Paging Steven Wade….
Yes, I thought the Phoenix platform was what came “next” and not the existing 9-3 platform. So, yes, we knew that NEVS was working on a full electric prototype based on the last available 9-3 (that was demoed in Sweden a while back), but the Phoenix platform was the future. Has that now been sold also?
This is great news! But to be sure I understand the information in this post, where it says “A new mirror will work fine with an older one, if you only need to replace one” does this mean if you only need to replace the mirror on one side of the car they are telling you the electronics will still work? And does that also mean that the only parts…[Read more]

Of course, I do not know them personally, but this seems very hard to believe that Mr. Jonsson and Ms. Geers would knowingly be a part of something like this.
I visited Norway with my parents 25 years ago, or so. It was our first time ever in Norway. We visited areas around Stavanger and Bergen. My ancestors lived near Vik and Stadheim in Sogn og Fjordane. (My mother’s family name here in the U.S. is “Stime” and we think that is because when they came to America they said they were from Stadheim and…[Read more]
Congratulations on your new red 9-5!
Although my ancestors came from Norway, I have not been there in about 25 years. When I was last there it was summer, but perhaps I did not go far enough north to still see snow in July!
I also read an article recently that said that whether an EV is “greener” than an IC vehicle is a function of what the electric power plans in your region use to generate electricity. I believe that China (like many parts of the US) primarily uses coal-fired plants to generate electricity. So, unless China is planning to make big moves to…[Read more]
GM never knew what to do with Saab. So much so that when finances were tight, they just wanted to shut it down. What makes you think they would know what to do with Saab now, especially when it would take LOTS of money to come up with a new design to build, test and sell?
Recent reports here in the US are saying that GM is losing ground again…[Read more]
I like and admire the Tesla technology also, but the range of a Tesla, as currently built is just not practical to be my daily driver and a Tesla is too expensive a car to have just for fun…at least for me. I do think electric cars do have a future for those where the range is adequate, but I an still trying to figure out what car to get after…[Read more]

You cannot call Muller “the main thief”. If he/Spyker had not fought to buy Saab when GM wanted to shut it down, GM would have continued and shut Saab down at that point (just like they did with Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer). Victor Muller was not successful trying to keep Saab going, but he is hardly a “thief”.
I love all the remarkable engineering that goes into Koenigsegg cars! This video only hints at what is involved. If you have not seen the Drive series of videos where Christian takes you through each major system of the car and how they design and manufacture it….you need to watch those also. Truly amazing!
I like the idea of an article from time to time that goes into some detail (perhaps with photos!) of how to handle a general Saab maintenance issue, but I do not think the main blog entry part of SU should turn into a general “how to” section for fixing our Saabs. There are already several other sites that specialize in that and in today’s world…[Read more]
Just in the last few weeks I have seen VW ads on TV touting the fact that VW turbo 4 engines offer the benefit of power and torque keeping the car fun to drive while also fuel efficient. It was a bit sad to think that if Saab were still active and viable now, they could run ads welcoming the rest of the automotive world to the values Saab had…[Read more]
