A proper 900 Turbo has a life of its own, only a Saab enthusiast would
understand, some may hate it or at best not get it. For me its a piece of
automotive history representing the best of the 90s and perhaps outwith
that something better inside us all, from a Golden age where every
manufacturers models had a high degree of personality and individuality
that was instantly recognizable. Driving it today it draws supreme admiration,
thumbs up, lights flashing, pictures and videos being taken and social media
posting, its not like a new Porsche where you are sneered at, lip reading
obscenities along the way, guaranteed to get let out every junction with a
smile and a wave.
Setting this car apart is its original unaltered condition, this is not a
restored Saab, nor does it require any restoration work, its an original
survivor that has been extremely well maintained and as such been spared
the ravages of time. The knowledgeable owners have taken precautions applying
a proactive approach to ownership, servicing and preservation. The images of
which there are many should speak a thousand words.
Two original keys with dealer supplied keyrings, full toolkit and spare, original
supplied working stereo, all manufacturers labels are present and correct, all
as the car left the factory with no compromises. In addition, there is an
aftermarket immobilizer fitted with 2 security pins. A space saver factory
spare sits in the boot alongside a full-size spare alloy for convenience when
touring. A hard backed tonneau cover completes the story with a leather storage
bag. Hard plastic fitted branded plastic mats protect the carpets front to rear.
The Saab 900 Cult
The classic world is at last waking up to the classic Saab, like all the real
Saab's its as timeless now as it was then, and they were the real deal. Classic
cars come and go but the appeal of some remains constant and none more
so than the 900 - the last real Saab say some of the marque's cognoscenti.
Think of it as a time-warped Sixties swinger but with MTV street cred and a
style and look that was as unique as Citroen's. All of which is why the last
Saab 900 - manufactured until 1993 - became an instant classic upon its
demise, and remains a sought after though little remembered classic as
yet, though time has a habit of changing things.
Owning a classic model Saab 900 is an easy way to being different and this modern
classic is one that anyone would be deeply proud to be the next custodian, its
ready to be used and enjoyed and stored with sympathy, and would be the envy
of any Saab show it entered. With values of young timer Fords Vauxhalls Mercs
and Bmws rising, this is a bit different and is a model that has a proper depth
to the build quality and engineering, one of the coolest cult cars ever made.

As unmarked as it is remarkable. The paint retains a deep glossy shine and is in
superb condition all around and looking to be factory original. On close inspection
there are no negatives to be found with only a few discreet blemishes that have
been touched in. All of the panels are nice and straight, lining up as they should,
with all lenses remaining free from any cracks or moisture. Presents like a 5 yr
old car with a true depth to paint, currently detailed to a very high standard with
all the lines angles and quirks of the 900 surely looking their best in Flat White.
The underside is excellent too with old school undersealing evident, open
any door or inspect any gutter line and its lovely.
The interior of the 900 is awash with period leather, emitting an unforgettable
aroma that takes you back in time. The chairs remain in excellent condition with
just a hint of patina, and supportive in a way seats will never be again. The
rear seats look unused and the headlining is perfect. The A1 condition continues
to the door cards, along the bottoms of the doors, the door shuts and A and B
posts, along the dashboard, and all the rubbers none of which shows signs of
age or damage. The centre console is the same, with no wear to any buttons or knobs.
The carpets throughout remain clean and tidy and unspoiled.
The mohair hood ( recently replaced) folds electrically in a matter of seconds and
folds back up with equal pace. Its in first class condition with a proper rear glass
screen that is heated.
The engine bay presents remarkably well and is consistent with a car having
been extremely well cared for. Unsurprisingly the 5 speed transmission shifts
through the gears with ease and there are no shortcomings with anything, its
an utter joy. The underside is dry and well protected, the car has never had
Things like the world's first side impact bars, the first pollen and pollution
filter for the cabin air system, and windscreen pillars made of 2.5mm rolled steel,
were all unique Saab traits. Lift up the carpet and you will find box section
steel beams like no other car, reinforcing the floor. The 900 was so far ahead
in safety terms at its 1979 launch that it stayed safe until its discontinuation
in 1993 after nearly a million cars were made. Driving the Saab 900 is a world
away from today's flat-screened greenhouses. You sit deep behind a unique
curved windscreen with a dashboard that rolls away for acres. The windscreen
is slot-like and your knees go under the fascia - not over it. It is more like sitting
in a deep Victorian cast iron bath.
Remember you get what you pay for in life, the quality of this 900 will remain long
after the price has been forgotten. Investment wise this is easily tipped as a model
that will multiply in value in coming years, think about it..
