Last Saab off the line will be offered at auction

2014 Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo was the last one off the assembly line in 2014, has been driven only 5 kilometers since

Although it’s 5 years old and has been put away since production, the last 2014 Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo sedan off the assembly line in Trollhattan, Sweden, is being displayed this weekend at the Saab Car Museum Festival and will be up for auction later this year, NEVS announced.

Although headquartered in Sweden, where it has approximately 700 employees, New Energy Passenger Vehicle Project is the Chinese company that acquired the assets of Saab Automobile AB in 2012. It opened an assembly plant in Tiajin, China, in 2018, has a plant under construction in Shanghai and has a third facility under construction in Guangzhou. 

This is one of those ‘last batch’ of Saabs. The car headed for auction is painted silver

NEVS also owes 20 percent of Swedish sports car producer Koenigsegg.

Traditional production at Trollhattan ended in 2011 but in 2013, NEVS re-launched the plant, although only long enough to produce 420 vehicles.

The last car off the line is painted silver and its odometer shows 5 kilometers.

“Don’t miss this opportunity to own this brand-new Saab – the very last of its breed,” the company said in its news release. “Auctioneer, starting price and terms of sale will be published at a later date.”

    I owned a ’99 9-5 SE wagon, an ’01 9-5 Aero sedan and a ’03 9-5 2.3 sedan. Rockets on rails, quirky designs, sports car handling, innovative options and killed when associated with GM.

    The 9-3 is too small for me but someone is going to get a thrill ride.

      I owned the 900 Turbo with no air in Pa. great in the snow, moved to S. Fla. found out that the Car had to go. Went for a test drive in 1972 in a brand new Saab Turbo and the Salesman Flipped the Car and we were 19 and we laughed. The worst thing that happened was one of buddy lost his glasses on impact. Things were different back then. Today there would have been 3 Lawsuits.

    GM utterly gutted SAAB, took the best, and wasted the rest; I will never forgive them.
    As my way of saying thankyou, I will also NEVER Buy a New gm product, EVER.
    Now we are stuck with really crappy Buick turdmobiles because Buick sells well to Chinese businessmen who think Buick is a luxury brand. And now SAAB is dead.
