1992 SAAB 900 TURBO 16 VALVE AERO 3DR COUPE
Becoming Very Rare Now & Appreciating Fast
91000 Genuine Miles

HD Quality images available


J638 VJM was registered 31st March 1992 and has just been MOT’d for 12 months with
NO advisories.

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 model had a high degree of personality and individuality
that were 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.

The 16 Valve Turbo Aero 175 BHP
This is the full-blown model which is now quite rare to find. Sporting the
complete Aero kit. Today these are highly elusive models, a search of how many left
website suggests that currently there are very few registered, you will be
unlikely ever to pass another one on the road. Of note this car has been upgraded
with the full pressure turbo with red box APC kit taking it to Carlsson
specification performance and 185 bhp.

Setting this car apart is its original unaltered condition, this is not a
restored Saab, its an original survivor that has been very 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 condition of the bodywork is fantastic with
zero rust or even any blemishes.

Two original keys, full toolkit and spare, a period stereo with working aerial,
all manufacturers labels are present and correct, all as the car left the
factory with no add ons or cheap alterations or compromises.

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 late 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.

Saab Innovation
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. The
seats feel orthopedic, and the boot space is massive, I could go on and
on...and I will.....

The 900 was Saabs best ever selling car and they have always overflowed
with feeling. Like Rolex, Apple or Harley-Davidson, there is something
mysterious – albeit modest and Scandinavian – about Saab that, over the
years, has transcended its marketing and publicity materials and been
appropriated by the people who drive the cars. The phenomenon examining
the behavior of Saab drivers, you discover a hierarchy, also known as
“Snaabery" often defined by owning an original, pre-GM Saab; rituals and
moral responsibilities: flashing your lights at other Saab drivers and
helping them out of trouble; oppositional loyalties: despising BMWs;
and myth-making: notably “How Saab saved my life” stories about
crashes in which the cars lay down their lives for their owners.

Remember you get what you pay for in life, the quality of this 900 will
remain long after the price has been forgotten. Be mindful that currently
there are very few of these models licensed and on the road. Investment
wise this is easily tipped as a model that will multiply in value in
coming years, think about it..
