Restored by previous owner to near mint condition. Body / physically in incredible condition... You can't tell that this car is almost 30 years old. Interior nearly perfect. Currently addressing re-installation of original radio with cassette and speakers, and minor fabric repairs to seat. Also making minor repairs such as courtesy lights and 1 horn not functioning.

Cur runs incredibly well and is being adjusted to run even better, like new, although it is already an absolute blast to drive.

The picture doesn't even come close to doing this car justice and I have yet to take more and better pictures as I am too busy wanting to drive it when I get near it or work on the little things.


Original owner was in New Jersey and I am not sure if I am third owner or further down the chain. Car was meticulously and lovingly restored by previous owner over the course of many, many years. Didn't think I would ever find a '78 99 Turbo like this. My goal is to spend the time and money to make this car as close to original perfection as possible.

Personal Notes

This is a crowning jewel in my Saab collection (currently at 5). While hard to have a favorite, this car is just so special, amazing, fun and beautiful. Previously owned a 3 door '78 99 EMS which I have missed until finding this car.
