The mystery of the Saab headlamp switch
Here's reason #1 why Saabs are known to be "quirky"... The headlamp switch
is not typical. In this video I explain the "modes" that control the
sophisticated lighting system in a 2007 Saab 9-3. I demonstrate how to use
these functions: flash-to-pass, follow-me-home, and remote control.

Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the
kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and
vintage rally dude.
On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two
stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to
850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex
"Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs
added) fully ported intake and Exhaust
ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear

The Saab 9-5 was an executive car produced by the Swedish automobile maker
Saab. The first generation was introduced in 1997 as the replacement to the
Saab 9000 for the 1998 model year. At the time, the car represented a great
leap forward for Saab. In the United States, the 9-5 was introduced in the
spring of 1998, for the 1999 model year.
On September 15, 2009, the second generation was presented at the Frankfurt
Motor Show and production began in June 2010. It was the first Saab to
be launched under Spyker Cars' ownership, even though it was developed
almost completely under GM's ownership.
A next generation 9-5 built on the Global Epsilon platform was presented at
the Frankfurt International Auto Show in September 2009. The vehicle had
its North American debut in October 2009 at the South Florida Auto Show in
Miami. On November 24, 2009, the first pre-series Saab 9-5 of the new
generation rolled off the Trollhättan production line. On the Saab
International Site stated below, more pictures and information on the car
can be found.
With the announcement of the sale of Saab to Spyker on January 26, 2010, it
was confirmed that the new generation Saab 9-5 was already taken into
production at the Saab plant in Trollhättan. Full production began in
April 2010, with the cars appearing in dealerships on June 19. Saab
introduced a wagon variant of the new 9-5, dubbed "SportCombi," at the 2011
Geneva Motor Show. The Saab 9-5 Sedan 2.8V6 turbo has been named Car of the Year in Singapore
by Wheels Asia.
As Saab's business issues came to a head, production of 2011 9-5 models
essentially ended in March 2011, when the production line in Trollhättan
was stopped due to supply chain issues related to Saab's liquidity.
Although a substantial number of prototype and production pilot SportCombis
were produced, the variant did not enter serial production prior to Saab's
bankruptcy in December 2011. Because of this, this variant should be
considered "stillborn" unless production were to be resumed under different
n the US Saab 9-5's are as follows: turbo4, turbo4
Premium, turbo6 XWD and Aero. turbo4 models come with the turbocharged four-cylinder and are well-equipped
with features including power adjustable driver and passenger's seats,
leather upholstery, five-spoke alloy wheels, fog lamps and rain-sensing
wipers. The turbo4 Premium adds a
panoramic sunroof, headlamp washers, Saab parking assistance, keyless entry
and start, memory seats and 18-inch alloy wheels, while the turbo6 XWD is powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder Ecotec engine and
features an all-wheel-drive system. The top end Aero features 15-spoke
"Rotor" 18-inch alloy wheels, leather-trimmed sports seats, a multi-color
central information display, Bi-Xenon SmartBeam headlamps, dark
titanium-effect interior trim, aluminum sports pedals, a sport-tuned
suspension with real-time damping and unique Aero exterior elements.
UK equipment levels for the 2012 model year include the Vector SE and Aero
and both sedan and sportcombi are available. The previous base models,
Linear and Vector were replaced by the Vector SE model.
Whilst in other parts of the world less trim levels are available, in
Australia the Linear (base) is not part of the line up—only the Vector
and Aero trims are available.
Saab 95 production
Here is a view of several stations on the Saab 9-5 production line. The
9-5, like the 9-3 is a fantastic car! I love Saab alot and I hope you Saab
lovers out there enjoy this insight into what goes on in Trollhatten.
