Vintage. The Saab 900 | drive it

Drive It! took a real rarity onto the race track: a front-wheel-drive Saab 900 turbo boasting 300 horsepower with a peak torque of 500 Nm. This Saab is a real competition car. Trimmed down to a weight of around one ton it can feel at home on any circuit. Amateur racing driver Nico Gasparatos shows what the Saab can do.

This Saab 900 Was Built to Last
On a brisk Utah morning, at the base of a ski resort, we spent some time with a Saab 900 SPG. Owner, Jordan Melville, dives into his love for Saab, detailing how he brought this 900 back from the brink of the wrecking yard to experience the car as if it were brand new.While modern day Saab struggles to keep their cars on the road, Jordan's 900 SPG keeps the flame alive.

Quantum Two races again (SAAB two-stroke powered)
The Quantum Two was built by Walter Kern in 1959 and raced alongside the Quantum One in the early 60's. We know for sure that it raced at the Marlboro track in Maryland (USA) in the 1961 6-hour enduro for sports cars. To the best of our knowledge, it hasn't been on the track since. That is, until this video was shot at the VSCCA event at Pocono International Raceway April 12th and 13th. The car utilizes a completely stock SAAB three cylinder 750cc two-stroke engine from a SAAB 93 and a 4 speed gearbox from a SAAB 95. The suspension is also SAAB. Gauges are from a SAAB GT 750. Eventually, I will build a proper race-prepared engine to match the one the car had originally, but for now this one has to do. This particular race is one where we combined my race group (small displacement cars) with the group of students that was attending the VSCCA driving school this weekend. That's why there's a silly Miata in my vintage race!
