    Sorry to hear you were one of the affected unfortunates at NEVS. I hope they can secure some sort of future soon for people like yourself. I hope you are able to get back to work again soon!

    Anyway to the cars. Congratulations on your latest purchase. I would have loved to have been able to buy a NEVS 93 but sadly they weren’t selling them in…[Read more]

    I’m not usually a fan of convertibles but this car looks awesome. I’d be proud to own this car!

    Great picture and lovely car!!

    So if I’ve read this correctly, NEVS want to manufacture cars, but they also want to become a subcontractor for other OEMs? Well it makes sense in the short term at least. Rather than having a high tech manufacturing facility sitting idle, collecting dust and burning energy for little or no purpose for the next two years, you can produce cars with…[Read more]

    First of all i’d like to say how sorry I am for these employees losing their jobs today. It’s a horrible thing to go through. I’ve been through it myself when I used to work for a large computer manufacturer an similar to Tim, they were scaling back the workforce. Some people are able to do as myself and Tim did, go back into education and move…[Read more]

    I’m delighted to hear this was a successful day and that Mark was able to enjoy the day to the best of his ability. The only thing I’m sorry about is that I personally wasn’t able to make it. I don’t know the guy but I like to try and make an effort for special occasions such as this but I wasn’t in a position to do so. So my apologies for that,…[Read more]

    Sadly I think it’s a sign of the times Martin. I think a lot of people are feeling deflated with the situation SAAB is in yet again. But I completely agree with you, it only takes a couple of minutes to type a few kind words and those few words could make all the difference.

    I’ve only been part of the community for a couple of years now and…[Read more]

    Another way of looking at this news is that they wouldn’t bother with an event like this if something positive wasn’t in the pipeline given the state the company is in right now. It wouldn’t make sense for them to throw away money by putting this on show at this late stage if the company was going to close it’s doors and sell up. In my view they…[Read more]

    I’m sorry to hear this news, it’s sad to hear of this happening to anyone. I don’t know the chap but he seems well liked in the SAAB community. I won’t make it personally, but I would like to wish him a lovely day and I hope the weather holds out for you and everyone involved in the event!

  • This is great news :)

    Now if only they could start shipping right hand versions to the UK, that would be awesome! It’s not going to happen I know but one can dream!!

  • I think in all fairness that it’s probably not worth their while doing a lot of marketing given they are only licensed to sell 1000 units per year, plus it’s an old model so it makes sense to hold off until the […]

    Looks good mate! I was considering getting my Aero wheels refurbed with a different colour. The standard colour looks good but I was thinking something a bit darker. Not as dark as yours but in between that and […]

  • Cool, will look forward to seeing that :) . Was hoping the Hirsch jacket might have been available in large for us slightly larger than life chaps :) . I like the Hirsch emblem.

  • Any chance the Hirsch Jackets will be available in large at any point?

  • This is great to see. Thanks for posting Tim.

    I’ll be watching with interest to see who’s going to be the engine supplier/s! One thing I’ve noticed is no spoiler this time on the boot, though I guess that could […]

  • Nice to see the old with the new. It’s funny, when i see the old model on the road i sometimes think it looks dated, but then other times you see a really nice example such as the one in this picture and think, […]

  • Looking good Tim! It’s nice to see things coming together isn’t it?

    I’ve managed to get the griffin spoiler installed on my 08 TTID and I must say it’s transformed the car :) . Such a shame SAAB didn’t fit the […]

  • One can’t help but feel the picture is staged, not that it’s a bad thing. Just the guy on the phone accidentally (deliberately) left the door open which happened to have (possibly) the new 9-3 designs in plain […]

  • My opinion is this, since they are using the old model to begin with before moving to the phoenix chassis They should give it the final send of it deserved in the first place. Call it the 9-3 Griffin as it was […]

  • I could be wrong but this is how i look at it, and if i’m wrong i’m sure Tim having knowledge of how the factory worked will correct me.

    When old SAAB were still on the go they manufactured two types of car at […]
