The Saab 9-3 not only passed by 3 generations from 1998 to 2014, Sedan, Station Wagon, Standard and also as Turbo X version, but was also produced by 3 different manufacturers : General Motors (1998-2010), Spyker Cars (2011-2012), and NEVS (2013-2014).
Do you know that DNA Collectibles already reproduced a 9-3 model? Indeed, the first generation of the car, the Saab 9-3 Viggen Convertible, was even the very first car made by DNA!
Let’s talk now about the second generation, and more precisely the Saab 9-3 Turbo X Sedan. First of all, the Turbo X is a tribute to celebrate the 30 years of Saab’s turbocharging and was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007. About the engine, this car came with XWD (all-wheel drive) powered by 2.8-litre V6 / 280 PS (210 kW) with a six-speed manual and automatic gearbox.
Inspired by the Saab 900, the door panels, the dash, and the shift lever integrated carbon fiber in the design.
When driving on the streets, you can immediately recognize you are facing a Turbo X version, thanks to its anthracite front grill and fog lights surrounding. If you are coming from the rear side, then those anthracite details could be found on the trunk handle. The bi-tone wheels are a nice addition to its sporty look, especially with the Jet Black specific Turbo X color.
