Saab got a very brief mention in a recent edition of Auto Motor & Sport.
It was brief, but very interesting….
Opel Vectra will also have 4×4 in the next generation that goes in production in 2008. For the present model will the investment is too high. *But the platform-similar Saab 9-3 will have it from 2008, because it will be in production for another three years.*
First, more confirmation of the AWD 9-3 (though we were all 99.9% on that anyway).
Second, the three-year cycle for the model. I’m just hoping this doesn’t mean that Epsilon II, the base for the next 9-3 and supposedly the next 9-5 as well, won’t be this far away.
Thanks to Thomas.
Despite the scare stories I’ve heard, Koni front shocks are on the way. It was a price vs risk decision, which I’m hoping is going to work out OK.
Christer Fuglesang recently became Sweden’s first man in space.
Given that he rides in a Saab when he’s not riding in a space shuttle, Saab Sweden thought it appropriate to cash in and put this in the local newspapers. Click to enlarge.
From Mats: In the local paper this morning Saab had an add congratulating Fuglesang to his achievements in space and made a small note of that he, when on earth drive a vehicle that they hope offer a similar sort of thrill….or something like that…it was early and I was tired.
Tired or not, a great job. Thanks for the scan.
