1979-1993 SAAB 900 Turbo specifications


The star of the range was the 900 Turbo – earliest models pushed out 145bhp and delivered rapid and laggy performance. This was soon improved upon – first by the fitment of APC and engine management, and then with the arrival of the 175bhp 16-valve model in 1984. Three-door cars were the most popular, and have a near-cult following now – especially in Aero form. Can suffer from rust around the edges, weak gearbox is an issue, but otherwise, the cars will take 200,000 miles, and more, in their stride. Three-door Aeros are worth considerably more than other models.
