World’s Last Brand New Saab Is A 9-3 Wagon Selling For €31,000

Who said you can’t buy a brand new Saab anymore? A dealership in Italy is offering a 9-3 wagon that is most likely the world’s last new Saab.

Pordenone-based “Zanetti Omero & C” is a former Saab dealer that has one barely used 9-3 Sportwagon on its lot. The dealership bought the 9-3 just before Saab went bust with the intention of reselling it. However, the car never found an owner. The company doesn’t say when the Saab was built.

However, we assume it’s was made in 2011, the year the Trollhättan plant stopped production as the company declared bankruptcy.

The car only has 90 kilometers (56 miles) on the odometer and probably retains the new car smell despite having spent about seven years in the showroom. One of the photos even shows the (presumably) original plastic foil covering the front passenger footwells.

The metallic black Saab 9-3 Sportwagon is a well-equipped Vector trim level, with highlights including automatic climate control, partial leather seats, parking sensors, cruise control, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, heated windshield, alloy wheels, and more.

The engine is a 1.9-liter TTiD4 turbodiesel making 130 horsepower (131 PS). It’s linked to a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the front wheels. Pretty basic stuff, but for 2011 it was one of the “cleanest” cars in its class. Thanks to a diesel particulate filter, it was Euro 5-compliant and averaged 119 g/km CO2.

We’ve left the most disturbing piece of information at the end. You’ve guessed it, it’s the price. The car is listed for a whopping €31,000, albeit negotiable sum. That’s about $35,350 for a car built in 2011. The only way one could justify spending that much on a Saab would be to keep it in a garage, never drive it and hopefully, sell it for profit in a few years.
