SOTW Classic Convertible from New Zealand

This weeks SOTW comes from a very sunny New Zealand.

Hi Robin

The garage is now full of Saabs but I couldn’t resist buying this 1989 900 T Cabriolet.   It had been stored for the last few years and was in a museum before then.   25 years old and only 43,000 miles.  When we cleaned up the car the paintwork came up like new.    Hans my mechanic sorted out the transmission and a few other things.   It’s the full pressure turbo.  Amazing that a car this old handles so well.   We plan look after this car carefully for many years to come.

New Saabs on their way to the Netherlands

The 6 new Saab 9-3 Aero’s ordered by Saab dealers in the Netherlands previously reported about here on SaabsUnited, are on their way to the dealers.

At the moment their is still a small stock of new Saabs at the factory in Trollhattan, so for the moment their are still new Saabs available when more customers are interested. Ruud Blokhuis from Saab Arnhem, Saab Utrecht and Saab Apeldoorn is delighted and honoured that he will receive new Saabs again after three years. This week, Francois Driessen from Driessen Autogroep, who ordered the new Saabs together with Blokhuis, will personally attend to the National Autoshow of BNR in the Netherlands with a new Saab 9-3 Aero.

These entrepreneurial actions strongly contribute to the Saab experience in the Netherlands, but also among the Saab community internationally, while we are awaiting more news about the future developments of NEVS.

Reduction of workers at Saab Cars in Trollhättan

This news does not come as a surprise knowing the current financial trouble the company is in. Last week the contracts with 100 consultants ended and today 72 workers with limited contracts where given notice that the contracts will not be prolonged. 53 blue-collar and 19 white-collar works will end their work with Saab cars this summer. The consultants are all part of the technological development. This is a dangerous path to go since what Saab needs now is getting the Phoenix platform up and running. The future of the company. Our source on the reduction of works is from Mikael Östlund, Communications manager at Saab Cars.
