I've seen 3 in the U.S., two in MN and one in LA.

They are EVERYWHERE here in Sweden right now, I rode in a taxi-duty NG9-5 diesel 6MT on Tuesday leaving the factory in Trollhättan. Probably seen as many as I've seen the older gen 9-5's (and those are everywhere too).

I didn't even bother trying to take photos. They seem to like them here - most of them have steel wheels for winter too, look pretty cool.

Considering our economy is terrible and so many people bashed Saab in the last few years, its no surprise. I also have not seen any AWD Saabs yet. Its hard to compete with crap cars like the Korean car market. I know so many people who use to buy nice, high end cars, today they are buying Korean crap and driving around with big ass frowns on their faces Not to ramble this in another direction, but has anyone driven or been a passenger in a Honda or Toyota Hybrid ? Wow that is the most annoying ride ever ! The car lurches and vibrates as it charges the battery...no thank you !

Yeah that could play a role, however the Koreans are stepping it up, who knows how they will hold up long term, but initial quality is good, and that's what most consumers look at.

Wikipedia says these started appearing at dealers in June of last year. Almost 12 months and I have yet to see one off dealer soil in the largest car market in the US. Sad.

Considering the one SAAB dealership in AK is gone, I'm not surprised I haven't seen one yet.

I've seen a couple of them in Ohio that didn't look to be on dealer plates or anything.

I still haven't been able to check one out in person, though.

i saw another spyker today, too. but nobody's keeping score on that (3 so far on the road).
so far this month i've seen more spykers, more bugattis, more 458's, more rapides, than the saab.
go team!

Saabs are more popular in the north-east from what i've seen. Another one of our local club members just picked one up. Still not a huge amount but there are 4 or 5 locally in the central PA region that i have seen.
