Highway Passing: 1993 Saab 9000 Aero

It is extremely difficult to find a rust free Saab 9000 most anywhere in the USA.  Saab’s first large car has virtually vanished from the pages of craigslist- even in New England.  The Alfa Romeo 164, Lancia Thema, Fiat Croma, and 9000 all shared the same type four platform.  While the Thema has the cool Ferrari sourced engine and Alfa makes wonderful Busso music, it is the 9000 that seriously moves out.  The 2.3 turbo engine is one of the most underrated 4 cylinder engines of all time.  They can produce a silly amount of power with moderate modification and reasonable cash outlay.  A simple stage 1 ECU tune of the Trionic 5 software turns these cars into highway passing monsters.   The one weak spot to be aware of on Aero models was the TCS traction control system.  Find this 1993 Saab 9000 Aero for sale in South Vegas, NV for $2,900 via craigslist.  Tip from Fuel Truck.

The Recaro chairs have a reputation for being very comfortable, but typically wear poorly.  These chairs would benefit from some sand paper work and leather dye.  The oversized tail pipe looks as if it could be cut about four inches shorter so that it didn’t extend past the bumper so far.  The body on this car seems to have been spared from the ravages of road salt.
