Read about the full scale model 92002 from 1947 that proved that Saab was headed in the right direction. And check out the best unrestored Saab 92A in the world, a tribute to its first owner. We also dig deep in the vaults to find the models that never came to be. Treasuries in clay, plasteline and balsa-wood. This magazine is about all the models; we have no less than 18 pages with praise of the 9000 for example. And also a great story about Saab 9-5 NG Sport Combi.
Perhaps it had the power to change history but it didn’t get ready in time. Also a great story about Saab in the USA. The first sales attempts were made in 1956 in what was to become Saab’s most important market. The small car made a great impression on a select but small group of car buyers. Are you one of them?
