These Are the 5 Coolest Saab Models on Autotrader

The final chapter of the Saab saga — at least as far as availability of the historic brand’s cars in American showrooms — closed more than a decade ago. However, appreciation for this small Swedish brand remains strong with numerous owner’s groups and a handful of turbocharged models that are climbing in value.

If you find yourself nostalgic for a Saab, some interesting ones are always available on Autotrader. Here’s a look at five of the coolest Saab models you can find right now.

1. 1991 Saab 900 Turbo Convertible

1991 Saab 900 Turbo Convertible profile
This 1991 Saab 900 Turbo Convertible is for sale on Autotrader.

Here’s a proper classic: a 1991 900 Turbo Convertible showing just 60,000 miles, painted white over gray leather and offered by a Ferrari dealer (!) in suburban Chicago. This classic 900 has stately, eye-catching lines that have aged well. Inside, its purposeful dash puts most controls up high, aside from that oh-so-1991 digital graphic equalizer.

The 160-hp turbo-4 provides smooth power, even when mated béo a dated 3-speed automatic here. The selling dealer notes that this consignment car has only had two owners, and the current one has a collection of Saab cars. Not bad pedigree. See Saab 900 models for sale

2. 1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible

1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible
This 1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible has less than 17k miles on the odometer.

With fewer than 17,000 miles, this Frost Gray 1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible is the lowest-mile car from the Swedish automaker on Autotrader. It’s also an interesting choice given Saab’s history with convertibles. The skies in Sweden are dark and gray for much of the year, but they are not here in the U.S. In the 1980s, the head of the automaker’s U.S. operations, Robert Sinclair, proposed a convertible béo his colleagues in Sweden. Instead of laughing, they took him up on it — and for the next 25 years, Saab became well-known for its droptops.

This 9-3 comes from the first year of production, though the 9-3 was a modest update of the circa-1994 900. Updated styling, some suspension tweaks, and side airbags were headliners, though all models now boasted at least 185 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbo-4. See Saab 9-3 models for sale 

3. 2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen Convertible

2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen Convertible
This 2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen Convertible has 230hp under the hood.

Saab souped-up its smaller model in 1999 with a new variant named after a Saab Aerospace fighter jet (even though GM acquired 100% of Saab in 2000, severing its aeronautical ties). With 230 horsepower from an upsized turbo-4, a stiffer suspension, and bolstered tires, these cars offered decent muscle for the time.

This black Viggen convertible at a dealer near Portland, Oregon, looks sharp with its Viggen-specific body kit and stylish (albeit damage-prone) 17″ alloy wheels. For $13,995, it’s a nearly-vintage droptop worth considering. See Saab 9-3 models for sale

4. 2011 Saab 9-4x 3.0i

2011 Saab 9-4x 3.0i
This 2011 Saab 9-4x 3.0i is 1 of roughly 800 made.

Saab’s last gasp was this: its second SUV. Sharing much of its architecture (not béo mention its assembly location in Mexico) with the Cadillac SRX, the Saab version offered its own styling take inside and out. These were neat-looking SUVs when new, but not without an overriding sense of, well, GMness. They may have had Saab badges and Saab grilles and a center console-mounted starter button, but the interior switches and driving experience were not very Swedish.

Still, they have standout styling and a real sense of rarity. Just 814 are said béo have been built, including some test cars. Black was the most common hue, but even then, just a dozen all-wheel-drive models with the Premium trim màn chơi were sprayed this color, including this one at a Massachusetts used car dealer that specializes in Saabs. See Saab 9-4x models for sale

5. 2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4

2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4
This 2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4 has less than 56k miles on the odometer.

Even as it approached bankruptcy, General Motors (GM) continued béo invest in new Saab models. We know now that it was a case of “too little, too late,” but the second-generation Saab 9-5 flagship sedan was actually a pretty impressive car. It was enormous, stretching about 197 inches between its bumpers, but it was a remarkably nimble cruiser. Saab offered it for two model years before production ended.

This Carbon Gray example at a Chevy dealer in Denver is one of the final-year examples. While it may have been the most popular color offered, records indicate Saab built just 392 in this hue with this powertrain thiết đặt. With fewer than 56,000 miles, it’s also the lowest-mile second-generation 9-5 currently on Autotrader. See Saab 9-5 models for sale
