Saab 99 General Information

At long last the old (and old fashioned) Saab 96 is being replaced. The new car is extremely different to the previous one. The 99 is in a completely different category to the 96, it is much bigger and heavier, but it kept the very typical and unique Saab character in design and it as well has much better engines. Saab always had a tendency to being unique and adventurous, but now with having 16v and turbo engines they have clearly entered a different era to the 2-stroke and V4 times.

But as different it may have been, Saab stuck to some traditions, the main ones being that the car was still FWD, still driven by Stig and Per and still a successful rally car in the hands of these FWD experts. If you look into the evo versions of the 99 you will however find two surprisingly different versions of this car. Look at what difference the turbo makes in torque!

But most notable of all, the car was going to write WRC history: In Sweden 1979 the Saab 99 is the first turbo car to win a WRC event!
