As you may know, Saab USA are offering free Aero Academy driving courses to the first 100 Turbo-X customers in the US.
I’m reliably told that as of December 22, there were 73 slots left out of 100.
So is that reflecting slower sales of the car, or a slow uptake of the Aero Academy course, which I’m told is well-worth the price of an airfare to Atlanta?
Korean design has featured here before.
This isn’t about a GM-run design show, but it features some Saab stuff nonetheless. This is from a design school in Korea and some of the students chose to re-interpret vehicles from various marques. Below is one particular designer’s take on the Saab Aero X.
Wulf tells me that Dutch Saabers can pick up a Winter Pack on their new Saab 9-3 convertibles.
This is the pic I should show you:
With the winter pack, you get a set of four 16″ alloy wheels with snow tires and a Smart Slot ice scraper for free. These are normally valued at €1,925. It’s an extra €400 if you want to upgrade to 17″ wheels (for the 2.8T and TTiD Aero, for example). The offer closes January 31st.
Nice car. I don’t think the lady comes with the winter pack, though. Both images are part of the PDF flyer for the pack, available here (Right-click, Save As….and it’s in Dutch)
And finally……..parking in St Petersburg
