It’s a little unusual for me to do a Saabosphere in the middle of the week, but there were a few good things out there worth sharing.
Via Saabworld, here’s a great video from Autoweek.nl. They travelled to Trollhattan recently to have a chat with some Saab employees, as well as some of the locals. Their interviews gauged feelings about the recently announced Memorandum of Understanding with Youngman and Pang Da. It should be noted that the interviews were conducted before General Motors made their preliminary announcement of not supporting the deal.
The video is mostly in Dutch, however the interviews are conducted in English.
Is it time for another poll?
Auto Express have also written a story about the Saab/Youngman/Pang Da deal, with their focus being on future Saab models.
They claim an image of the Saab 9-3 replacement vehicle in the story, however it should be noted that it’s not an official image and not one that we have any comment on. All images claimed or shown by magazines should be viewed as their own. We’ll show ours when we’re good and ready 🙂
The Snap Up a Saab competition continues……
Seriously, if you’re within reasonable distance of Saab of North Olmsted and you haven’t submitted an application for Week 4 of this competition, you’re missing out on what is possibly your best opportunity to win a new Saab of your choice.
All it will take is a week’s hard work, showing the car around and getting your friends and connections to share the vehicle as well.
Life with Saab has an interesting post about real-life fuel consumption figures in the Saab 9-5 TiD.
The author, Arild, has achieved fuel consumption figures under 5 liters per 100km. That’s 47mpg for you folks in the USA and 56mpg for folks in the UK.
That’s pretty darn good for a car with that much space. Sure beats the carrying capacity of a Yaris.
And last but not least…..
A study of the modern history of the Saab front grille. Do you have a favourite?
