Saab 9-5 Sportcombi 2012

Post by AdamYip » Tue Dec 15, 2015 4:10 am

I've always loved Saab's and was sad to see it went out of business a few years ago. The last 9-5 Sportcombi was a car that I was interested in buying but never went into mass production. I guess I can only fulfill that dream in 1/43.

Ironically that would probably have succeeded as a 1:1. Nice rendering in 1:43 Adam. In our locality I occasionally see one of the very rare saloons which were sold just before the company's demise. We have an Independent ex-Saab Servicing workshop on a local industrial estate which probably explains the occasional sightings. I wonder how the owner will cope with finding spares for it a few years down the line.

I know that a Chinese company bought up the presses and heavy machinery which was in the factory at closure and vaguely recall a question mark over whether they would ever be able to resurrect the Saab name on cars. It'll probably be or has been prevented because of the aircraft connection.

Very nice car and model, I'm also sad to see Saab disappearing from the car market.
