    I always liked the look of the 9-5 estate, looked seriously at getting one several times.

    Of course my ultimate Saab would still be this:

    also the 9000 was a mistake to get into bed with Fiat – sharing a platform with the Chroma.. doh!

    Yeah because fiat can’t make a good floor pan (Fiat Tipo -> Lancia Delta).
    The 9000 was far from a mistake, it sold well and had a great rep. It was bigger, quicker and better equipped than anything in its sector when released.

    Obviously I’m biased, but many others feel this is the best car Saab made.
    I bought mine of the president of the UK owners club with just 49k on it. I couldn’t find anything on sale new that matches the luxury and performance on offer for less than £40k.

    Good heavens. I suddenly have a compulsion to run out and buy an Allegro.

    The ?? quatre is a really cute car.

    My ex GF’s dad who had the 900 T16 went on to buy a 9000CDE. That too was AWESOME. It was fast and luxurious and looked the buisness.

    2.3 litre turbo. It was like a jet powered Bang & Olufsen showroom.

    Cougar – if you give in to your urges, make sure you get the special edition Equipe!

    ^ proof that you CAN buy class 😉

    It is a sad state, I had a 9-3 turbo for a lot of years, it was dynamically challenged in the corners but foot down through the third gear was a delight. My dad had a 9000 Carlsson about 1990 and it was a monster. It did have a habbit of blowing the turbo airhose off whilst overtaking a line of traffic which was a bit scary.

    I find it hard to see how they can recover. If you have 20k in your pocket do you want to buy a car from a company that has a high possibility of going under. Catch 22.

    I was thinking of the Vanden Plas, but you make a convincing argument…!

    The advertisng strap line for the Equipe was “ALLEGRO’S NOW EVEN VROOMIER.”

    Ho ho.

    1748cc and 91 bhp. Hmmmmm.
