I suppose the 9^5 is along the lines of the > Vauxhall Omega. The old 9-3 was based on the Vectra A chassis. The current 9-3 is based on the GM Epsilon platform. The 9-5 is based on a heavily modified Vectra B platform and has no relation to the rear wheel drive Omega. > Still, a flat 4 is *real* Saab ... from the Triumph heritage, of course :) Saab got rid of the "bent" Triumph engine in around 1972 and replaced it with their own "bent" 2.0 liter engine. That engine was then replaced by the current "straight" 2.3 liter engine with balance shafts in 1990. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com
