Actually Saab Automobile is using the Cray computers at Saab Aeroplane to simultae crashtests! ;o) Do you really believe :: that aircraft engineers are working on cars? Naaah, not anymore. It is however so, that Scania (Semi-manufaturer) up till resent time has played a huge role in Saab engine development. As their trucks (Scania used to be part of the Saab Group) have had turbo's since the 60's, Saab has been able to take advantage of the great knowledge that the Scania engineers have. Even today, Saabs engine-lab is located on Scania-ground in S–dert”lje, Sweden. Cheers!
