Influenced by General Motors (GM), in 1994 the “New Generation” (NG) SAAB 900 SE, based on the Opel Vectra chassis, was introduced. While this design contained styling cues reminiscent of the classic Saab 900, the Saab 900 NG was fundamentally a different car. For many SAAB fans, this Saab 900 marked the end of Saab’s technology-driven design philosophy and, in their view, the beginning of the dilution of the SAAB brand.
