Saab 9-5 SportCombi 2012 Directory

During the Saab Automobile AB era, thirteen 9-5NG SportCombis were produced on the regular production line in Trollhättan, Sweden, and another twenty in the Saab pre-production workshop called “Frickeboa”. In addition to these 33, a yet unknown -limited- number of test cars were also made in the GM facilities in Rüsselsheim, Germany. There are records of at least 35 SportCombis that were manufactured, but sadly only 27 are believed to still exist.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: How do you read the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) numbers?
    A: You can find more details on this subject here.
  • Q: How come the VIN numbers listed aren’t all sequential?
    A: In some cases VIN numbers were skipped during the production process. This was especially true for the cars made at Frickeboa.
  • Q: What is “KVD obj no”?
    A: This is the lot number used by auction house KVD at the auction for the SAAB Automobile AB bankruptcy estate. Most of the SportCombis listed here were in fact sold during one of the three auctions held by KVD in 2012 and 2013. Some of the cars have since changed owners again.
  • Q: If around 35 SportCombis were made and only 27 cars are still around, what happened to the other 8?
    A: The missing cars were used in several durability and crash tests, or have been scrapped for other reasons.
  • Q: Is there a chance that the Saab 9-5NG will be produced again in the future?
    A: This is highly unlikely. GM withdrew the IP rights for this model when Saab Automobile AB went bankrupt on 19 December 2011. In conjunction with the bankruptcy, many of the required tools were scrapped by GM.
    Q: I’ve heard that someone built their own 9-5NG SportCombi out of a 9-5NG Sedan. Is this true?
    A: Yes! A small team of Swedish Saab enthusiasts did just that. You can read more about it here.
