I recently discovered a special edition 9-3 that I had been unaware existed.
For the 2002 model year, Saab produced a limited edition 9-3 to celebrate 25 years since the launch of their first turbocharged passenger car, the 99 turbo in 1977.
This Special edition was available in 3-door, 5-door and convertible forms, and featured a new 16” wheel design said to reflect that of a turbine wheel.
The interior specification had special leather and fabric seats, with the word “turbo” embossed into the seat backs, these seats are now probably the most sought after seats amongst enthusiasts of the 1st generation car, I know many owners would love to have a set in their cars!
The dashboard was also treated to a wood grain instrument surround to add a little extra luxury feel.
If you are a fan of the first Generation 9-3 then seeking out and cherishing one of these special edition may be very worthwhile. .
