Restored by a local Saab Specialist over 10 years ago, and still in immaculate condition. It has water injection fitted, and runs 17psi boost.A 5 speed gearbox from a 88 900 Turbo has been installed. The cold start injector comes in at 10psi, and the Turbo has been highflowed.A 3 inch mandrel bent exhaust system from the Turbo back is fitted, and now the U.S spec front.


I am the 4th owner of this car, and it has documentation back to when it was first delivered. Our Saab Specialist bought it from the 2nd owner, then performed a bare metal restoration. I purchased this car from an enthustiastic Saab family, and have only had to do some interior work. It has been featured in various Motoring Magazines and club issues, as well being on display in classic car shows. Along with my 99GL, I plan to keep these in our family for many years to come.

Personal Notes

Our family has owned 10 different 99's, 5 of these being Turbo's.
