Saab 9000 Turbo - Documentary
The Saab 9000 is a large executive car that was produced by the Swedish
company Saab from 1984 to 1997. Representing the company's foray into the
executive car scene, the 9000 remained in production until it was replaced
by the Saab 9-5 in late 1997.
Saab designed the 9000 as part of the Type Four platform in conjunction
with the Italian automaker Fiat Automobiles. Fiat retailed similar
derivative versions as the more basic Fiat Croma, the luxury-themed Lancia
Thema, and the sports-oriented Alfa Romeo 164. Unlike the 164, which shares
only the chassis, the Croma and Thema are outwardly similar to the 9000. As
such, much of the bodywork appeared interchangeable between the 9000, Croma
and Thema; for example, the doors. However, because Saab fitted heavier
side impact protection they will not fit. Only seven
different parts are actually interchangeable. The 9000's body was
designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Saab designer Björn Envall.
Despite being shorter overall than the 900, the 9000 had a longer wheelbase
and greater interior space, and was the first Saab vehicle imported to the
United States to be classed as a "large car" by the EPA.

2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
