  • Saab unveils the Turbo X
  • Celebration of 30 years at the forefront of turbocharging technology
  • Saab to replicate classic Black Turbo models, available as a limited edition
Saab will go 'back to the future' at next month's Frankfurt International Motor Show by evoking the iconic appeal of its classic 'Black Turbo' models.

The Swedish premium car maker will celebrate 30 years of leadership in turbocharging by unveiling the Saab Turbo X, a limited edition performance car that inherits the visual appeal of the Saab 99 and 900 black turbos - while also introducing cutting-edge technology. This ultimate expression of the new 9-3 range will deliver standard-setting levels of performance for the brand.

It was at Frankfurt in 1977 that Saab surprised the automotive world when it revealed its first turbocharged model. It set a performance trend that others were to follow. Now the innovative features of the new Saab 'Black Turbo' are also expected to attract widespread imitation.

Further details of the Saab Turbo X will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Hmm... 300+ hp, XWD?

Saab will go 'back to the future'

That certainly seems to be The Way Forward.

I'm hoping for at least that much. Even though the Haldex system isn't as good as true AWD system, having 300-320ish horsepower would certianly jab Subaru in the eye.

COULD IT BE A COUPE PERHAPS?

A 3-door coupe would be kickass!

If there's a word for 'reborn' in Swedish it would be 'refödd' (I haven't learned the prefix for 'twice' yet), but 'rebjörn' sounds funny, even in Swedish :lol:

I doubt Saab would commit that much money for a new bodystyle for a limited edition model, on an old platform about to be phased out in favor of the Ep II in a couple of years.

I think it is a nice looking car and a good idea. I remember the SAAB Turbos. They had those Pontiac looking wheels too. Go SAAB!
