Unfortunately my dodgy Swedish translator isn’t available right now, but thanks to Mats, here’s a link from Swedish paper TTELA that appears to give a hint that the Biopower engine is on the way for the 9-3. This, of course, would follow on from the success that Saab have had in Sweden with the 9-5 Biopower model, which is killing them in the e85 market there.
I did hear a month or two ago from a Djup Strupe that the 2.3 Biopower engine was sighted on the lines in Trollhattan so it seems that the expansion of the Biopower line is well and truly underway.
If any of you Swedish speakers are still awake, a quick translation in comments of the article linked above will find its way onto the front page here very quickly.
My copy of Lance Cole’s 99 & 900 book finally arrived in the post today!! Woohoo. I now have 3 books by Anders Tunberg and this one all waiting to be consumed.
Now all I need is the time.
I may as well open this up here and see if I can get some ideas from Saabisti worldwide. I’ve just recently taken the position of Chairman of the Tasmanian branch of the Saab Car Club of Australia. Along with a very capable committee group, I need to come up with some ideas for club activities etc.
Any suggestions and thoughts on your favourite car club activities from the past would be welcome and appreciated. We have a very good relationship with our local dealership, so anything that you’ve done with your Saab dealer would also be great.
Aussie readers, or anyone really, might be interested in taking a peek at a new automotive blog, Rear View. It’s being run by “the real Rowen Atkinson”, who’s a blogging mate of mine from the old days when I ran a non-car blog called Red Interior.
My NBA picks for today: Phoenix to close out the Clips and the Mavs to win the Texas showdown. Geez, I wish I lived in the US so I could watch these unfold.
