Saab History Documentary
In tribute to Saab, here is an old documentary about the history of the
company. It is from the mid 90's and the quality was from a VHS tape. I do
not own the rights to this video. This is for fair use and analysis.

Saab PhoeniX concept revealed in Geneva
A year after gaining independence from GM, Saab is rising from the ashes
with the stunning PhoeniX concept.
Penned by Jason Castriota, the PhoeniX wears Saab's new Aeromotional design
language which incorporates aircraft-inspired styling elements. Notable
highlights include butterfly doors, winglets, a twin-ripple hood, LED
'ice-block' headlights, and a distinctive front fascia which will likely
been seen on future production models.
According to Castriota, "The PhoeniX establishes a new reference point for
the future of Saab product design. It symbolizes a renaissance of the
innovative spirit and passion that drove Saab to build its first car. We're
now taking the visual DNA forward with what we call 'aeromotional' design,
adding emotion, power and fluidity."
No interior pictures were released, but Saab says the cabin has a
minimalist design with a 2+2 seating arrangement and an
afterburner-inspired instrument cluster. More notably, the concept features
an Android-based IQon infotainment system which can download third-party
apps via the internet.
Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops
200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up
by a rear axle electric motor (dubbed eXWD) which churns out 34 PS (25 kW /
34 hp) and gives the car an all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this setup,
the concept can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and hit an
electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). More importantly,
Saab estimates the PhoeniX will have a combined fuel consumption of
5.0L/100 km (56.5 mpg img / 47 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars
