Range 200 K is more than respectable. That would be about 125 miles. I think that is the news of the day. That makes this car work for about 60 % of everyone. Remember Nissan Leaf is about 40 miles. And Elon Musk’s car is about $ 100,000, or more. These would sell well on American’s west/east coasts.
Not a bad gambit, if there are two real bidders out there, this may be for their benefit, not ours. And it wasn’t something impressive, why would they bother to show at this point? My guess is, whatever it is, it’s better than Nissan Leaf. Maybe twice the range?

100% Saab; I agree with you. My three 9- 3s are worth perhaps at this point, no more than $11-$12,000. They’re beginning to break down. One has 127,000, the other has 117,000, and the youngest one only has 90,000. What’s breaking ? The computers operating the doors, I.e. not locking,or unlocking correctly. alarms systems that go off when they…[Read more]
What’s amazing about the Combi, Is the amount of stuff you get in the back of it. We use our Combi, and our 97X, for business. When using the Combi the we get over 30 miles a gallon. Which reduces our cost factors by over one half. US government gives you the same deduction, .56.6 cents per mile gallon, no matter what you drive. I would’ve…[Read more]
So why the sour grapes? The moderators on this board have since the beginning, including the previous two owners, been very supportive of any ownership that would keep the factory open. Even the worst critics on this blog, in theory supported this position. What was the alternative? No Saab? Yes, I agree, a lot of the comments from the…[Read more]
p.s. our 9-7X is going to work tomorrow to make us money for our business. It is kind of a blue collar Saab. if you know what I mean.
Bradley Did you ever drive a 9-7? Is it possible you only disliked it because of GM?. The 9-7x was one of the best sellers in the end. We have had one for 6 years and I can tell you it is the second best Saab we have owned ( and we still own 5) of the 12 we have owned since 1985. What is an embarrassment and is continuing car snobbery by Saab…[Read more]
Angelo; so we have another financial house of cards, this time Chinese style. I agree with both you and jond. Only good can come from this. At least for us here on the North American continent. I think the Indians would love to enter the US market with Saab leading the way for their product line. I wouldn’t give up so quickly on the electric car…[Read more]
Tim: Thanks for this depressing report. How many times does the line shut down and come back in automotive history? I don’t know, but this is not good. What is good is the Saab United reported it and did not sugar coat it. A big plus for SU.
So much for the deep pockets out of China. Can’t a group of European businessmen get their hands on this…[Read more]
You know we have start thinking about the historical importance of the 9-3 at this point. Here is a car, in it’s present form, at least 12 years old, still being made, but under 3 distinct manufacturers! I don’t think this has happened before In 120 years of car production, can anyone think of another?
We have 3, and you tell you we love them…[Read more]
Good question Tim! My answers were electric, and then natural gas. Here is why. A breakthrough in battery technology will delay, or end global warming. Two, we have discovered large reserves of natural gas in the […]
Here is my question about this. Is it save to go back in the water now? I mean I thinking of selling my 9-3 Aero’s as they now have 240,000 between the two. Are there still other NLA parts out there for the NG […]
This is interesting. NEVS has made it first marketing move to induce people to buy more Saabs. Ok, it only in Sweden I know, but if they were truly disinterested in other markets as some think, they would not have […]
Right now Enose, I’m not sure how many Yuppie buyers for retro Saabs remain in N.A. But I would think they are rarer than hen’s teeth. I’m about as hardcore as they come. I have 5 Saabs at this time. But even I […]
So the face lifted 9-3 will be out in two weeks, that is cool. I was looking at an Audi A4 today, I concluded Audi needs a face lift more than the 9-3 does. But, as far as the white Saab is concerned. It is a […]
