I prefer “SaabsUntied”, personally!
When there are a million cars on the road, though, I guess the difference between “not much” and “none” might become significant.
On the tyres things – i’m sure there will be another solution, one day. Someone will release a much superior material with better wear, grip and longevity. Some people won’t want it.
The limitations of EVs will…[Read more]
Well,quite. What I’m saying is it’s a tough market and it’s probably best left to others to fight for it.
Fortunately the likes of VW, Skoda, Alfa, Volvo, BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot, Renault, Fiat, Subaru, , etc etc have finally caught up to the innovative Saab of the late 20th century, and you can get your turbocharged 4cyl petrol from any of them, today!
Yes, unless Saab AB decide to allow it, that is. Not quite that definitive, yet.
This is absolutely true, but there are huge benefits to allowing the coal plant to be the polluter and not the cars in the city.
Containing the pollution and thus improving the air quality in populated areas is one of the aims here that will have huge knock-on effects for health… hey, it might even help cut some health spending, you can’t…[Read more]
Solar and hydrogen are still electric, no?
From what I can gather by hat NEVS has said, they want to build high-end electric cars with the Saab badge whilst taking into account Saab’s innovative and pioneering heritage.
They just haven’t got there (yet), and the whole 2014 9-3 was a huge and unnecessary sidetrack. Although people DO say it’s the best balanced 9-3 of them all. It just…[Read more]
I can’t see the point of making the same comments every time after all these years. But I’m sure we’ll all wake up when something important actually happens. For now, I’m very happily into my older Saab’s, and looking forward to the day we see some interesting engineering and design come out of Trollhattan again. The brand is still special.
Currently in TAS which makes things that much harder.. I put a big order in with eEuroparts and now I am waiting for it to arrive. When it does, it’s time to get stuck in. I’ve never done a HG before but I’m willing to have a go! to be fair, I paid $800 for the car and I expected it to be a bit broken. It’s perhaps just a little more buggered than…[Read more]
Yeah this is a nice bit of PR work by Orio. I can think of another relatively new Swedish company that perhaps should’ve engaged the community like this..!
Anyway, as the new owner of a rather maligned ’99 9-5 Wagon, this feels very close to home so I’ll be following with jealous interest.
A sample of my to-do list: • head gasket • all motor…[Read more]
The car that could’ve saved Saab, IMO. The 94-X was probably more important than the 9-5, certainly here in Australia. The premium SUV market was still there for the taking at the time, and I think the 9-4X is a really handsome car that would’ve changed the perception of Saab. Too bad it never made it.
This is excellent! Well done guys! Too bad there aren’t more Sonett’s kicking about, what a great little piece of Saab history that is all-but forgotten by the public. Any chance of hearing that engine note? Love the V4 sound.
Nice to see an article from you again, Jeff.
My thoughts on any Apple pushes into automotive are that they will be purely technology-based. I can’t for the life of me imagine why they would want to go so off-campus and get into building cars. I’d guess they are interested in selling various pieces of technology to automakers. I think there will…[Read more]
Absolutely. I’m very fond of Sonett’s, although none came to Australia originally. Good luck getting her back on the road, and may this old article give you some inspiration saabsunited.com/2009/07/saab-sonett-heaven-on-flickr.html
I’ve got 2 Saab’s now and I think it’s the way to go – collect them and care for them. I’m looking to add a…[Read more]
