The first Saab Convertible to be built in Sweden rolled off the line at Saab Automobile's production facility in Trollhättan. All previous Saab Convertibles have been built outside of Sweden, first at Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, Finland and latterly at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria. During 2009, the decision was made to concentrate all Saab car production in Sweden and as a result the Saab Convertible is now being built alongside the current 9-3 and 9-5.

The number of nelary 11000 orders waiting to be built is not taking into account Canada and some other markets that do not have order guides and pricing for the 2012 models as of yet. The number of nelary 11000 orders could easily be 12000 by the time production starts and that is good news for Saab and good news for the public as that through all of this, dealers are still ordering cars and with the 9-4X hitting dealer lots now in the US, I can see even more orders rolling in. Production not starting on the 9th to me is not a huge surprise because of the summer holiday and the need to ramp up parts production from suppliers. Keep up the great work Swade and thanks for keeping us informed.
