Tag Archives: Saab 900

The Saab 900 is a compact luxury automobile that was produced by Saab Automobile from 1978 until 1998 in two generations. The first generation from 1978 to 1993 is known as the “classic”; the generation from 1994 to 1998 is known as the “new generation”.

The “classic” Saab 900 was based on the Saab 99 chassis, though with a longer front end to meet U.S. frontal crash regulations. The 900 was produced in 2- and 4-door sedan, and 3- and 5-door hatchback configurations; in addition, from 1986, a cabriolet (convertible) model was produced. There were single- and twin-carburetor, fuel-injection, and turbocharged engines, including both Full-Pressure Turbo (FPT), and, in European models during the early 1990s, Low-Pressure Turbos (LPT).
