The Saab 900 was a car produced by Saab Automobile from 1978 until 1998 in two generations. The 1st generation (Series 1) was produced from 1978 to 1993 while the 2nd generation
(Series 2) from 1994 to 1998. The line was replaced by the
Saab 9-3 in 1998.
The "classic" Saab 900 (Series 1) is based on the Saab 99 chassis, though with a longer front end to meet U.S. frontal crash regulations. The 900 was produced in 2/4-door sedan, and 3/5-door hatchback configurations. In 1986, a convertible model, which lasted up to 1994, was added. There were single/twin-carburetor variants, fuel-injection and turbo charged engines: both Full Pressure Turbo (FPT) and Low Pressure Turbo (LPT) versions.
