A once quirky, unusually designed car that was once different from the crowd. The company is now 100% GM owned and so its models are a rag tag bunch Opels, Subarus (well the 9-2X will be a "saab" design soon since they no longer own Subaru) etc. The SAAB 9-7X is a rebadged GM envoy and they even put the ignition in between the seats to convince dummies it was a Saab. lolz . Hahaha. SELLOUTS.
Dick: "My father loaned me his SAAB 9-7x to drive to the golfing range, and it drives so nicely since its a European design."
John: "but your truck is really a GM , gas guzzling waste of space and fuel...."
(laughter all around)
Dick: "but .... but... "
John: "why don't you girls get in my BMW and I'll show you some performance? ;o)"
Exit John with 2 supermodels.
Dick pulls a raisor blade from his cardigan, and slowly raises it to his wrists...
An innovative Swedish automobile manufacturer known for its efficient, high performance turbocharged engines, aircraft design heritage and first-in-class safety.
Saabs are often considered the choice car for people less concerned with fitting in with a crowd, such as those who purchase autmobiles manufactured by BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and other preimum marques, but more concerned with originality, technology and efficiency.
In the market for a premium car, Rob wanted something that would never bore him; he chose a Saab.
While the yuppie masses scoot along in their 3-series BMWs and boring Lexuses, a Saab flys by in a turbocharged rush.
Well built/made car from sweden, they are generally a lot quicker than most average cars due to the turbo's that are added to most of their range. Sure to suprise Boy racers

A well-made, classic Swedish car. Those of us whose parents bought us a Saab may be preppies, but we are defintely not losers. That term is reserved for those who are jealous of Saab owners.
Saabs are classy cars.
Acronym for "Svenska Aeroplan Aktie Bolaget", meaning Swedish Airplane Company.
Saab is an aerospace manufacturer based in Sweden, who in post-war year of 1947 decided to start marketing a car called the "92" which used an engine derived from DKW (part of the old Auto Union in Germany). Saab went on to produce the 93, the 95, the Sonnet II and Sonnet III, the 96, 99, 900, 9000, 9-3, 9-5 and the new 9-2x. The automotive branch of Saab is no longer associated with the old parent aerospace manufacturer. 50% of Saab was purchased by GM in 1989, and the remaining 50% in 1999.
In 1986, when the Saab 9000 was introduced into the United States, it was the fastest (top speed) sedan sold in the US.
Saab did NOT invent the turbocharger, nor make the world's first turbocharged vehicle. However, the Saab 99 turbo was responsible for bringing turbocharged automobiles to the masses, and is considered the world's first WIDELY PRODUCED turbocharged car.
My family has a 1995 Saab 9000 Aero and a 1997 Saab 900s.
SAAB 900 (SPG/Turbo):
The turbocharged model can produce over 210 hp, and was a pristine and powerful car back in the late 1980's when this much power was unheard of in a car with only an inline-4. Its top speed is about 140mph, and leather, a spoiler, a sunroof, power everything, and many other accessories were common, though not standard with the 900. The 900 was also the first car with heated seats and SAAB itself was the first to invent the turbocharger. Without the SAAB, companies like Porsche (depended on the turbocharger) would not have survived.
Whoever said they wasted the day driving.. wasn't driving a SAAB..
Sweaty ass and balls syndrome - (Pronounced - sabs) a condition that affects men. Extreme heat in the ass and ball region causing excessive sweat often soaking outter clothing and leaving wet spots on chairs. The condition is especially prevalent in the summer months.
Look guys his ass is soaked from sweat. It looks like he is sufferings from saabs.
A Swedish automobile company focusing on safety and uniqueness, being discovered in 1947 by 16 aircraft engineers. GM now owns 100% of the company, and has each model being built in different locations: (9-7x = detroit , new 9-3 = Germany, 9-5 = Sweden). The company remains unique with hi-powered 4 cylinder engines with light pressure turbos -- capable of pumping out 260 hp on the 9-5 sedan and sportcombi. There interiors are made from upscale materials, but not always as roomy as americans demand. Quirky-but-safe center mounted ignition switches are featured on every model, staying true to there rich and prestigious name. These are just a FEW reasons why the Saab company has the 2ND highest customer loyalty ranking out of all car companies. PEOPLE COME BACK FOR MORE -- THEY OBVIOUSLY BUILD A NICE CAR!
