Almost exactly one year ago, the first public version of the Saab 9-5NG Production Report was released, sparking enormous intrest from Saab fans all around the world. Today, on “9/5 day”, we’re launching the next version with new images and many new details, including information about major options, production numbers by market, engine options and more! We also included some corrections based on the feedback we received, so keep this coming!
The waiting is finally over! Always wanted to know exactly how many production 9-4Xs were made? What engines and accessory options were planned? How many cars were made in what colour? Well… now you can find the answer to these questions (and more!) in the brand new Saab 9-4X Production Report. It has taken the team more than a year to do all the research and to put this extensive overview together. In conjunction with the launch of the report, we’re also expanding the scope of this site to include the 9-4X!
The third edition of the bi-annual “Pilots Wanted” event organized by Autohaus Lafrentz in collaboration with Orio and Saabblog.net was a great success. A record number of the latest generation Saabs participated with pilots from more than 10 different European countries. Apart from 6 Saab 9-5NG SportCombis and nearly 50 9-5NG Sedans, a whopping number of 9 Saab 9-4Xs made it to Kiel Germany last week.
Arguably one of the most beautiful Saab models ever made, the Saab 9-5 “New Generation” was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 2009 and during the two eventful years that followed, a total of 11,320 production 9-5s rolled off the assembly lines in Trollhättan, Sweden.
The interest for the 9-5NG has been growing steadily since and the cars are now rapidly becoming collector’s items. With the increasing popularity, the demand for detailed production data has also grown, but the demise of Saab Automobile AB unfortunately made access to reliable information quite difficult.
