Subject: Re: Alfa164/Saab9000 similarities?


In an earlier reply it was already mentioned that part of the design was shared between four different cars/brands. However, the shared effort ends at the base. If there'd be any interchangeable parts in these cars, it would have to be on the lower end. So yes, I'd bet on suspension and stearing parts. I suppose if one really wanted, it would be possible to interchange engines. Come to think of it, this isn't such a bad idea after all. I seem to recall there was a special edition of the Thema with a Ferrari engine......
