Born from jets. Well.. not really. Saab obviously started with prop planes and worked their way up to Jets so it's debatable who the parents are. The product of the lineage has been a line of cars that shocked the world with different styling, proper front wheel drive handling and wicked fun driving.
The Saab 99 Turbo pictured here is the big brother of the latter 900 Turbos and really took Saab to new heights in the rally world. It was a very "win on sunday, sell on monday" kind of story and sell they did.
The 99 is one of those cars that everyone has a story about. This shirt adds to those stories with the after burning plot lines of the Saab 35 Draken jet fighter. The car may not have been "born" from jets.. but this one was in use when our featured car was roaming the forest roads of Sweden.
