I looked up my vin and got this:

VIN: YS3CF65M7S1016728
Manufacturer: Saab Automobile AB
Product line: SAAB 9000
Body type: 5-door CS (9000)
Gear box: 5-Speed Manual
Engine type: B234L - 2.3L turbo, 200 hp
Model year: 1995
Assembly plant: Trollhattan, Sweden, line A
Serial number: 016728
Control symbol: Passed
SRS: Model range III, Driver's and passenger airbag, 9000CSE
Does this mean I have a CS or a CSE?​

No, Your information does read correctly. The engine that is in your car is the 200bhp (B234L), but it is likely to be the base range CS model. They are available, but rare as you had to specify the 200bhp engine as an optional extra. Most people don't believe that your car exists, but trust me, it does. I know, cause I've got a 1997 example of the CS Turbo (B234L).

Enjoy driving a fairly rare saab.

The CS bit is only the body shape though (i.e. Combi-Sedan). With the last line saying 9000CSE, I'd agree with Naranto.

Mine says this:

Vin: *****************
Manufacturer: Saab Automobile AB
Product line: SAAB 9000
Body type: 4-door CD (9000)
Gear box: 4-Speed Automatic
Engine type: B204E - 2.0L turbo LPT, 150 hp (Yeah, not anymore Mr Vin Decoder!)
Model year: 1996
Assembly plant: Trollhattan, Sweden, line A
Serial number: 008331
Control symbol: Passed
SRS: Model range III, Driver's and passenger airbag, 9000CDE

But mine's definitely a CDE.

I confirmed with the dealer that it was a CSE. Also, while I was on the phone, they gave me the complete service history for the car. All the recalls that were taken care of and what maintenance was done. Very cool.:cheesy:
