I have been saying to my friends for some time now that SAAB really needs to re-assert itself as a producer of performance cars. In recent years they have taken a battering from BMW and Volvo. What I want is a road going version of Per Eklund's rally cross car. This is a factory supported 9-3 derivative with according to rumour 750 bhp and 4wd (mostly through the rear wheels from what I have seen). Does anyone out there know more about this car? -----------== Posted via Deja News, The Discussion Network ==---------- http://www.dejanews.com/ Search, Read, Discuss, or Start Your Own
