My understanding is that everything of value in NEVS has been pawned/mortgaged (pantsatt) to pay the taxes and other accounts. Negotiations with the 2 interested parties are still ongoing and core employees still going to work. Production will not resume until earliest mid September, this year….
All according Swedish media.
In the demo NG 9-5 Aero and the rental TID, I remember a few issues directly.
A. Squeaky door in sides.
B. Loose panels on dashboard, especially the instrument cluster cover. Was loose, can be pushed upwards high enough to put a finger between the cover and the cluster.
C. Loose outside trims. At one point the TID lost the front light spray…[Read more]
So, for you who don’t know or had a chance to drive one of these beautiful cars – it is BRILLIANT on the road!!! Somewhere on youtube there is a driven interview with the chassi engineer who developed the suspension and related parts, and it is effing awesome! I have only tried 2 different setups, A. the NG 9-5 XWD Aero, and B. the 9-5 TiD, both…[Read more]
At 136kUS$ it’s not that freakishly expensive, for what it is, imho. A lot of hitech for your buck and 3 bang(er)s… This is Porsche 911 or Audi R8 territory, nowhere near the italian prices (excluding Maserati)…
Simply – good value for money… Yes?
I have to agree with Angelo. I cannot see how Saab will ever have the funding to develop, design, integrate and then mass produce anything similar to the i8. UNLESS, a white knight comes along with extremely deep pockets and a need for an existing brand to launch this or similar new technology. The brand “image” and past times of Saab might be…[Read more]

…at least for us who could not be there…
Thanks for sharing.
Filmed with what equipment, I wonder…???
Brilliant! This is what we should have been offered years ago! A DI 4-pot with some serious pull. Put this in a vert and I just might not wait for the electric version…
A light in the darkness, I hope NEVS can get through the current situation…
Nope, the internal facelift came in MY2007, the external in 2008.
Still, my favorite car, the 9-3 SC is the most original later Saab designs.
Would this one look better with the Ice Block rear lights?
Or maybe the lower Roof Rails…?
Matter of taste, but certainly a cool car.
Enjoy the Ice Cream, Drive safely!
Angelo, since we have only this to talk about for the moment, do you mind recapping your “dream” of Mahindra taking over Saab – why would that be so good? I just can’t remember the discussions and arguments form before, and maybe some new ones…?

Fingers crossed this will work out, eventually….
One way or another.
This is exactly the car I once had, but mine was Scarabaeus Green. My first car purchased brand spanking new, collected at the factory in Trollhättan. Great solid Car and engine, however, dynamics were front heavy and heavily understeering. But that does not seem to stop these guys, great show!
Impressive girl and car. 0-100 in two seconds, constant sliding, drifting jumping and opponent contact… Best wishes for Ramona and the team!
…and watch the video, talk about fast feet…
Want want want…!!!
Brilliant idea and seems to work well. I have over the last years wanted to see my 0-100 easily, AND been contemplating what feature do I really really miss. It’s the auto 3 blink function,now on most cars I see and test…
Getting one, if at all possible!
