Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

. . .as Sgt. Hulka said.

I have no affiliation with this eBay seller.

That said, from 1985 to 1995, I sold SAABs for a living.

At the risk of upsetting our OP, I have every confidence that this is an authentic SPG. For what that's worth.

They all came to the showroom adorned with the SAAB badges on the left of the hatch--nothing on the right, or the hood. ( I chuckle now, as I did then, that badge and molding "deletions" were part of an extra-cost package. Very Porsche-like.) The grey/grey combo was only offered on SPGs and convertibles that year.

I see nothing troubling about the way the side panels and arches are attached--though a strange reflection in one of the first photos might give one pause. Perhaps the rear bumper extension pieces--among others--are incorrect, but that's about it.

This would not be the first 900 to have had it's 30-year-old grille replaced. Ditto for AWOL foglights.

In its FAVOR, it lacks the ridiculous motorized seatbelts that were phased in to S and Turbo hatches, including SPGs, through the 1988 model year. By default, this SPG would command a premium over a comparable mouse-belt car.

Bid with confidence, as they say.
