Flying Swede: 1996 Saab 9000 Aero

The Saab 9000 was the last of a long line of Scandinavian engineered front-drive luxury sedans from the internal madmen at Saab, designed before it was swallowed up by the General Monster.  It was the product of a joint project between Saab and Fiat called the Type Four platform, and in production was the Lancia Thema, Saab 9000, Fiat Croma, Alfa Romeo 164.  But only the Saab offered Giorgetto Giugiaro styling, a turbocharged engine, body kit, Recaro seats,
sport suspension and 16-inch wheels.  Find this 1996 Saab 9000 Aero offered for $4,000 in Denver, CO via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.

Tipper Zach writes: Price is high but is post-95, therefore has the preferred non-TCS
throttle body failure mode pending.  Wrong DIC installed.  Mileage isn’t
bad.  Would want to see underside with its CT/VT roots.  Would rather
have the tan interior like this one than the charcoal grey that is in
mine.  Drivers seat certainly needs some love.

The 9000 Aero is powered by a 2.3 liter turbocharged version of Saab’s
B234 engine that is boosted to 225 horsepower with a Mitsubishi TD04
turbo. The little Saab 4-banger will make torque and horsepower anytime
the turbo is spooled up, with a bonus of good fuel economy when the
snail is relaxed.
