Saab 900 Convertible


Saab 900 Convertible

Unusual styling has always been a Saab trademark and the company's most successful car, the 1979-93 900, was no exception. With huge bumpers and an oddly-sloped tail, its unconventional looks polarised opinion. But nobody could deny the 900's excellent safety record and impressive build quality, which easily rivalled that of the top German makers. Saab decided to chop the top off the 900 in 1986 and the soft-top model became an instant success, offering all the practicalities and comforts that owners of the saloon were accustomed to alongside an added dash of style and fresh air fun. The roof was designed in the USA and could be raised or lowered electrically, while the lack of a roll-over hoop meant that extra body stiffening was added to the windscreen pillars and floor. Production only finished in 1993 after the sale of almost one million 900s.
