I know other "rare" cars have a registry. Is anyone in this forum interested in starting one, or know of one? I believe with about 11,000 total production worldwide the 9-5NG qualifies as rare.

I can do the heavy lifting and maintenance in managing the site. I imagine as these cars get older and rarer, and depending on Saab's future, the registry would continue to grow. The advantage to starting off early is that most are still on the road today, so the potential for saying that you own "1 out of 16" of a particular color / option / engine combo is possible.
This is a very informative site, it gives the NG production numbers by trim and color for 2011.

(I have 1 of 175 2010 Aeros in Black (named Darla) - maybe there are even fewer if some of them are either totaled or not on the road).

Proud owner of a 2011 AeroTurbo4 in Fjord Blue. Neutral leather with inserts in door card. 145000 miles on clock now. Turbo failure due to oil starvation (kink in pipe blamed) at 117000. Since then no real problems apart from parking. It is a big car to get into some carparks around where I live. Peterborough, U.K.
