Saab Acceleration vs Others Posted by Scott Paterson [Email] (#13) [Profile/Gallery] (more from Scott Paterson) on Tue, 27 Jun 2017 10:49:07 Members do not see ads below this line. - Help Keep This Site Online - Signup
I think this is a great article by SaabPlanet. Love the excerpt below the most.
"Once, Saab allegedly used to claim in all Saab 9000 Aero brochures that 50-70 mph the Saab 9000 Aero was faster than a Porsche 911 and a Ferrari. Autocar magazine then published this list:
Saab 9000 2.3T 5.6s
Lamborghini Diablo SE 6.3s
Porsche 928 GT 6.5s
Lotus Esprit S4 6.8s
Aston Martin DB7 7.1s
BMW M3 7.1s
And that's not all, the "myth" is emphasized by mentioning this comparison in the popular "Top Gear" TV Show. It was the one where Jeremy Clarkson said that Saab 9-5 had quicker acceleration 40 -70 than a Porsche turbo. Also, Wikipedia suggests 50-75 is quicker than a Carrera 4S."
