Yes, Saab is dead :-( That is why I have been moving into Audi/VW and BMW is the last few years. Saab sold cars for more than they cost to make. You got a great car, but that is not the way to run a business. They were ahead of their time, 4 cylinder turbo charged engine brought to the market 25 years too early. Now even BMW is going to 4 cylinder turbo charged engine :-) Its a great way to make good power and have good fuel economy.

I think you would be quite surprised if you drove in or raced in any of my Saabs. They always shock people. That is the main thing I loved about the T5 Saabs, you could make 600bhp out of a 2.0 engine with stock internals :-) Nothing like looking at the shocked faces as you pass them in a Saab :-)

Now its a new day for me, time to see what I can do with the BMW platform
