In all its appearances, this is the car Saab 900 Valmet Automotive has manufactured the most and the longest (in Uusikaupunki plan).  In a fact the most produced Saab model was the first generation Saab 900 (OG) including all the fabulous Saab 900 Cabriolet.

The production of Saab cars in Finland started in 1969, first for the domestic customers, but soon the high quality opened doors to export markets.
