Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

More confirmation

http://www.fortieroccasion.com/road-tes … 5&pg=2

The new engine will undoubtedly make short work of rapid overtaking and acceleration, but with all wheel drive harnessing the extra grunt it won't be a torque-steering ordeal. Also positive, the added torque will without doubt benefit automatic transmission equipped versions. Again, this is only a U.S. destined model new, so Canadians are left to lament from afar.

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

That's all pretty concrete evidence. I also found several other posts on this board in the "News & Press Releases" section that pointed in the same direction.

I think it's safe to call - no Aeros in Canada. Thanks for the info.  embeer

'06 Canada Numbers have been revised in the original post.

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

Here's more confirmation re 2006 Canadian 9-2X:

I went to a site that references trade in values based on Canadian Black Book, similar to blue book from the US:

http://www.langleychrysler.com/wiki/Con … awodBEzIqw

2005's lists two trims, Linear & Aero, but for 2006, trim level only "Base".  I think this put the nail in the casket, no 2006 Aero's in Canada.

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

I knew my 06 was fairly rare when I sold it, odd how I keep picking up low production cars [especially my G8 GXP...only 10 or less made with my color/trans/no sunroof!]

No regrets, it went to a good owner who will actually drive it as intended [as I did], often!  big_smile

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

KRAZYKARGUY:  THANKS FOR  DOING ALL THAT HOMEWORK AND THE FIGURES AND STATS!

No wonder even at an all SUBARU show  (2009 Subiefest at Willow Springs Raceway north of Los Angeles in Rosamond, CA) people still came up to me and asked me WOW! That dude put a Boxer engine into that SAAB... banana
Still I am proud to be driving a great stealth car....too bad not more AERO's in Manual 5 speeds running around. Really too bad that the models didn't go on for longer.  An Sti package would have been nice  (look what Subaru has done to the Sti since 2008)  and there are a few other options I could think of but

Happy to be still driving my  saab 92x  2005 M/T  Dealer installed short shifter and Factory Gauge package...who needs to know what time it is when you're in the canyons!!!

:banghead:Sadly I must sell this car to keep afloat during these economic times and keep my  1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible in the stable. Sad also because the Challenger will never ever come close to handling like the Saabaru and it won't go out in the snow...RATS!

FYI: In the dead and almost gone Found in the Current LA Craigslist there is a Dark Blue being parted out.  Drivetrain is already gone but there are numerous small parts avaiable.

Search LA Craigslist then FOR SALE and add keywords SAAB 92x and Santa Clarita to find ad posted December 1st.
I haven't contacted him as its via CL contact E-mail only but jump on it to see if you need something.
I'll post in West Coast also to spread the word.

Take care,

BigBehr

Hmm, I wonder if the rare factor of my car is affected by all the stuff I have done to it? I mean its hardly even a 9-2x anymore.

arrow-up I would think so.  Your car is only a shell of a 92x.  No offense, but, anyone could slam internals like that into a shell.  Maybe not with such style, but a stock 92x is the real deal.  IMO.  btw i love you car.  pools of mercury and all!   spider

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

Some equipment breakdowns based on the information gathered thus far:

2006 (14 Aeros, 22 Linears):
20/36 cars have the Cold Package (~56%)
9/36 cars have the Leather Package (~25%)
7/14 cars have the Sport Package (~50% - these are all Aeros)
13/36 cars have the Moonroof (~36%)

2005 (113 Aeros, 139 Linears):
103/252 cars have the Cold Package (~41%)
55/252 cars have the Premium Package (~22%)
39/113 cars have the Sport Package (~35% - these are all Aeros)
46/139 cars have the Moonroof (~33% - these are all Linears)

I'd still like more '06 cars for a better analysis. So I'm reaching out again for people to have their information added to the registry, PM me with Year, last 4 of VIN, color and equipment.

Thanks!
-Matt

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

So, after searching .... and looking ..... and searching ..... kar-fax and audo-tradr and all of em ....   roll

I finally find one with low (60Kish), miles and a reasonable price like around $10K ... and it a BLACK ON BLACK AERO ...  (OK so it was an auto but I can deal with that) .... cause if the guy comes down like a grand or so I get to keep my Vette.

All is good  banana .... the sun is shining  ...  driving  .... for once in a loooooong time things is goin' my way ....  smile

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Noted that the pic had a "temporary tag" .... (license plate) on the rear window.  Now why would a guy sell the car while the temp tag is in effect.   confused

Well .... the Carfax .... kind of indicates that the guy only owned the car for a month cause it was a total ... and has a "Salvage" title. 

The only good thing out of this was I could see the sticker where he bought the car .... from a "local" used dealer who sells "top end Euro Iron" .... and out of frustration I was getting ready to go down and have him find me a car. 

At least these numbers explain why they are sooooooo hard to find.

Re: Finally! Solid overall production figures for the 9-2x!

Thanks ... krazykarguy .... and dang it, the hunt is half the fun with cars.  Poor me, but I have that old C-5 to comfort me in the meantime.  "She Who Must Be Obeyed" has hinted that the Vette could go and more $$ could go into the "bread and butter car" ... like the Aero and I could replace the Vette with an MG or TVR.

A few years ago I told her about getting older and how it messes with your hormones that mess with your mind.  You get this urge to, to, well, to do something wild like have a tawdry cheap affair with a hot bimbo .... or get a cool car ... funny, all of a sudden she is pointing out cars she saw for sale on the way home from work.

These are interesting percentages, thanks for the work.   up

I would be interested in seeing what the combo percentages are.  I mean numbers like, "if a car had the sport package, xx% got the moonroof also."  Or, "xx% of the cars that got leather got all options."  Something like the notes about all the cars being Aeros or Linears.

I'm not a stats guy, but I don't think taking all the percentages gives you an accurate account of the rarity of your car.   AND I WANT FACTS!  mad 

And a fact to be confirmed, http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks. … ptions.htm seems to indicate that, on the Aero at least, the leather package requires the sport package.
