Automotif DXIV...

Saab's 99 evolved into the 900 for the 1978 model year. Like its predecessor, it had a longitudinally-mounted four cylinder motor up front, driving the front wheels.

The 1987 Saab 900's got a facelift, with integrated bumpers and a more aerodynamic nose.

The 1991 900 Turbo, like this Beryl Green Metallic convertible, got a displacement bump for its 16V turbo inline four, to 2.1L. Now rated at 140 SAE net, the 900 Turbo was actually a fairly sprightly car for its era, although the convertibles were burdened by an almost 300 pound weight penalty over the coupes.
