    Jalopnik: The Saab 900 Turbo SPG Was A Hot Hatch



    Article by Jalopnik:

    The Saab 900 Turbo SPG may in fact be the most underrated performance hatchback in history. While most believe the Volkswagen GTI to be the grandfather of the hot hatch, truth is, while VW was still relying on a measly 1.8-liter four to generate power, Saab was dishing out fire-breathing, front-wheel-drive turbo compacts ravenous enough to gobble up two GTIs in a single bite.

    It was a most unusual, torque-steering factory-boosted machine from Sweden that resembled Darth Vader’s helmet on wheels. Personally, I still firmly believe that the 9-3 Viggen is the best performance Saab out there. But purists say the SPG is the holy grail.

    I read that, and the other with a different car under the same collector.
    There's some Saab love on Jalop. More so on the editorial than the comments. They are still crankin' out articles about 'em though . . .years after their alleged deminse!
