New 9-5s in the wild?

Has anyone seen a new 9-5 in the wild? I have yet to see a single one.

Don't say yes if you own one yourself, you drove by the dealer, your parents bought one, you test drove one, you worked on one, et al. That doesn't count. I'm looking for genuine "sightings".

Well hopefully we see more, apparently Saab has been lazy at paying suppliers, production was halted yesterday for a few hours yesterday because of lack of parts. The russian dude has applied to become a shareholder or whatever. As long as they make it to the new 9-3, things should get better

I think the point of seeing one "in the wild" is that those are people who actually bought one. 1000 people could see one in a dealership, but that means nothing unless somebody bought it.

So it's sort of like an unofficial sales metric. Asking us all how many we've seen driving around is sort of like a barometer for how many are getting purchased.



And to answer your question, no I have not seen a single one in the greater Seattle area.

Calling us all douchebags isn't helping you. Maybe you should try being less legit and quit (I know, I'm hilarious*) before you dig a hole for yourself. Also in Castor Troys defense he offered that up in addition to his other comment. Although that is kinda funny.

Saw a white Aero in Louisville a couple weeks ago. It had standard KY plates on it so it wasn't on a test drive or anything. It was sitting in front of some uppity-up looking clothing store in a wealthy part of town. Looked good too. Your eyes went straight to it.

I've seen a few (6?) in the wild here, but there is a dealer in town so there is a possibility that some/most of them were being test driven.
