Get yourself a piece of automobile history with the very last Saab to leave the factory. The piece of automobile history we spoke of is a Saab 9-3 MY14 Silver 2.0T Automatic, one of the 420 Saab 9-3Aeros to roll off the production line in a relaunched operation by Saab new owner, electric car maker NEVS (National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB).
The production was halted back in 2011. The car, which has around 40 miles (64 kilometers) on the odometer, was side aside from the production line to undergo a development test that never materialized. Thereafter, it was designated a reference car.
It was kept at NEVS factory after the production stopped in case petrol car production did resume. But it didn’t, obviously. While the rest of the Saab 9-3 were sold, this particular example remained untouched for almost 5 years and fast forward to today, it is up for grab for anyone who is interested and have the money to drop.
The 1994 Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo4 (Lot Number 12306), dubbed the “last new Saab”, will go under the hammer this month in an auction by Bilweb Auctions. This new old vehicle is unused, features five seats in beige leather with dark details, a “diamond silver” paint job, and it is powered by a 2L Turbo4 unit that puts out 220 ponies, paired to an automatic gearbox.
It is expected to yield between 350,000 SEK and 450,000 SEK (about US$36,400-46,700). If you keen to own the last Saab to leave the production plant in Stallbacka, Trollhättan, Sweden, then you won’t want to miss this golden opportunity to do so.
The car was, btw, registered only in March this year (2019). So, yeah, it is practically a new car. Keep going for a walk around video.
