Cheapest performance car for under $5K - Saab 9000 track proven
Why a Saab 9000? I started this project when a 19 years old mate of mine asked what beater to buy for under AUD$5K so that he can practice track driving later. Since $5K is the total budget, there are only limited choices available to a provisional licence driver in Australia. Since not many people understand about Saab 9000 Aero therefore I decided to make a demo. Saab had well over engineered this car at the time with its engine capable to handle 500hp without touching internal parts. Standard goodies include large Intercooler, BOV & oil cooler. Here is the spec & cost summary: Saab 9000 Aero, 225hp turbo FWD, 5speed $3000 Bridgestone used RE002 tyres on stock 16" wheels $300 Koni adjustable shocks and unknown springs used $450 Stage 1 ECU $150 High flow cat installed $450 Yellowstuff brakepads $200 Oil change, hoses and labour $450 Total $5,000 Driven 45+ fun laps and the Saab 9000 is still fine, no mechanical issue whatsoever. No LSD or seat support is a pain though, gave my arms and abs a good workout. This car is quirky and need to source parts from UK, at least it shows you can still have fun with a relatively low budget. Thank you to JDM Yard for organising this great event @ Wakefield Park Also thank you to Proworks Automotive for helping me out with this build Other cars attended the day included Honda Civic, Integra, S2000, Nissan S13 , S14 & S15, Mitsubishi Evo 6 & 7 and Mazda MX5
