    Dan P! You are driving my car! Except mine is silver and it nearly went to the tip just this morning. Your list is my list, and like you I refuse to let it die, mainly because I don’t have serious money to buy anything decent that would be a suitable replacement.
    What State are you in? Vic for me.

    Nice reflection Till, and thanks. I wonder what a decent Q and A session with someone who is close to the action would provide at this point. There must be a reliable source, even from NEVS(?), who might provide some much needed clarity without compromising negotiations.

    Do we actually know for certain at this juncture who ‘the major OEMs’ actually are? Or have I missed that bit?
    I can’t imagine the suppliers getting bitten for a third time. That’s a bridge too far…

    Keeping our cars on the road is The Imperative. I love my 9-5 Estate to bits. Literally. I am constantly maintaining and fixing it so it runs as well as it can. After 200,000km and 12 years it is still doing a fabulous job doing what it was designed to do. No other car i have come across does what this car does. Two beds in the back, any Ikea…[Read more]

    Great article, RedJ, and thanks for the little ray of sunshine you have given. Personally I think it looks really clean and Scandinavian, as Saab should be. Full marks for showing this too. I love my 04 9-3 dash, with all the buttons, though and it makes me smile every time I drive it. In its day it was well received and still is today, for that…[Read more]

    That would be the ‘youngest’ 9-5 on the road, anywhere! Brilliant thing.

    One of the issues us ‘fans’ have faced for some time now is the real lack of any media on anything Saab. And now we seem to know less than next to nothing. That’s fine and i respect the logic around it, and I certainly don’t begrudge NEVS for this approach however now would be a good time to say Something, be it good or bad.

    Brilliant car. Truly brilliant. However, we all know that Saab can’t compete with that level of inherited IP. It simply can’t. There have been so many interruptions to their lineage over the decades, whereas BM have had the family behind them with all that stability.

    Saab, in many people’s minds was always ‘quirky’, and ‘interesting’. If only Saab could be that again someday. Be brave, and be different. DO what Citroen (DS Pallas!!) did back in he 70s and see what happens. But above all, the car needs to look really nice, evoke an emotional response, and actually BE good.
