Saab 900 Monte Carlo Yellow Production Numbers

This is another entry from the Inside Saab days, in a similar vein to my Saab 9-3 Viggen production numbers article. The data was lost when Inside Saab went down, but thankfully I’ve been able to retrieve it thanks largely to the Wayback Machine. Sadly, the Viggen and the MCY 900 Convertible are the only two models I got the chance to dig up numbers for before Inside Saab was ditched and Saab went under. I hope NEVS still has the old production database as it’s valuable historical information. —— After the success of the Viggen ‘by the numbers’ piece […]

Leaving Comments at Inside Saab

Just a little bit of housekeeping…… We like to chat here at Inside Saab but we know that sometimes, when people are confronted with a comments system that looks a little different, they might be inclined to shy away. Inside Saab uses a comments system called Disqus. It provides us with some good moderation tools and also lightens our server load (which is always nice).

The interview should be here. — My thanks to Johan Gabrielsson from SBS for the opportunity to talk about Saab and the role of that social media is playing within the company. —

The purpose of the site is primarily to provide the type of stories that only the company can tell, from the inside. We’ll be covering other stuff as well, of course, but the ‘inside angle’ is the one that only we can offer with […]

Welcome to Inside Saab

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Inside Saab – a new initiative from Saab Automobile to bring the company closer to its enthusiast community. My name is Steven Wade. Those who know me – and many who don’t – call me Swade. I’ll be your host on a journey into the heart of this wonderful carmaker. Some of you may be familiar with my previous work at a site called Saabs United, where a community gathered to support Saab as they were sold by General Motors to become an independent company back in 2009/10. Saabs United continues […]
