There is a Saab 9-5 Wagon Aero 2.3 TS Viggen 1999 for sale not far away from me.
It has a 152000 miles on the clock. It is well maintained but I have a question.
I can't find anything on this model of 9-5.
Does anybody know the history on 9-5 Viggen models?

Saab built 1 prototype (a saloon), but it was canned due to poor (lower than anticipated) sales of the 9-3 Viggen.

I'm currently building a replica

Well it was originally sold in Liechtenstein. It has viggen logo on the seats. It was one of the first 9-5 wagon aero produced with 2.3 engine.

Very interested in additional details regarding the viggen logo on the seats. I have had a look at the original listing, but i cannot see the logos on the interior photos

The seats are a completely different pattern/style to my 9-5's and do look similar to the ones in my 9-3 Viggen.

It would be interesting to get some more details about the car.

Here is the webpage about the original prototype 9-5 Viggen

If you can get a good price on it and you like the car I would buy it in case it is something special

Well the car is still for sale. I contacted Neobros about the seats and they said that they are not original. Can someone be soo kind and direct me in the direction from which car and year are the seats? Schwedenteile from Germany said that they are from 9-5 from 2003-2010. But I didn't see these seats in any newer 9-5.
The passenger side seating part has a little burnt part and I would like to change it.

Could have been a custom trim order from Saab, or a later retrim of the rears to match a set of Viggen fronts from a 9-3.

I think the mounting holes are the same, although 9-3 seats are a little narrower at the cushion.
