SAAB 99 TURBO

2-door/3-door/4-door/5-door saloon/hatchback.

Charismatic, image-changing turbocharged model from Saab, boosting the 2-litre engine from 118bhp to 145bhp, The combination of small turbo and carefully calibrated injection made this a smooth and civilised sporting machine, built - as usual for this range - in four different body derivatives on the same front-wheel-drive floorpan. Four speeds at first, but five-speeds available for 1980. 120mph top speed, with a great rush of acceleration above 3000rpm. Safe, solid-feeling, with great stability and commendable dignity.
