This unique car accelerated Saab into the global executive car market, and was its most successful model ever, with more than 900,000 sold across the world. A combination of attractive Swedish styling, reliability, balanced handling, safety and performance endeared the Saab 900 to loyal owners who kept coming back for more over its long production run.
All extended Saab 900 versions were made in Uusikaupunki, Finland. Here’s an interesting alternative interior design from 1984.
