What is parts for life?

Saab leaves behind a great legacy – 70 years in the automobile industry and an iconic lineup of cars. Simply because Saab as an automotive brand has ceased to exist doesn’t mean its story is over. It still has a role and so do the caretakers and the champions of the Saab legacy. Because Saab cars on the road today are more important than ever, they are an endangered species. That makes them precious, unique and a rare part of automobile history. We need to make you and the owners of these cars understand that too.

We have created a campaign to educate about the importance of conservation, preservation and diversity, not only of cars but of all things we share on this planet.

During the course of a year, donations generated by the campaign were given to Nordens Ark, with the purpose of saving endangered animals. It is our belief that there are similarities between Saab cars and these animals. They both need to be carefully looked after by the ones who care.
