The Saab 94 Sonett (the word Sonett is derived from Swedish Så Nätt which means “it’s pretty”), was produced during the years 1955-1957.
This first generation model was named Sonett as it looked ‘very pretty’ in the eyes of Rolfe Mellde, a Saab engineer who toiled very hard to produce Sweden's first car that could be used to compete in European races. Saab also funded this limited budget car project with an aim to sell in the lucrative American market.
This Sonett I model had a fibreglass body with a 3-cylinder 750 cc engine giving a power output of 67.5 hp and weighing little more than 500 kg. The original idea was to produce about 2000 cars but racing competition rules changed and Saab had to give up this project after producing just six cars between 1955-1957.
