazing what a little tweak can do to make the previously facelifted car look old.

Picture of the seats reminded me of the Chicago Auto Show yesterday and the ONLY thing that bugs me about my and ALL 93s….NO perforated seats on ANY model!!! Solid leather seats become uncomfortable on sunny days over 20*C and really no amount of AC changes that. Maybe its a Swedish thing cuz ovlov are the same. But there are Camrys, Kias, Suzukis, VWs that are not in the 93s price range that DO. I use one of those cabdriver bead things all spring, summer and fall and on interstate trips the TiD loves and that does the job. Now… Read more »

Sorry Fred I happen to like my leather served solid 🙂
It is actually something I would look for -perhaps your perforated idea could be an option but a few people I know round here just would not consider it as it looks cheap-its standard on many Fords and Korean cars which turns me off, also it doesn’t wear as well and is more fragile after 5 years and 100,000 miles it looks bad and is more prone to tearing.
I my view it one sure way to ruin decent leather and I am glad its just not considered currently.

Bravada from GMI
Guest
5 years 6 months ago

I do find perforated leather classy, especially if paired with solid-leather parts as in the good old mid-lift 9-5:

That said, the most important part is the actual ventillation of the leather. The 9-3 really should get that feature, along with the heated steering wheel and heated wipers.

Red J
Member
5 years 6 months ago

Bravada,
perforated leather is easy to do, but to introduce ventilated seats, heated steering wheel and heated wipers could be by far more expensive than the extra money from the extra sold cars.

The NG9-3 is another thing.

BTW, the perforated/ventilated black seats of my DE9–5 look fabulous. 😉

Bravada from GMI
Guest

Well, this is very old GM thinking. We don’t know if this will sell, so let’s skip it. GM (and everybody’s favourite Bob Lutz) thought nobody will care about navigation or rear armrest in the NA Epsilons, so they’ve skipped it, automatically rendering the car obsolete. The sole availability of features such as navigation or the abovementioned elements makes enhances the car’s image. Not many people are like me, who will pass a great car over the inavailability of certain features (apart from classic cars, no cars w/o Bluetooth for me), but certainly building a thoroughly Scandinavian car focused on… Read more »

Bravada,
this is not GM thinking, although you are right in your argumentation, But we are talking here about a car with an estimated life of 1,5 – 2 Years, after that it will be replaced, furthermore we are talking about a car company that needs to maximize the profit out of every cent it invests.

The money they invest in the current 9-3 is money they can’t invest in the NG9-3, it is not that simple, but I think this describes the situation quite well.

Toby

@ Bravada.
They should not be standard across the board for the reasons already stated. I would go out of my way to avoid perforated leather. They should be an option on Ventilated seats

fred diesel
Guest

A lot of it has to do with where you live and how much you drive. In sunny, usually hot southern US, Id think absolutely. Even in Chicago, when I drive tons of interstate with a car that will go 600 miles on a tank, sitting in one place for four hours or so needs more than a solid leather seat. And it makes a huge difference with the AC too. The 95s have it and Im sure if its done properly, durability should not be an issue.

I like what they’ve done for the Independence Edition, and especially the colour. Even so, that picture only strengthens my previous conviction: I don’t like modern cars! Compare that 9-3 with a proper car, like this one. The front of the 9-3 is twice as high! The edge of the hood of the 900 would probably hit an average pedestrian slightly above the knee, while the 9-3 would reach the hip. This is of course not a Saab thing, it’s the same for all cars. But why? Apart from making the cars much uglier, you would also expect the higher… Read more »

I prefer the normal Aero. There is to many details now on this independence-version. This extra detail inside the fog-light-hole are to much and in addition to everything else happening on this front becoming overwhelming and to far away from the understated simplicity which is one ons the strengths about Saab.

Börjesson
Guest
Börjesson
5 years 6 months ago

I usually agree with your views on design. But do you really feel that an extra-special limited edition “hey look at us” anniversary model should primarily be defined by “understated simplicity”? This model’s main purpose is to stand out, so it’s only reasonable that the designers go a little crazy.

Troels, Denmark
Guest
5 years 6 months ago

No, I can follow you that this edition has to stand out and I like the special color and accept the rims, intetrior etc. I just don’t like so many things happening in the front and I think that the detail inside the fog-lamp-hole it the one that tilt the balance …

Bravada from GMI
Guest

I do kinda agree with Troels. The previous “special editions” (I mean Anniversaries here) have been much more tasteful. Even the Viggen, which was anything but understated, carried the typical Saab design traits of simplicity and balance. This is the first time I can say a Saab look busy.

