The Classic Saab 900, manufactured from 1979 until 1993, remains to this day a very popular car with many thousands having been sold around the world.

The 900 was a development of the 99, using the latter cars central body section, but with the addition of a longer nose and better sculptured rear.

The reasons for the popularity of this car are many, but could include the uniqueness of its design, the reliability and long life, the pleasure of driving it, indeed the list could go on and on!

Over the 14 years of its production the classic Saab 900 was sold in many variations, including 3 and 5 door hatchbacks, 2 and 4 door saloons, cabriolets with a choice of normally aspirated or turbo-charged engines.

Most sought after today are the turbo versions, and in particular the 900 Turbo 16S. Using the existing 900's 2 liter engine (which already featured a 16 valve head!), a Garrett turbocharger with intercooler was added, bumping the output of the engine to 175bhp.

In its day the classic 900 Turbo could give many a car a surprise with its tremendous performance, and to this day it still surprises many.

In our eyes, the Saab 900 was clearly a good looking vehicle, but the jury is still out on the 3-spoke alloy wheels fitted to the turbo versions.
