It was a good sign. At the IAA 2007, in addition to the redesigned 9-3 series, a black Saab 900 Turbo 16 S and a Turbo X were in the immediate vicinity on the Saab stand. Finally, I thought, you remember the tradition and the old ones Saab strengths. The Turbo X, of course only available in jet-black, should continue the history of the 900 Turbo 16 S and continue the tradition of compact high-performance cars from Trollhättan.
He brought with him the necessary genes. With the Saab XWD, based on Haldex 4, the Swedes were able to present the then most advanced four-wheel drive system on the market. Coupled with the strong turbo, it became the most active Saab ever. The crazy sound of the Turbo X turns every cold start into an experience, and Turbo X riders enjoy the 30 second warm-up.
I admit it, Turbo X driving is addictive. Even more than 5 years after the performance in Frankfurt, the fast Swede fascinates every day anew. Has he become a cult and has he followed the 900 Turbo 16 S tradition?
After the provisional end in Sweden, a run began, and the market was bought empty. Now and then one of the well-known portals appears and is quickly secured by a fan. If it lasts longer, it usually has a reason. A well-known Saab partner now leads a search and reservation list for the Turbo X. Need more words?
