Could it be the most capable car Saab ever sold? The 4WD Subaru chassis can handle well over 300 horses and gobs of torque without breaking a sweat, and thanks to equal length drive shafts, no torque steer! It's powered by a boxer type engine, so it has a lower center of gravity. And let's not forget...it's based on a World Rally Championship car :cheesy:

I think it'll be one of the best handling cars out of the box to wear the Saab badge. However, it remains to be seen if Saab will do some suspension tuning to the standard WRX setup. The full time AWD with the Torsen center and limited slip rear differential will most definitely make the 9-2X the Saab with the quickest launches and the most "sure-footedness" :wink:

The WRX doesn't have a Torsen center diff, it's viscous, like the rear, w/ open front. Works well, and it's lighter than a Torsen setup.
