    Swade,
    Sure you are a Sonett man?
    I was thinking I was. Bought #376 from the US.
    Had it for some years. Never liked it sold it and bought a 9-3 NG Convertible. So much more joy and bliss! Sonetts are museum pieces not fun to ride or handle.

    Remember a conversation I had with late Saab head engineer Gunnar Ljungström. He was driving the Ursaab and I asked him when coming out of the car what he felt driving the old machine.
    Gunnar was very disappointed almost angry to the point that he said the design was a total disaster.
    ”- It was Sixtens Sasons fault he had got the idea that the…[Läs mer]

    Saabs get just more stable on the road the faster they go.
    My 300+ bhp 2002 9-5 with Hirsch bits plus suspension is like an iron at top speed 258 km/h
    The Hirsch TurboX is not as stable in those speeds. Not bad but the 9-5 feels better.
    —-
    Would be nice if GM would allow Saab to make a 480 bhp that maybe could reach 300 km/h….. Dreams!!!

    Interesting that Saab gets this ”new” technology. I worked with GPS / TMC based systems 15 years ago with ovloV and Swedish DOT. Funny to hear some of the ideas in the YouTube clip with Chris, I presented that stuff last millenium to McDonalds, Statoil etc. and risk-capitalist here in Sweden, but we where out there way before the market had…[Läs mer]

    How accurate is the HUD speedo.
    Would be nice to know what a standalone GPS would have said.
    Has Hirsch programmed a cut off speed limit.
    Think that my Hirsch TurboX has a 260 km/h limit.

    Friend at work told me about a swedish new concept of integrating batteries in the chassis frame. Using the strength charactetistics of the elements of the battery to make the chassis.
    Sounds like a very smart idea.

    Any given day I would agree 100% with You. Green is better. BUT now Saab is on a track to revitalize the brand and red is emotions and passion. So why not GO 4 it!
    Bring on more colors both in the interior and exterior. Warm red glow is not that bad.

    New iduA A6 has an exterior look that is not in anyway better than Saab 9-5. In my eyes Saab has the advantage here unique design while the A6 looks very averege.

    Application ROCKS!
    Just bring on more of the aerospace heritage. We love it. Wings and active aerodynamics etc.
    I am so happy Saab had the guts to bring on Jason C on the ship ad steer it into a truly dynamic future. Just hope that sales will allow the more dramatic design elements.
    Hope Saab dares to be a unique boutique brand, like nobody…[Läs mer]

    Super great achievement making the 9-3 SC environnental Below 120gram.
    Good job all engineers in Trollhättan.

    Great speech from VM. ”-What is better than a 99 Turbo!” It will be really exciting to see the prototype model next week. Sounds like the car will have a lot of ”old” 99 Turbo CombiCoupe genetics. That would be just perfect.

    Guess it is 50% off this weekend in the UK. Why not the whole world?

    Seams like the ”celebrations” at least not in Sweden has been poorly organized. Some dealers have nothing going on. Guess many dealers now are selling other brands besides SAAB. Could they have lost focus??? It is understandable since they like to sell cars and make their…[Läs mer]

    Car connection, what a big bag of crap. Flex is at par with Porsche 997 convertible. The rear seat is OK for two ladies. Gearbox is OK as well.

    Lets hope Gilberts son gets the chance to sit in the 9-4x…….
    Remember a car show in Stockholm when ovloV launched the V70R odd light blue/green with tan leather interior. People where NOT allowed to sit in the car. A friend of mine who had fought to buy a Hirsch 305 bhp 9-5* and failed, told the ovloV people that he WAS buying this car, they…[Läs mer]

    It was a strange day. But I carried on the work for the rally team. I delivered two gearboxes to be renovated and given limited slip differentials. Then every other minute checking SU on the iPhone.
    But luckliy all our combined efforts on a global scale paid off. Saab was saved by convoys and activities that has gone to the history of automotive…[Läs mer]
