SAAB 99Classic Car
Although the 92 and 96 had done well for Saab, the firm’s bosses knew that in order to retain customers, it would need to introduce a larger car. The 99 ended up being the perfect car to head the range as it was also innovative, quirky and individual. The wraparound screen and impressive aerodynamics packaged a front-wheel-drive car of commendable dynamic prowess. Its 1.7-litre engine had been developed in tandem with Triumph and UK engineering company Ricardo, although Saab developed it further to overcome a number of design faults.
