Equally blasphemous? Like Lamboghini Diablo? In reality, Saab is not very good at naming their cars. The 900 was a longer 99, but 900 span two different cars, the 9-3 now makes the same mistake. Then there was the problem figuring out 95, 9^5 or 9-5. What about using a name that nobody can pronounce: Saab § .
