Chef Gris: 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero

If one wants a low mileage 10 yr old turbo’d 6 cyl Swedish roll-your-own rag top, there aren’t many to choose from but this next one looks clean.  But you’d better like that white-on-white look because this thing is thing is ready for its next James Bond villain owner.

 The 9-3 was built on GM’s global Epsilon platform (Opel Vectra, Cadillac BLS) and is handsome sedan in a clean Audi-like sense, but it still maintains key Saabness.  Quirky, born from jets…whatever — the important stuff is a 2.8 liter turbocharged V6 mated to the front wheels that puts out 250 horsepower.

The seller (an independent dealer) states that the car has a clean title and has been well cared for by its two previous owners.  The odometer sits at 51k miles and the only question is — can you afford the maintenance when the electrics start failing?
