Great looking car, no idea what they are normally worth but I think the buyer got a great deal.

I like how that article was published 3 months in the future. Must be a Saablorean.

They are odd cars, and that one looks to be in excellent condition from the pics. I got a chance to looks at one up close and talk to the owner last year at a cruise night.

They have a V-4 engine. The gas tank sits directly behind the seats; it's upholstered over.

They kind of look like a shrunk-down Bricklin SV-1. Especially that rear 3/4 picture, with the safety bumper sticking out.

1.7L 55hp stock! LOL

Looks like a fun candidate for a small block V8 swap.

Saab might not exist by the end of the year. Makes me saad.
