After World War II, it wasn't uncommon for arms manufacturers to begin making other products. Jet maker Svenska Aeroplan A.B. (SAAB) was no different. In 1950, it went into the automobile manufacturing business.
Early Saabs, with their rounded bodies, were said to resemble the cross section of an aerodynamic airplane wing. Saab's first car, the 92, won a rally, the first of many over the years.
The 93, which was still in production until recently, was introduced in 1956, and the 95 three years later. Other popular models built throughout the years included the 96 and the 99. In 1977 the 99 became one of the first turbocharged cars produced.
In 1989 GM bought a 50% stake in Saab. In recent years, Saab offered the 9-3, a larger 9-2 sedan, as well as a smaller 9-2 hatchback, a family-sized wagon, and a luxury four-wheel drive vehicle. Saab no longer makes automobiles, but you can learn more about Saab vehicles on Saab's official website, where you can view Saab car photos and compare model specifications.
