This post reads a bit like an ad. What it actually means is that Saab badly
needed to unload a large number of 9000 models as their freshness label was
about to expire.
They did a nearly profit-less deal to move the iron. It comes at the end of a

ahead of last year's pace now, but will have to "re-market" the same cars as
used cars later in life. It delays facing the reality that the 9000 is no
longer able to sell in reasonable numbers without extraordinary measures.
