1985 Saab 900S “Notchback” 32k Original Miles

Saab 900s for Sale

Today we present you a great example of the Saab 900S model that had only 32,000 miles driven “on the clock”. Based on the Saab 99 chassis but with a slightly longer front end to meet American safety standards, the Model 900 arrived on the car market back in 1978.

This compact but luxurious car was made for twenty years in two generations, the first until 1993 which is run as a classic and which had several restyling, as well as from 1994 to 1998 which represents the new generation.

It was made in bodywork versions of the two- and four-door sedan, hatchback with three and five, and since 1986 as a convertible. The engines were in-line four-cylinder 2.0 and 2.1L, and certainly the most famous variant of the Saab 900 is the one with a turbocharger.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
