About Saab Automobile
After World War II, the Swedish Aeroplane Corporation – SAAB AB – looked to diversify into the small automobile market.
The result was the Saab 92. It featured a unique, wing-shaped profile, a transverse two-stroke engine, front-wheel drive and a safety cage for improved safety. One article argues that with its amazingly low drag coefficient, the Saab 92 was basically an airplane!
Like the Ford Model T, the car was originally available only in one colour. In the case of the Saab 92, that colour was green.
Saab Automobile went on to upgrade the engine, adopt the Saab’s trademark trapezoid grille and add turbocharge.
In 1978, the company introduced the Saab 900, which was to become its best-selling model.
In the same year, Saab teamed up with Fiat, going on to produce models under the brands Saab 9000, Alfa Romeo 164, Fiat Croma and Lancia Therma.
By the late 1980s, Saab was struggling to compete and financial pressures led to its sale to automotive giant, GM.
In 2010, GM sold Saab Automobile AB to the Dutch automobile manufacturer, Spyker Cars N.V. Following a failed attempt to sell to a Chinese consortium, Saab was reformed into a company named National Electric Vehicle Sweden (Nevs).
Nevs restarted production of an electric version of the Saab 9-3 Aero sedan in 2013.
However, this wasn’t enough to save the Saab marque. The company stopped producing cars under the Saab name in 2014.
