Up for Auction we have a Beautiful 1988 Saab 900 Turbo Convertible. This car was a One Owner Car and was always garaged. It is loaded with all of the options that were available in 1988. Everything works as it should. Even the radio. we have all the original books and manuals even the Radio code card. This car is very clean. It was always Garaged and it shows! It runs and drives as you would expect a 48,000 mile car to run...Like New! The top goes up and down effortlessly. All the windows and electrical items work fine. The body has no paintwork that we could find. It is all Original. The tires are in great shape with lots of tread remaining. The original radio works as well as the factory equalizer. Even the Power Antenna Works! The leather seats are in Great shape with very little wear on them. It is truly a pleasure to drive. I have actually had this Beautiful convertible for almost a year and have enjoyed it. As a dealer I get many cars however I really loved this one so I put it in the garage where it belongs and used it on sunny days. It is now ready to go to its new owner who will care for as the Original owner did. Being a 25 year old car it is not new but in great shape. It does however have a few little things. The glove box door has a applique on it that is starting to peel on the edge. The material on the drivers door panel insert has become unglued in places in is a bit loose. The windshield has a tiny crack (less than 1 inch ) from a rock hitting it. The front cover on the ashtray has come off. Te top which I believe to be original has three little wear holes from going up and down. It is not ripped and is still in good condition but has these spots that are worn. ( See Pictures for all these issues). The speakers for the radio crackle a bit sometimes but the radio plays and sounds fine. There are a few small door dings and maybe some very small scratches that are not really noticeable. These is a small piece of molding on the left side front bumper extension that is missing. Thats about it. It is truly a time capsule in excellent condition! It even still has the Factory Bosch Fog lights under the front bumper!! If you are in the NY NJ Metro Area and would like to see and drive this Beautiful Saab Convertible feel free to call me at 646 302 9900. I will assist in Shipping or Pickup arrangements anyway I can. A $500.00 dollar deposit Via paypal is due within 24 hours of the auction end. If the winning bidder is planning to register the vehicle in New Jersey, NJ state sales must be collected. Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!

Last week, we tipped you off about Vampire Weekend and their new music video for the song Diane Young, a short film that consists entirely of setting fire to two perfectly nice-looking Saab 900 automobiles. The indie rock band's video - viewable by scrolling down - predictably triggered the internet ire of classic car enthusiasts - Saabophiles in particular - and word of the unrest eventually got back to the band itself.

According to music site Spinner (nb: owned by Autoblog parent AOL), the group was "stunned" at the backlash - enough that lead singer Ezra Koenig felt compelled to respond himself. According to Koenig, the band was under the impression that their record company was "looking to purchase the cheapest, oldest cars possible; they weren't trying to buy a beautiful perfect condition car." By way of apology, Koenig even goes so far as to note that bandmate Rostam Batmanglij is a keen fan of Saab.
Other reports have claimed that the cars may have been purchased under false pretenses, sold by owners who "wanted to see them go to a nice new home," but Koenig takes issue with that characterization, countering that he understood that the cars had substantial electrical problems.
National Electric Vehicle Sweden, the new owner of Saab, has good news for you if you happened to miss out on picking up a 9-3 before the company plummeted through bankruptcy. Automotive News Europe reports NEVS may offer a gasoline-powered 9-3 in 2013. That move would effectively step up the brand's re-launch plan by a full year. Originally, the company planned to introduce an electric vehicle in 2014, but NEVS is currently investigating ways to start production next summer using "a 9-3 with a traditional powertrain" in order to generate more cash for the electrification effort.

NEVS purchased Saab earlier this year with the intent of resurrecting the brand with a fully electric product portfolio. The new EVs would theoretically ride on the Saab Phoenix platform and be manufactured at the automaker's plant in Trollhattan, Sweden. The report of a resurrected gasoline model came courtesy of Mikael Oestlund, a company spokesperson familiar with the company's workings.
The brand formerly known as Saab is still intent on teaching The Little Engine That Could a few ticks about persistence. We say "formerly known" because it turns out that National Electric Vehicle Swedent (NEVS), the Sino-Japanese investment consortium that just bought the majority of Saab's assets, minus Saab Automobile Parts AB, may not actually own the rights to the Saab brand name. According to a report in Di.se via Saabs United, NEVS will need to negotiate with Scania and the Swedish aerospace and defense group, Saab AB, for the right to name its forthcoming electric car the Saab 9-3.
NEVS is hiring 200 engineers now to work on its electric car program, and reports are that it will hire more as it gets closer to the 2014 launch. It will be based on the current (read: ancient) 9-3, and we hope NEVS is succeeds in getting the naming rights, because the NEVS 9-3 just doesn't have the same ring. NEVS will likely target China as the model's main market.
However, it's rumors of their second negotiating ploy that we're really rooting for: to work with Mahinda & Mahindra, the Indian company once in the running for Saab's assets, develop a petrol-powered 9-3 on the next-generation Phoenix platform, based on Jason Castriota's design.
