Venza Exclusive1Venza Exclusive2While we are looking at this great car, can I ask if you know if any of the right hand drive versions for sale at the auction made it to the United Kingdon. Please email me (robin.kerry (at) virgin.net) if you have any news.

Just makes me curious how they have approved it for public roads.

What makes you think they have?

Well.. they have a lease-deal on their homepage for the car as well, beside the sticker prize. Don’t know how good it is for a car-firm to sell/lease out a car if the one having the key isn’t allowed to use the car.

According to the Venza website the car will be delivered to thenew owner with an APK, which is something similar to an MOT. That would suggest it’s approved for public roads (I guess).

This one is also supposed to get the TÜV first.
Afterwards it depends local rules if TÜV legalisation is recognised so that the car can get a local license plate.
In Holland for example, the APK will be obtained on the basis of the earlier TÜV registration.

Quite possibly, the most beautiful Saab ever made. It’s really that good. Seems like they nailed down every last design detail on the head. Just wonderful. It’s so sad that this car didn’t make it to mass production. Maybe they should have lead with this? Oh well, water under the bridge I guess. I wish there was a way NEVS could take the shape and engineer their own underpinnings.

If NEVS can do an improved version of this one with some lucrative powertrains, they would sell a surprising number of cars around the world.

Agreed. You see this, you want it. I don’t think I’m overstating it by saying it’s a transformational design—-a game changer that would, maybe for the first time—-make people who’ve never considered a station wagon suddenly want one—-this one.

No, it’s not a transformational design, imho. It is just a very good design that refuses the modern sheet metal-folding that so many manufacturers happen to have in copying BMW. Actually, I believe that the reason for this is that the car came later than planned. Much later.

Actually, I had somewhere seen concept images for the 9-5 I that quite closely look like the 9-5 II.

I agree, especially having seen one in person at the 2011 Saab Club North America meet. If Saab had managed to bring this to market I would have had to seriously reevaluate my policy of never going into debt to buy a car. (Believe me when I say that I am a very dedicated cheapskate and do not make that kind of statement lightly.)

I’m a frugal Freddie too Jersey—but sometimes, you see something you want badly enough to throw savings logic out the window. I have a feeling this wagon would have done that to a lot of us—-Saab lovers but much more importantly, non-Saabers who would have certainly become “one of us.” There doesn’t appear to be a bad angle on this car. Wow.

That was my car, the one I was waiting for that never made it to the US and I had to settle for the sedan. Of course my wife likes sedans better and she is the one driving the 9-5 so I have the 9-3 wagon. But I am a wagon guy and I am sure this one would have been sweet.

It is really beautiful. I would be afraid to drive it on a public road…

Precisely. Even IF you could get the car road legal, can it get insured ? And if you could get these two things sorted out, why take it on the road ? It only takes an idiot to drive into the back of the car to make it “not so road legal” for a very very very long time. Just how on earth do you find a new back windscreen for a car like that. Rear bumper ? Unless you’re willing to buy 500 of them in one lot, no parts manufacturer will build just one for you. And any… Read more »

There are other ways to repair cars than by replacing parts, though that of course is difficult for windows. Also, how high a percentage of all cars actually get involved in accidents? And, iirc, Saab drivers are among those with the highest average income. Maybe all the dozen cars end up at people who don’t mind. It is almost as exclusive as a Bugatti Royale.

kochje

Right; this will be a very exclusive car and if anything would once happen the owner(s) do know how to get it repaired.
There are more exclusive cars around for which parts sometimes need to be hand-made.

There is in the same garage a 9-5 NG Biopower as well for much less money.

Seeing this just reminds me of how angry I am at GM for killing Saab.

Actually, I was more or less expecting GM to ask for the tooling, and re-start production in Rüsselsheim as an Opel “Senator”. So, with a little private “badge engineering” we could have had a 9-5. That would have helped Opel a lot, image wise, I guess. But GM apparently is even incapable to arrange for such a transfer.

GM—-feeble folks they are—-would have reorganized in bankruptcy and shed the lard that’s been dragging them under water for so many years—-save for the fact that the current U.S. administration thrives on lard and transfered billions and billions of dollars to GM so they could keep doing what they’ve been doing—that is, fostering a climate of waste and stupidity. Question: How do you drive a GM executive crazy? Answer: Put him in a round room and tell him there’s another billion in tax dollar bailouts in the corner.
