Final production of the last 9-3 Griffin
May 15, 2012 in Fan Stuff
I arrived at ANA and signed the purchasing contract of the car, the money had been transferred only days after we stopped the donations, insurance and other fees have also been paid. After the contract was signed I moved on to the assembly building which is located about 1 km from ANA’s sales facilities. Once there the car had already left for the factory where it went through the brake and lights check at the special facilities located at the very end of the production line inside Saab’s final assembly factory. The car also went through the computer check system and its papers placed in the archive.
The car was also driven out on the short-track test-track where every car is tested for noise and other vibrations. Once this was done the car is officially finished. It was driven out of the main gate at SAAB Automobile and back to ANA’s assembly building. There it was washed and its emblems fitted as well as a final read-out of the computer system, no fault codes were found. The license plates were the last thing to be attached to the car.
Tomorrow the cars details will be entered into Sweden’s national car-register and made ready for delivery. Delivery service will be done and the car will go through an extensive check-list and also have some items such as floor-mats etc inserted and all the plastic protective covers removed. On either monday or tuesday the car will receive its Hirsch Performance engine upgrade that will upgrade the engine from 180 hp to 200 hp.
