Saab German dealer Tour 2011

Yesterday I received an invitation from my dealership. I’m invited to preview the 9-4x and the 9-5 SC on German soil and have some chat with him an other Saab owners.

He knows that I write at SU and that already know those cars, but he also knows that I could spend years simply sitting besides one of those cars 🙂

But yesterday evening Tom from that his is not only happening at my dealership, but it is a tour organized by Saab Germany and will visit many German dealerships.

The tour will last two weeks starting on the 24th of October in northern Germany and will go southwards. It seems that there will be 2 sets of cars as some of the dates do overlap.

The schedule is incomplete as some of the dealers haven#t confirmed the date yet.

  1. my opinion of this German dealer tour. The timing is to early because nobody knows if these models will be built. The situation in Sweden is unclear , no production , no spare parts from suppliers, no money etc. how can you sign a contract with all these unsolved problems ?

  2. what fun it seems that the different traders around on our planet believe in SAAB! And they German traders making such a fun thing’s exciting given that the German market is tough to do where it’s German brands such as applies.
    But we “SAAB” will show what great cars we do! And beat our former big brother of the fingers hehe.

    we came we saw we conquered
    (Veni Vidi Vici)

    • Actually, I think that it might be ‘venimus, vidimus, vicimus’ if you’re thinking ‘we’ rather than ‘I’, but I could be wrong.

      • Also, I’ve just looked it up and the Romans never did manage to conquer Germania, so it might be best not to hold one’s breath.

        • Thanks!!
          You can have right there!

          “Veni”, “vidi”, and “vici” are first person perfect forms of the three Latin verbs “venire”, “videre”, and “vincere”


  3. ahem….not bad the mistake in the header – it shows, that the author is very involved in the car-sector and probably in the powertrain…
    w´re not gearmans, we´re germans. so it´s germany and not gearmany….

    but – i like omerika also…

  4. veni, vidi, vinci with what ? no production since April, no delivering of suppliers, no money and no production date ?
    how you you be so optimistic ?

    • I do not know how much of the payment process is publically known.

      When a car is produced in THN, the dealer pays for it immediately.

      I doubt the same applies to those cars produced in Mexico, but I have no idea. Do you?

      Maybe the explanation is simple: The dealers in Germany think they have a 9-4x friendly market and wants to import from the US (where the 9-4x is currently in stock).

    • Glass half empty today Fuzzy 😉

      I guess it is fair to assume that most of the customers who ordered their cars in February and March this year have been following the development, wondering if they will actually get a car. Some of them probably had to cancel their orders, particularly if they had to return a lease car or simply needed another ride.

      For customers ordering today, the situation should be pretty clear, at least so far that it is utterly unclear. Nobody knows when production starts again and that is something a salesman needs to point out. But surely, most of the people ordering their car today are loyal saab customers. They are prepared to wait a few months. ANd hopefully it isn’t much more than that.

  5. Great; I will try to go there.

    Analysing the above list, the capital Berlin is well represented. The next three biggest towns, Hamburg, Munich and Cologne, however, only have one dealership exhibiting, and of the next 11 biggest towns, only six will get the exhibition.

    I can only hope that this does not reflect what is left over of the German dealerships. Of the four dealers in Munich, only one still exists (as a dealer, three of the other four former dealerships still do service, I believe), surviving on Subaru and Volvo, I guess. So, for Munich, this really reflects the state.

  6. Good luck ! This tour is a sort of positive thinking in these times, have a nice time, show the cars on the road and to the customers. Saab is still alive.

  7. I would love to see a successful Händlertour, but I fear that only a few customers will see the new modells. Saab Germany and most of the dealers are not giving any information about the event. Untill today morning there is no information on the Saab Germany Homepage, no advertisement, absolutly no information for the normal customer. The only information is coming from some few weblogs. Also only a few dealers invited some customer personally. So the normal customer doesnt know anything about the Händlertour. From my point of view there is lots of room for improvement.
