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]
I have not seen a complete line up of Mahindra’s vehicles, BUT I have seen a few. Enough to opine that they are nowhere near ready for prime western markets, as of today. An injection of design, engineering from what-was-Saab could possibly help, but as Koeningsegg realized early in the process, the clock is ticking and time is running…[Read more]
So here a question – where does jaguar get its tech from, now when it’s owned by TaTa? Is it in-house developed or purchased from third party suppliers?
I believe that big companies like Valeo, VDO/Siemens, etc, would likely be interested in deveoping and supplying similar features as the cutting edge tech from the main car brands…
Exactly – look at their offerings. They are well positioned for the local (and honestly rather unsophisticated) market, but it’s protected from any major outside competition by an amazing amount of red tape and bureaucracy…
I think you paid MUCH more of the taxpayers money to the ailing US manufacturers, ie GM & Chrysler groups….
Now when they have modernized their offerings, prizes have significantly increased.
But to that our angel says nothing???
Not as much as you think…

Peter W, KAK’s president “criminally” parking in central Stockholm – on the KAK homepage a link to “Attitydförändring” or change of attitude – suggest a Hero for a safer traffic ?!!
Probably not mr PW himself, but at least he can afford to pay for the fines…

theSandySaab commented on the post, What I drive now while waiting for a future swedish sportscar. 4 months, 2 weeks ago
All the M’s and now the M4 are really nice cars, no question about it. While I was extremely happy with my Saab 900 SE Coupe in 1996, one of my friends had a 328i Coupe 1996 and the dynamics were like night and day. In direct comparison, the BMW manual gearbox was really nice with a solid feel, while the Saab was a bit spongy. The BMW steering was…[Read more]