For whatever reason, both the foglight treatment, the alloys, the colour and the upholstery simply don’t resonate with me.

I love the 2007 Annis:

That said, I am still a sucker for the 9-3. It might not be the newest car in the market, but it certainly has the looks.

We actually have two of these cars coming to us at Springman’s. Not sure when to expect them yet, it was reported on here yesterday that a dealer in Edmonton was expecting one next week which I would find highly unlikely. We ordered one in auto and one in stick. I think the colour will look amazing when you see it in person for those that are concerned with it, web photo’s never do a car justice.

Jason Powell
Guest

Red J, It is possible for it to be the first new Saab for that area because the dealer was not part of the original 12 dealers that signed up with Saab last year and it does take some time to get our orders in Canada. I just don’t think it’s possible for them to be getting that particular car that quickly. I have two ordered and I have not been given a date for arrival so if they are getting theirs that quickly, I would be amazed and pleasently surprised. I just received my 9-5 Aero’s, so if they… Read more »

Jason,
just for curiosity.
The guy at Just Saab in Cincinnati that send Swade the pictures of the “wooden” 9-4X said that the wood* would be better than the wood* from the 9-5.
As we see almost no wooden 9-3 here in Europe, how do the wood* in the 9-3 and the wood* in the 9-5 compare?

*Maybe its only fake wood, but I call it Wood

Jason Powell

Red J, The wood trim in the 9-5 and 9-3 that AJ would have been talking about seems to be the same as eachother. I haven’t had a chance to ask him how the 9-4X is better, but in the 9-3, it’s a very small amount of wood trim and in both it’s quite dark so I’m not sure if the concern of the wood trim was that it was too dark in both models or if it’s more of a concern on how shiny it is???? I personally think it still looks good in both models and I’m sure… Read more »

The best rims on the 9-5 (‘Black Turbines’ aka ‘Panthers’). Period. Against just about any body colour. I wouldn’t buy the car without them (even the Hirsch wheels don’t come close IMHO). And I might very well buy because of them! Pity the brouchure omits — and all other wheels — from the options list (never mind the ‘Technical specs’ of the 9-5) . The online configurator for Canada remains still-born.

Sorry but SAAB’s should be understated and classy in my book.
On this one I think SAAB’s lost the plot completely.
Im not a fan of the stripe in the seats and the silver detail on the side of the foglights is just a joke…why ???
The new style larger foglight surrounds I can live with.
As for the orange colour, its everyones personal choice,but for me SAAB’s should only come in black !
Not that i’m knocking orange….I had a bright orange FIAT X1/9 when I was younger.

Isn’t that to take understated to a too low level? Would a black standard 9-3 Linear with 16″ rims be enough understated? Write something about what you would have expected in a special edition instead of “lost it all” statements over some fog lights.

There is nothing wrong with a 9-3 Linear if that is what somebody wants (and I’ve considerd one). I am only stating my personal opinion. Personaly I would love to see a special edition convertible with the Carlsson (UK special edition) full Hirsch leather interior and the Hirsch aerodynamic bits.. Fan ventilated leather seats would also be nice like in the old 9-5 Aeros (UK). The current UK TTid Aero convertible is great (I have one), apart from the low rent GM plastics in the interior and the poor sounding CD player. (I am comparing it to the two 9-5’s… Read more »

Ok. I also like the UK Carlsson edition. I think to make a special model you need to bring something more though and I think this is what Saab has done. A black 9-3 vert upgraded with Hirsh components is however great it is an upgraded vert and if you have the money you can build your own special edition. Here you will get something unique (as far as we know now that is). Special color, rims, special fog lights?, as well as Hirsch interior.

I can see an awful lot of negative comments about this which saddens me…for those that want understatement I think the Aero is available with a premium interior…I’m sure there will also be a final final special edition once Saab formerly announce the ng9-3 to help shift last of the older stock.
I for one think this brash approach puts the ailing brand back on the map-it needs to be a high profile “Hello” and I am sure many people especially the younger folks will welcome the styling/detailing. This model was meant not to be understated for very specific reasons.

“awful lot of negative comments”?

It seems to me that the negative comments (some of the silly joke ones aside) can be counted on one hand.

I’d also like to point out that e.g. Troels is a professional Scandinavian designer. Even though I do not always agree with him, I still learn a lot from his comments (both the negative as well as the positive ones). I’m not sure you counted his comment among those you considered ‘negative’, so I am probably missing the mark by a mile, but a clarification would be nice. 🙂
