Vehicle Overview

When you turn your car on does it return the favor?    Then look no farther! 
Local, dealer serviced, low mileage limited edition Viggen convertible.
Looking for something unconventional, eccentric? Here's a machine that hides its ignition switch in the cup holder. Here's a machine with a teeny four-cylinder engine hooked up to a turbocharger the size of a Shop-Vac. Here's a little drop top convertible that looks like no other car on the road. Here's the Saab 9-3 Viggen.
Face it, Saabs are an acquired taste, like single-malt Scotch and reggae. The Saab is one last cry of protest in an increasingly androgynous world.
Slip behind the wheel of a Viggen, and find a chairlike leather seat, a chin-high instrument panel and windowsill, and a shifter and ignition switch located in a pit below your right hip. Sniff the distinctive odor of buttery-soft Saab leather, and you can be in only one place on the planet.
It goes not exactly like its Swedish-fighter-plane namesake, but it's plenty quick enough to get it into the high-six-second range from 0 to 60 mph and to tie for first in this group from 0 to 100 mph and to be the winner from 0 to 120 mph (where the wonderful Whoopee Cushion turbo shows its muscle).
Once the shifter is mastered and the flexy chassis is understood, one can fairly fly in a Viggen. Imprudent throttle punches in slow corners can produce nasty lunges of torque steer, but once straightened out and with the turbocharger in full play, the Viggen is definitely a hoot to drive.
It's cool that Saab has refused to accede to so-called contemporary styling and such nuances as four-wheel drive, naturally aspirated V-6s, or a swoopier, more aerodynamic body style. In a world of automobiles that only small boys and hard-core automotive writers can tell from one another--think Japanese cars--the Saab steadfastly clings to its roots.

For the unrepentant Saabistas and for those who have not forgotten George McGovern and the plight of the snail darter, this is a source of pride and comfort. For others, it is quaintness that is rapidly descending into obsolescence.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a classic Saab. it's not the same but it gives the same feeling.
