The 9-5 H/O is not official yet, as in you won't find it in the webpages or any officail catalog (same thing with the 9-3 SVO but at least a lot more people know about it) . There have been talk of a H/O or Aero version from day one but nothing is ever confirmed. Most Dealer or even SAAB USA will not advertise that info in fear or affecting existing sales. As far as I know, I'm the only person that he have told this to as I have warned him of this (I told him that SAAB better not put out an AERO 9-5 6 months to a year after I picked up mine) as I have missed out getting a H/O version on my last 2 SAAB by less than a year (900SPG and the 9000 AERO) and he know I will really be pissed if it happens again. Regards John Yuen P.S. He have no resaon to lie to the person who was the 1st to pre-order a 9-5 (and a 900 turbo 16 back in 85) J.
