I’ll keep my TXSC fresh and fun for as long as possible…
You were one of my few heroes.
As a SAAB fan, I am forever grateful for you spreading the word, even at times upside down.
A sad day, it is…
Just saw you eyeing the Monte Carlo on the Saab 96 project on “For the love of cars”.
Recommended viewing in your memory…
Haha….sounds like a true(d) petrolhead! Save the batteries…
Saabplanet had a link to an old Saab commercial in which the AeroX played a significant role. Like a new Sonet…well I can dream can’t I? Will try to keep my iconic (?) TXSC running for many years to come though…
What I don’t get is the press release says nothing about the THN…[Read more]
Great to see that Jay is actually appreciating the finer details of the Koeinigsegg Trevita. Design, workmanship, technology, virtually all proprietary. Chris seems to be a decent bloke as well. Love the naming of their supercars, a great play with the Swedish words and language, that works well when used in english as well.
I have no clue what to read or believe from this, but agree this time with our angel.
Nevertheless, me too, keeping every lim crossed for some kind of vehicle production in Trollhättan. Anything really, under any flag, platform, propulsion, name or brand… The facilities are supposed to be very good, there are people wanting to work and taxes to…[Read more]
Finally a great positive and technically interesting story. I love the sleeper theme and that 4 banger sure would be liked by many Saab crews. I’d take one… But this is a one off, unique motor.
Great job, looking forward to more pics and info!

Sad, really. New MacLarens are produced every day, Saab convertibles…. not so much…
NeoBro’s are good, can also get you used parts if desired. Others are likely able to provide many various parts, eEuroparts, RockAuto, GoldWing Saab, etc… Take some research time, but most parts are readily available somewhere, except maybe certain, exclusive body panels and trim, ie for the NG 9-5, TurboX…
The CPS is a common part, not sure…[Read more]
I understand the problem with the SAAB brandname. While SAAB Defence is doing very well, most people believe the SAAB is bankrupt. This is to the detriment for Defence, the public’s perception that they’re out of business. To be dragged in and out of media headlines, questioning their viability by association to NEVS and Saab Cars is highly…[Read more]
Say what you want, I like the new XC90 (but too expensive a car for me, personally).
Also, Volvo have increased their sales in China with over 30% which helped a total sales of over 466,000 vehicles… Congratulations to them!
Now, how many did Saab sell, even their best years…?
First I was not sure about the new XC90. Now, I’m getting to appreciate it and it’s growing on me.
There is a theme, focusing on safety and driveline tech. Volvo’s goal that no-one should die or be seriously injured in Volvo is a great start. The hybrid driveline is fantastic, at least on paper, with up to 390 bhp combined.
However, even with an…[Read more]
Tata has done wonders with Jaguar, also thanks to Ford, that’s clear. Possible a rather well defined car buyer, in search of style, elegance and exclusiveness. Not many Jaguar buyers would consider ie fuel consumption or tax bracket?
While I don’t know for sure where from the Jag Tech stems, the engines are (mostly?) Ford based.
I remember the…[Read more]
