Saab 9-3x Griffin

I received the following via email over the weekend: Would it be possible you to take some photos of new 9-3 Griffins especially 9-3Xs? Interior footage is the most interesting. It is hard to make decisions of ordering a new car if you don’t know how it looks like – dash, steering wheel, seats etc. Griffins can be a little hard to come by at the moment, but when I was at the Saab Museum yesterday photographing the Saab 9-6 prototype, they happened to have a Saab 9-3x Griffin on display there. Seeing that the enquiry sought some more details […]

Poll – What’s your favourite color Saab 9-3x?

I’d like to do a little experiment here. Yesterday I heard that one particular color in the Saab 9-3x range was the lowest selling color (there has to be one, of course) and thus was in danger of being cut to make way for a new color in the coming model year.
