That is not my point, however. My point is that they can be made to work pretty darn well -as the Porsche example indicates. They don't have to compromise the driving characteristics of a road-going car. And just opting for a solution that in theory is more legant does not mean that it's going to work any better in the real world. Fact is engineering is full of compromises, be it for the new or old Saab designs. And if its track use you're talking about, I doubt the older 900s can hold a candle to a new generation based Viggen, struts or not. But I doubt any of us is going to use track times as an argument for what we'd buy to drive every day. ...pablo
