~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.
Saab 900 turbo on the Stelvio Pass
On August 15th 2010, we drove a MY84 Saab 900 T16 and a MY88 Saab 900 Aero
up and over the Stelvio Pass; also formally known as the 'best driving road
in the world' (Jeremy Clarkson - Top Gear). Besides the fact that we had to
cope with rain, hail and the occasional campervan, it was a delight and the
best day ever spent in an old Saab.

The History of the SAAB - Saab Automobile AB
In the midst of WWII, from manufacturing engines, to aircraft, to cars.
Saab Automobile's history began
Saab Automobile AB is a Swedish premium car manufacturer. It was formed in
1945 when Saab AB began a project to design a small automobile. The first
production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. In 1968 the parent
company merged with Scania-Vabis, and ten years later the Saab 900 was
launched, in time becoming Saab's best-selling model. In the mid-1980s the
new Saab 9000 model also appeared.
In 1989 the automobile division of Saab-Scania was restructured into an
independent company, Saab Automobile AB. The American manufacturer General
Motors took 50% ownership with an investment of $600 million, and then in
2000 exercised its option to acquire the remaining 50% for a further $125
million; so turning Saab Automobile into a wholly owned GM subsidiary. In
2010 GM sold Saab Automobile AB to the Dutch automobile manufacturer Spyker
After struggling to avoid insolvency throughout 2011, the company
petitioned for bankruptcy following the failure of a Chinese consortium to
complete a purchase of the company; the purchase had been blocked by former
owner GM, which opposed the transfer of technology and production rights to
a Chinese company. On June 13, 2012, it was announced that a newly formed
company called National Electric Vehicle Sweden (Nevs) had bought Saab
Automobile's bankrupt estate. According to "Saab United", the first Nevs
Saab 9-3 drove off its pre-production line on September 19, 2013. Full
production restarted Monday December 2, initially the same gasoline-powered
9-3 Aero sedans that were built before Saab went bankrupt, and intended to
get the automaker's supply chain back up and running as it completes
development of its new Nevs products.
