The Saab 96 was the final evolution of the original aerospace derived and teardrop shaped Ur-SAAB. In typical Saab fashion, the 96 continued in production long after its planned replacement (the 99) was released, in fact the 96 continued in production through 1980. Today the 96 makes a great uncommon alternative to something like the VW Beetle and can be picked up for not a lot of cash.
