SAAB Video: SAAB Turbo X IAA Frankfurt 2007

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?

          It's like starting a jet engine. And the sound from the rump flows and bubbles through the whole body.
          I get goose bumps every time.

    The black 900 and the Turbo X next to it ... a picture that has burnt down with me. When I was 2007 at the IAA I did not know which of the two dream cars I should deify more. I was about to become criminal and bring both on a trailer across the border in a night and fog action. Great cars with a crazy fascination. Since my current TiD can hardly keep up.

    Everyone is looking for a sports car and can not find anyone on the street, only a lonely Saab, can he be? That goes through the mind of most ignorant people

    Was the TX also with automatic transmission or only as a switch?

      Is it synonymous with 6-gear automatic. Harmonizes very well.

    Yes, when I saw the Turbo-X at the IAA 2007, I knew it would be mine.
    Even when it's warm and I take the gas back, it continues to bubble
    the 99 Turbo, when he had no cat yet.
    For me, however, only manual transmission comes into question.
