Sort of, here’s what happened. The Swedish at Saab decided that what their range needs is a range of performance tuner offerings.
So what did Saab come up with for an alternative to AMG? Well, Americans rejoice, the tuning options to come from Saab will be made in the U.S.A. for the U.S.A.
Sadly, Saab’s tuning contract is only limited to the U.S. but we now want to enjoy the fact that there’s a “for now” tag added to it.
It’s probably enough stalling for the time being, Saab has teamed up with none other than Hirsch Performance for their hot aftermarket options.
Details on the deal are late in what exactly is happening but Saab did publish availability and conditions of the said parts.
Basically, your run of the mill Saab dealer will be able to install Hirsch Performance parts on your Saab to varying degrees of warranty promises. On the other hand, if you plan to buy yourselves a new Saab with some added Hirsch parts they will be offered with full warranties on your vehicle.
In a full lineup, Hirsch Performance parts will be offered on anything included in the 2007-2011 Saab 9-3 and 2010-2011 9-5 range.
