The Saab Performance Team 1996 in Leipzig

Today there is Saab TV in a double pack! A Saab History post draws our gaze back to the year 1996. Automesse is in Leipzig and the Saab Performance Team is visiting Germany.

In a newly digitized TV interview, the Swedes show what they can do with the Saab 900 II Turbo. A well-known Saab rally driver has a say. But what did you do in Saxony with your first name?

Due to the circumstances, the former Saab Performance Team is a independent company become. The former Saab employees drive for other companies, and they are very successful with it. A few weeks ago there was again an entrepreneurial award, this time at the local level, after a national award this spring.

Maybe the former Saab performance team will eventually be back with new vehicles that are "Made by Trollhättan" in action. I would wish it, and hope should never be given up so completely.

A current Saab topic will start today at 17.00 clock at Vox Auto Mobil. It's about the Saab collector Josef Zabel, his Saab 9-5 sports car from the pre-series and other Saab things. The topic is not mentioned in the Vox preview, but Josef reports that his contribution will go on air today. So: turn on!

  • As mentioned in the post.
    A Polo would be tormented with it.
    Not a Saab.

  • Maybe because the others no longer fit in the garage, are driven more often and therefore stand outside?
    As clearly seen in the video, the SAAB are happy to be driven.

    I have before me the article from the former SAAB magazine. (next to the others on increasing sales figures, new SAAB as a rental car in the USA and Germany, ...) Afterwards, the above performance was the first for the "Performance Team" in Germany.
    And judging by the picture, there were even sunny hours in Leipzig.

  • Meadow only two ???

  • Great show!
    I've been looking for such a 902 coupe for a while now, but that's really difficult. There are hardly any reasonable.

  • Was then in Leipzig and have pictures of it.
    Was something new for me as Thüringer and from then on I was Saabfan.
    Today there are two in my garage.

  • Class SAAB performance ART! 🙂 I think the “Drängler tip” is cool… 😉

  • those were the days!
