Press and 3 800 Saab employees were shown the new cars. There was also a speech by Saabs vd Jan Åke Jonsson and Spykers Victor Muller.

5 years ago was a very exciting and important year for Saab. It was now it would be proved if Saab has come to stay or not. Now we know unfortunately how it went and the new Saab 9-5 Sportcombi was to be salvaged for scrap metal and one preserved for Saab Museum.

However, the creditors were standing in line to get their money back so everything that could be sold was to be auctioned off. That also included the test cars such as 9-5 Sportcombi.

The Swedish Transport Agency had already decided from the beginning that they were only test cars and would not be allowed to be registered legally and therefore not be driven on public roads. KVD had the great “honor” of holding in some of the auctions all sold prices are listed in the 9-5 Sportcombi directory, http://9-5sc2012.com/saab-9-5-sportcombi-2012-directory/.

It was really time to make a design update of this page so here it is! There are not so many new functions except there is a small shop with some rare items and also the instagram pictures can be viewed here also. Have also created a new Youtube account with some videos that really should be preserved. Some of the old pages have been removed to reorganize and also added pdf files to the resources page where you can find a lot of information.

I would like to thank everyone who have sent in pictures from their sportcombi spotting! Please continue to do so. And also to the owners of this truly unique car who have contributed with pictures and information. Thank you for sharing! Please feel free to contact us at any time: info@9-5sc2012.com /Marcus.
