I have a 1993 900turbo conv. and I agree for 100%. You have to face the very noisy engine of the old 900 turbo. The difference in power should not be the point, cause there¥s no problem to "adjust" it to at least 200+bhp/280Nm. The road holding is amazing but very very hard! It¥s no fun to drive it over highways for more than 1 hour! (Anyway! Kick out the GM-stuff and go for the last real SAAB!!! You always can drive an GM/Astra type convertible but the classical 900s are really exotic and rare! I¥m sure you¥ll love it!) - I didn¥t really say that!!! Drive the car for a longer distance and decide, if you still like it! Scott Sognefest wrote: > Hard to say. I have a 94 900S Convertible and I really like it. As you > say, the look is unique.
