This book traces the design, development and production history of the iconic Classic Saab 900 model, manufactured from 1978 to 1993, looking at every variant from the basic single carburetter Saab 900 GL to the blisteringly fast turbocharged Saab 900 Turbo 16S.
This unique car accelerated Saab into the global executive car market, and was its most successful model ever, with more than 900,000 sold across the world. A combination of attractive Swedish styling, reliability, balanced handling, safety and performance endeared the Saab 900 to loyal owners who kept coming back for more over its long production run. Today, the model that enthusiasts and casual observers immediately identify as “the Saab” is fast becoming a collector’s car, and deservedly so, with good examples fetching premium prices.
This book is an essential reference for all the Classic Saab 900s produced. The book covers the design, manufacture and launch of the Saab 900 and traces the various developments, including re-styling and engine modifications as well as the convertible and special edition models from the late 1970s to the mid 1990s.
The book also includes detailed tables with production breakdowns and engine specifications. There is currently no single reference-style lavishly illustrated book dedicated to the Classic Saab 900 and this book fills that gap. There is growing interest in this modern-day classic from enthusiasts and investors, and prices for the best survivors are steadily rising.
This book will act as useful, concise and attractive single reference point to this audience.
