More from NYC: Saab’s PR Video

While this video from Saab PR really doesn’t answer the average SU regular’s questions, it does show some good shots of the PhoeniX, 9-4x, 9-5SC, Independence Edition 9-3 Convertible, and the bustling stand in NY. If you live within 50 miles, it’s worth the drive out, I promise you. It’s nice to hear from Matthias (who has some real fighting words for competitors!), Victor, and Jason, but you also get to see an interview with Andreas Andersson, who I got to speak with on a few occasions last week and impressed me a great deal, and even Swade himself from behind the wheel of the IE 9-3. Nice work, mate!

I’m waiting to hear back from several key Saab people on questions I asked and need clearance to post information about publicly, and when I do you’ll get a final NYC wrap up. Questions ranging from little details like will the 9-3 headlamps have a reworked LED lighting system that also functions as daytime running lights? (yes…) To big subjects like GM involvement on the 9-4x going forward. Thanks for your patience as we and Saab juggle all this information.

The word must be getting out. I got asked a question about the 9-3 vert today.

Someone referred to me as the local Saab expert. Maybe not that much of a complement in Lubbock, Texas.

πŸ™‚ “local Saab expert” is a title to be worn with pride….

And I suspect in Lubbock, you well may be. I have three Saabs and another on order. In Massachusetts that just makes me one of the crowd. πŸ™‚

Bought a wonderful oak 9-5 Aero today. Not to save the company (even though it might help) but because it is great value for the money and has much more character than the boring Germans πŸ˜‰

My colleague picked up a brand new 9-3 last Friday, so that makes +2 for the US in April. Great deals, great time to buy.

For your information: a similar equiped BMW would have cost me $20,000 extra. And I got 10 inches of rear seat space as a bonus (when does Saab start mentioning this class leading cabin space in their ad’s, website etc?)

Does anybody know when the 2011.5 or 2012 SAAB 9.3 Griffin (220hp) will be arriving on USA shores or Dealers??

Nobody knows, but till the production is still on hold, there is no need for speculations. πŸ™

Jeff, have you shared that the PhoeniX Concept is on the cover of the New York International Auto Show’s program magazine? It’s quite fetching… and good exposure too!
