If you’re a Saab enthusiast, this might just be the opportunity of a lifetime. One of the last Saab 9-3 Convertibles ever manufactured in the factory in Trollhättan is now up for sale, and it’s in pristine condition with only 384 miles on the odometer after 13 years of careful ownership. This Saab is currently listed on Bring a Trailer with a current bid of $30,000, but it’s expected to fetch a much higher price, potentially making it the most expensive 9-3 ever sold. There are currently 9 bids, and the auction expires tomorrow.

Saab has a storied history of producing iconic cars known for their unique design and performance, and the 9-3 Convertible is no exception. In the last few years before the company’s unfortunate bankruptcy, only a limited number of 9-3 Convertibles were manufactured in Trollhättan, Sweden, making them rare and highly sought-after by collectors. Prior to that, the 9-3 Convertible was produced at Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. However, Saab made the decision to bring production back to Sweden for the final years of the model’s production.

The front bucket seats and rear bench are trimmed in Parchment leather and are complemented by a color-coordinated lower dashboard and door panels.

The Saab 9-3 Convertible currently on sale is finished in a stunning Nocturne Blue Metallic exterior color, paired with a luxurious Parchment leather interior. The paintwork is flawless, with no scratches or blemishes, and the underside of the car gives the impression that it has never been driven. The color combination of Nocturne Blue Metallic and Parchment leather is sure to tug at the heartstrings of Saab enthusiasts, evoking a sense of nostalgia for the brand’s timeless design.

Under the hood, this 2010 Saab 9-3 Convertible is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four engine that produces 210 horsepower, mated to a five-speed automatic transaxle. While the performance may not be groundbreaking by today’s standards, with 13 years having passed since its manufacture, the 9-3 Convertible still offers a spirited driving experience. The current bid on Bring a Trailer is already at $30,000, and all signs point to this Saab becoming the most expensive 9-3 ever sold at auction.

The Saab Convertible has a rich history, with its roots tracing back to a concept car that was first unveiled in 1983, exactly 40 years ago. Regular production of the Saab Convertible began in 1986 at Valmet in Nystad, Finland, and later moved to Magna Steyr in Austria. The final two model years were assembled at the Trollhättan factory in Sweden, making this particular Saab 9-3 Convertible even more special as one of the last few to come out of the factory before production ceased.
