There’s something to owning the last-ever Saab.
Remember Saab? The Swedish car company faded away in 2011 as it halted production. However, there are still near-mint examples kicking around. NEVS, the company that relaunched production in 2013, is auctioning off a 2014 Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan Turbo with just 3 miles on the clock.
The company said in its statement, “The final batch of Saab’s were manufactured in the original factory with original parts sourced from around 400 suppliers. During 2013-2014 only 420 cars were made — the last ever to roll off the assembly line in Trollhättan.” NEVS will display this particular Saab 9-3 this weekend during the Saab Car Museum festival before heading to auction later this year.
Now, those who remember the last Saabs will no that it’s not a major performance car. In fact, the last 9-3 had a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making 217 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. That engine sends power to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. That said, it is the last-ever Saab, so that ought to add some collector value.
For now, we will have to wait and see more details on the NEVS auction. Stay tuned for more updates!
