If you're looking for a modern Saab, you already know you're out of luck, since the brand departed our lives a few years ago. Of course, you can still find a few examples of Saab's last models -- the final 9-5 and the 9-4X SUV -- on Autotrader, including this final-generation 9-5, which is surprisingly cheap.

Listed here and offered for sale by a private seller in Connecticut is this 2010 Saab 9-5 Aero with 91,000 miles. It's listed for just $9,500, which makes it one of the least-expensive "final" 9-5 models currently on Autotrader, as most seem to be congregating in the $10,000-$15,000 range. This particular 9-5 lists an accident on the Carfax report in 2013, but it's otherwise a one-owner vehicle that looks like it was well-maintained at a Ford-Lincoln dealer in Connecticut.

Beyond being the cheapest "new" 9-5 model on Autotrader, this one is also an Aero, which is the only trim offered for the first model year. In 2011, the second and final model year, the 9-5 added a smaller engine -- but the Aero used a 300-horsepower turbocharged V6, and it came solely with all-wheel drive. A manual transmission was also offered, but this particular 9-5 has an automatic, proving you can't quite have everything.

Still, you can have a cheap modern Saab, and that has considerable appeal -- so if that's what you're looking for, go pick this one up.
