Saab 9-5ng

For the third time in a row, last weekend, the biggest special meeting of Saab enthusiasts was held in the German city of Kiel – Under the motto “Pilots wanted 2018“.

Thanks to the car dealership Autohaus Lafrentz and in cooperation with the Saabblog team, so far the largest gathering of the owner of the Saab 9-5 NG and Saab 9-4x cars has been organized in Kiel. As in previous years, the gathering was divided into two interesting days and took the participants through Kiel and the maritime surrounding area.

As always, participation was free of charge, and guests were able to enjoyin an exciting program with several special features. For the First time, the owners of the 9-4x model came to the gathering – past two meets were only for NG9-5 (2014, 2016). So this year a record was achieved – there were as many as 9 “pieces” of the Saab 9-4x.

In addition to this, there were several exclusives in the meeting, such as for example :

  • Saab 9-5 NG Merlot Red (OG9-5 color)
  • Saab 9-5 NG Lightning Blue (OG9-3 Viggen color)

And that’s not all, another interesting thing was the sale of one Fjord Blue Saab 9-5 Sportcombi to new owner in Sweden.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
