Could this be the northernmost Saab ….. (cue Clarkson voice) ….. in the world?
Arjan Bronkhorst is a professional photographer – and a Saab fan – so when he spotted an early model Saab 900 abandoned in Spitsbergen he just had to get a shot of it.

If you’re like me, you might be asking “Where the heck is Spitsbergen?” Well, if you thought Sweden was pretty far north, think again…..
Forgive me, but I’m doing my work from Wikipedia here. Spitsbergen is part of Norway and lies at 78° north. The Saab might be abandoned by virtue of the fact the place (apparently) has no roads, with snowmobiles, boats and aircraft being used to ferry people around. The island is around 39,000 sq km and is home to a few small permanent communities and a population of polar bears and reindeer.
78° north. That’s why I’m wondering if this could be the northernmost Saab in existence. I guess there could be another Saab further north on the island itself, or something in northern Greenland.
For mine, though, that’s the most extreme Saab graveyard I’ve heard about. My thanks to Arjan for capturing the serenity in pixels and allowing me to share it on site.
