Saab filed for bankruptcy almost a year ago but the story is far from over. ¬†The receivers that were put in charge of liquidating the automaker's estate have just listed 68 new or lightly used 2012 Saabs for sale on a Swedish auction site called KVD.
The lot consists of several 9-3 wagons and convertibles, a couple of 9-4x SUVs, a lone 9-7x and several 2012 9-5 sedans, including a handful of 300-horsepower Turbo6 models. ¬†Both right- and left-hand drive models are being sold off.
Surprisingly, the auction also includes a batch of 18 9-5 SportCombis, the station wagon variant of the car which never made it to regular production due to Saab's financial woes. ¬†About 30 SportCombis were built before the company shut its doors last December.
Enthusiast site SaabsUnited reports that the 9-5 SportCombis cannot be registered in Sweden because they were never crash tested by the government. ¬†In spite of what amounts to a fairly major setback, Saab aficionados will likely snatch up the wagons and hang on to them as a rare piece of Saab history.
KVD will organize a private tour of the cars that are earmarked for the auction block on December 8th and 9th. ¬†The auction is scheduled to end on December¬†16th.
