Wellcome to the Saabfestival 2015. The Saabcommunity mourns the loss of Erik Carlsson “on the roof” that left us a couple of days ago and a a Saabfestival without him feels very strange. On the other hand, he never wanted us to postpone the festival, we will take the opportunity to celebrate what he did for Saab and the Saabenthusiasts around the world. We are looking forward to hear your story about him and especially Sunday will be a tribute to him, inside and around the museum on the festival.
The theme ”It´s my Saab” remains and the graphic is based around the classic Saab Turbo steering wheel introduced in 1977. That really catches what we all know. The pleasure of driving your Saab. To the Saab Festival.
An added touch will be that the Saab 9000 celebrates 30 years on the market.
The detailed programme is now available further down on this page for downloading!
