The last Saabs have been built… *updated!
February 22, 2012 in SAAB Automobile AB
Today it happened, the last Saab of this chapter was completed, a RHD (right hand drive) independence Edition Saab 9-3 Aero TTiD Convertible. Our photographer RikardH was invited to ANA Special Cars where the final Saabs were being assembled by some very privileged and great ANA employees.
Joachim Lind, CEO at ANA said earlier that ANA considers the task of completing the last Saabs a great honor and privilege which ANA takes very seriously. Having a long history of rebuilding Saab’s into special vehicles ANA was the perfect choice for this very important task.
And so today, to witness the completion of the last car, ANA hosted a media event and SaabsUnited were of course on the invitation list. Rikard showed up at ANA at around 1 PM and was greeted by Joachim Lind. Rikard was shown around the area and given details about the cars. Rikard being one of our top photographers, of course saw it as a great honor to document this event, which was for a selected few people only.
In total 47 convertibles have been built, 21 are Left Hand Drive and are all owned by ANA, the remaining 26 are right hand drive and are owned by the bankruptcy administrators. If anyone would be interested in those 21 LDH cars they are welcome to contact a salesman at ANA and more information about the specific models will be made available. The 26 RHD cars are still in an unwritten chapter, we simply don’t know how these cars will be sold yet.
* UPDATE: All the cars including the RHD models are able to be sold via ANA. ANA can buy these cars from the bankruptcy administrators if a buyer approaches ANA and a deal is made. All customers form the entire world are welcome to contact ANA and the salesmen will do their best to make sure that anyone will be able to buy a car.
