    Question Accounting for the Rarety of 9-4x

    I have discovered via http://www.autonews.com/assets/PDF/CA75069812.PDF that there were only 573 9-4X made.
    .... or a later report that only 497 were made: http://www.autonews.com/assets/PDF/CA768721216.PDF
    What I'd like to determine is the following...
    Number of each Sub-model:
    3.0i
    3.0i XWD
    3.0i Premium
    3.0i Premium XWD
    Aero

    In addition, it would be intriguing to find out how many are in the USA, as I know Portugal had received a few and a police unit in either Denmark or Sweeden has some.
    I'm wondering how many went to each country.

    Why do you say Portugal received a few? because of the VIN Decoder here - SAABsPORTUGAL - VIN decoder? the VIN Decoder was developed for all SAAB fans and I can assure you that we don't have any 9-2X in Portugal or even 9-7X, but the vin decoder works for it all.

    I saw a 9-7X once in Munich (I'm Portuguese but I've been living in germany for the past 5 years)

    Haha. Yes. Guilty.
    Thanks for the quick correction on that.

    That said, the remaining part of the correction still stands.

    ....especially the curiosity of how many of each of the sub-models were preoduced.

    Thanx!

    I prefer that we stay on topic.

    You may wish to start another post with your question.

    ...now, back to the accounting for the rarity folks.
