What Led to the Demise of Saab?
Why doesn't Saab make cars anymore, and what led to their end? This is a question I've been thinking about a lot recently, and I thought I'd throw together a short video trying to give some reasons that led to it. Of course, there are more reasons than the ones I discussed, so leave some additions thoughts you have in the comments below.

1st dyno pull from my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen Stage 3
First pull of my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen on the Dyno today... Dyno Dynamics Dyno aka the "heart breaker Dyno". Put down 226whp/270wtq. Not bad for a car with 190k miles! For comparison, a Chevy s10 with a v8 350 swap put down around 260wtq and a V6 4th Gen Camaro put down 120whp. Needless to say, I was pretty happy with my numbers. Also, I am still running a stock viggen Intercooler and it was in the high 80's today. The operator also didn't listen to my instructions about rolling into the throttle to prevent overBoosting (which then lowers the Boost once the computer recognizes it). From what I've read online, Dyno Dynamics Dyno's often run 12% to 14% lower than a DynoJet Dyno. So if those numbers are accurate, it probably would have been around 255whp/305wtq on a Dynojet.
