    Ah, it was nice to get sentimental over the weekend, wasn’t it. News came out a few days ago that General Motors had lodged a design patent on the defunct Saab 9-6x, which was to be a Saab SUV built on the same architecture as the Subaru Tribeca. It didn’t happen, of course, because GM sold...

    I’ve got two polls here for you today. First of all….. The other day I was driving along and in the lane next to me, and about two cars ahead, was a black Saab 9-3. It was a 2008 model and for the very first time, I looked at the tail lamps and my initial thought was something other than...

    As happens every four years now that I’m all grown up, I’m completely fascinated and entralled by the US election. I’ve mentioned it once here at TS already and the comments section nuked itself within about an hour, so comments are closed on this one. This blog is about Saabs, not politics...

    Earlier today, I posted on a Channel4 report about the Saab 9-5. They’re claiming that the next generation Saab 9-5 will get a turbocharged 1.6 litre engine for its base model. They state that the info has come from a Saab source, but I’m remaining cautious until I can confirm the info for...

    There were a couple of interesting outcomes from the Saab 900 poll today. For me as a blogger, the fact that there were only 100 respondents (less than third of the usual amount) was interesting, but that’s a side issue. The main outcome was that 50% of respondents have either never owned or...

    My Saab 900 had been with my mechanic for just over a week prior to me picking it up this aftenoon. He was driving it from time to time to try and re-create and then trace the intermittent problem I’ve been having with it. The problem still hasn’t been identified, but getting the car back...

    I’ve been so immersed in Saab ownership in the last 5 or so years that I took for granted what a great base these cars are as performance machines. Tomorrow morning I’m going to chip my Alfa. In doing so I’ll gain around 11hp and 15Nm. When I was looking at a chip tune for my Viggen, the...

    It’s not final yet, and I don’t think it will be for a while, but the latest news snippet on the future of the Saab 9-3 says that it will be made in Russelsheim, and that’s despite it being made on a platform that would be suited to build in Trollhattan. If that happens, then we’d have a 9-5...

    Two concepts in just over two months. Two interiors. Both fairly different. Which one do you like and which one do you hope to see in future Saabs? Click on any of these photos to enlarge. First, the 9-4x interior: And then we have the 9-X BioHybrid interior: —— So...

    It’s time to gauge some public feeling on one of the more controversial parts of the Saab 9-X BioHybrid: the rear. The long roof makes for a shooting brake style rear end. It allows for a practical storage area at the back with a full load height at the rear door, and it has certain...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the Saab badging of the future: In discussions with the Saab Brand Center’s Gunilla Gustavs at the Detroit Auto Show today, I asked if the badging we saw on the Saab 9-4x concept is representative of the badging we’ll see on Saabs in the future. Gunilla...

    Relax, just testing out a new polling system here….. Is this poll interesting? Yeah, polls about nothing are great!! No, needs a topic, dude. What poll? View Results —— Did it work? If so, you should...

    There's been a little bloodletting in comments about the revelation that OnStar will be standard in the 2008 Saab 9-3. So what's the problem? Well, if you have OnStar, apparently you can't get Bluetooth. I'm unsure as to whether it's a technical thing or a contractual thing, but there's...

    Time to get definitive. As you may know this month is dedicated to the love of the Saab 900 of 1994-1997 and the Saab 9-3 of 1998-2002. I've had a question raised as to what is the correct description for the 900 in this instance. The common variants seem to be: "GM900" - i.e. the 900...
