9-3 Griffin heading to the USA

October 13, 2011 in Saabology

Yes, I know that production is still halted, and thus no 9-3 is being build for the North American market, but Saab Cars of North America seems to prepare for the best (and only) outcome of this affair, and information about the MY 12 9-3, also known as the 9-3 Griffin in some parts of Europe, have begun to arise.

I’ve already mentioned it in the forum but still I wanted to bring it to the front page in case some did not see it: June 20th 2011 marked the date when Hirsch Performance products could finally be pre-ordered through the US dealer network.

From what I’ve heared the first parts and software upgrade tools are on their way to the US now. For details please contact your local Saab dealer. If you want to check which products are available in your market you can also visit the Hirsch Performance homepage.

9-4X sales will be counted for July, since it hasn’t even been delivered to a single dealer yet. They are in port however (confirmed by dealer sources) and as I drove over the NJ Turnpike last night looking down into the parking areas I saw amongst the thousands of cars a pretty large pool of what looked to be 9-4Xs by themselves with white hood protectors. I’ll try to take a picture next time I go over it next weekend.

9-5 SC news for the US market (Updated)

June 30, 2011 in News

The internet is a fantastic invention, in 1992 you were able to see if the guys from a British University had enough Coffee in the Trojan room of coffee.

Today somebody has left a back-door open and somebody else has found a 9-5SC catalogue for the US market, albeit without prices.

The guys from Saabworld have put it in the public domain, so it should be OK if I talk about it.

The Brochure of the Saab 9-5 SC MY 12 can be downloaded from the SaabUSA site.

This is the most important page of that catalogue.

Saab US sales data – April 2011

May 3, 2011 in ssd

April 2011 Combined Sales: 696; April 2010 Combined Sales: 215; +224%
YTD 2011: 2,765; YTD 2010: 346; +699%

I think the YTD for 2010 is wrong. They don’t seem to add the cars of the GM months.
Using the January and February numbers the YTD reads as follows.

YTD 2011 2,765; YTD 2010 956; +185%

Breakdown by model

April 2011 Saab 9-5 Sales: 123, YTD 2011: 450

April 2011 Saab 9-3: 573, YTD 2011: 2,315
