The more serious stuff is below, including a very good look at the Saab 9-5 SportCombi.
I’ve only just had a chance to settle in front of the computer after another travel day, coming from Geneva to Gothenburg via London. You wouldn’t think it would take that long, but it did.
Anyway, I’m knackered. But I did received the following question via email from Rikard tonight.
[Let’s imagine] You need to fit 4 kids and 2 adults into a car along with luggage. Will we ever see a SAAB that can manage this equation… legally…?
The serious answer to this question, according to everything I know, is “No”. There are no plans for a 7-seat Saab as far as I’m aware.
However, given that I’m rather tired, my mind has entered that creative space where you come up with unusual solutions.
My proposal is that Saab allow customers to register their children with their local dealers. When the number of progeny reaches three, the dealer can then send out Saab-branded birth control solutions, for either the male or female, depending on customer preference.
This would save the customer from the embarrassment of having to get a minivan and it would keep customers in the Saab family.
I’ve even come up with a slogan for the campaign:
Regular ‘servicing’ is important. Just make sure you do it safely with your Saab dealer
How am I doing?
Like I said. Serious Saaby stuff is below.
My 2 cents on the PhoeniX and a visit to the Saab museum coming up tomorrow 🙂
Have a good one.
