There was a 1986 Convertible. They ran 900 turbo running gear, were painted silver with Turbo 85 alloy rims. One car was allocated to each USA Saab dealership. They were sold nowhere else. In 1987 it became a regular production model.

Yes. Around 300 were sold, according to legend. It is rather rare.


There's at least one 'vert in Ireland with the 'bullnose' front end.

Perhaps this will entice Mr. Daly to post pics....

I saw a nice red one in a driveway in Warwick, RI with a for sale sign a while back. I posted about it in the lounge, as I know they are rare, but I don't think anyone here bought it :(

So, why didn't you buy it, Mr. 'I-need-a-new-tranny'? With that experience behind you, you're the prime candidate for a C900!

haha.. I actually considered it for a little while, but It seemed a bad idea to have more than one car when I'm only renting an apertment and have a small driveway...

It took an offer to buy a Lotus Esprit Turbo SE for me to give more serious thought to having two cars :p

Whoa, that is an offer!


I've been avoiding the Lounge of late due to a hectic schedule -- perhaps I should visit more often.
