END OF THE SAGA

Classic Porsche - - News & Products -

Fans of TV series The Bridge will no doubt have been fight­ing over the 1977 Porsche 911S driven by the se­riesʼ cen­tral pro­tag­o­nist, off­beat de­tec­tive Saga, which was be­ing of­fered for sale by Bon­hams auc­tion house. The sale took place at the Fes­ti­val of Speed Sale on 13 July at Good­wood, with pro­ceeds go­ing to in­ter­na­tional char­ity Wat­eraid cour­tesy of the pro­duc­ers of the hit series, Film­lance, part of En­de­mol Shine Group, and Nim­bus Films.

Since it first ap­peared in the series, the iden­tity, ori­gin and spec­i­fi­ca­tion of the car have been sub­ject to wide­spread de­bate. Even the pre­cise colour code of the paint job has gen­er­ated sig­nif­i­cant spec­u­la­tion. Now we can re­veal that the car was im­ported to Swe­den from San Fran­cisco in 2009 and is fin­ished in Jäger Grun.

Lars Blom­gren, An­ders Land­ström and Bo Ehrhardt, cre­ators of The Bridge said, ʻWe are very happy that The Bridge will fin­ish its suc­cess­ful UK jour­ney with the sale of Saga Norén's Porsche and that we are able to do­nate the money to a cause as im­por­tant as Wat­eraid.ʼ www.wat­eraid.org
