    Default 1986 Saab 900 16V Turbo - 175 Horsepower

    Iím going to keep this really short and rely on the Kijiji ad I created which can be found here.

    https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...ationFlag=true

    I bought this car last year from the original owner with the full intention of making it my own. It rides like an absolute dream and is VERY fast. Itís had an unreal amount of documented money spent on it during its lifetime, including $18,000 + of receipts from the last few years. In its day, this was the upmarket European hatchback with significantly more power thank the MK2 GTI. It took Volkswagen 4 additional years to make the G60 Golf to compete with this so thatís sort of it in a nutshell - thatís why I bought a 32year old Saab [emoji4]

    It was purchased by an American professor who was teaching in Germany and then all around Europe. For he and his wifeís honeymoon, they were invited to Sweden on the Saab diplomat sales program and they purchased this Saab. It was driven all over Europe for many years and he brought it back the US with him in the late Ď90s. Itís lived indoors and spent time between Calgary, Boulder Colorado and Salt Lake City Utah ever since.

    As it turns out, Itís so original that I just canít bare to change anything about it. Also, I canít justify renting an extra garage to store it (it would be unthinkable to store it outside) I havenít registered it yet because I didnít want it to lose its original owner status.

    Given the rising prices of cars from this period, this could be an interesting car for someone to enjoy and to some degree, to speculate on rising in value...

    Anyways. Let me know if youíve got any questions. Iíd be happy to entertain them or let you take it for a drive (on a closed course [emoji4])

    Price is $5,900

    Damn, this is one of my bucket list cars! Where do you keep coming up with these things?? If I wasn't committed to the RS6 I'd definitely be considering this. Would love to see it in person though.

    My brother used to have 900 SPG. What a great car that was!

    Thanks guys. I don’t even know where they come from anymore, Dave. They just seem to find me somehow.

    Almost sold it to a lady who was the original owner of an ‘87 of the same car. Hers is rusted through but has 670,000KM on the original engine and turbo. She drives it back and forth to the island multiple times every year. Unfortunately, she passed because she just found out her long time trusted mechanic is shutting up shop so she’s going to get something new with a warranty ah well.

    Still up for grabs!

    She did tell me that this colour, Rose Quartz was only available in the 1986 model year so it’s extremely rare.
