    New 9-4X Production Totals

    I'd read previously seen in Wikipedia - Saab 9-4X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - there were 457 made. Now, FWIW, the June issue of Motor Trend states:

    GM built a total of 738 Saab 9-4X sport/utilities for Swedish Automobiles NV before SANV filed for bankruptcy. That makes the 9-4X even more rare than the Pontiac Solstice coupe, of which 1152 production models were built before GM closed the brand.

    457 is also the number reported by Automotive News earlier. "Under 500" was the number of 9-4X shipped out to dealers.
    The rarest new vehicle in the world? The Saab 9-4X

    Not sure if SCNA released any official numbers.

    I believe mine is solid black. At least its black and I can not see any metallic flakes. I'll have to look and see if I still have the window sticker to see how its listed (I might have lost the sticker in the move)

    The official names are Birch White, Diamond Silver, Moorland Bronze and Zodiac Black. There were also some pre-production colors like Chili Red (not sure if that was the official name), Ice Pearl and Atlantic Blue but only one or a few were made in those colors. I think there was only one black color and it wasn't metallic.

    There were two different blacks on the 9-4x. I got the Zodiac Black which has the metallic flecks, but compared it to a regular black at the dealer -- I liked the standard black paint better, but didn't like the package of options so that's how I ended up with the metallic. I have seen both.

    I second this ... two different blacks. I, on the other hand, prefer the Zodiak Black Metallic, but both are very nice. We have Moreland Bronze though, and love it.

    Are there any 9-4X left unsold?

    Saab of Bellevue used to have a silver 9-4X but they sold it a few months ago. Looking at the dealers on the west coast, none are listed on the online inventories of the dealer websites.

    It seems like quite a few dealers no longer have any Saabs. One dealer has 4 9-3's and 2 9-5's which seems accurate compared to what I saw. Another dealer has 2 9-3's, one of them a Sport Combi. Yet another has 2 9-3's and another has 1 9-3 and 8 9-5's. Overall, there might be 18 new Saabs located in the 5 states bordering the Pacific (CA, OR, WA, HI, with no dealer anymore in AK).

    ----
    In January, Saab of Bellevue listed 6 new Saabs in their inventory. Now (Feburary 5th), the page has been updated and lists a mere 1 9-3 and 2 9-5's. I wonder when the last new Saab in the U.S. will be sold? Late 2013?
