After designing, engineering and manufacturing extended versions of the Saab 99 and Saab 900 models in Uusikaupunki, Finns had plans for a Saab 9000 limousine, but these were never realized and all they have left are designs, now in Valmet Automotive’s archives.

One thought on “Extended versions of the Saab 99 and 900

    The 99 was available as a combi-coupe from 1974 onwards so the rear is not from a 900 (introduced in 1978). Also, you have a typo in Valmet name.
