Produced for two decades the Saab 96 was a development over the earlier made Saab 92 and was larger than her predecessor.
The Saab 96 had a more aerodynamic shape, more luggage space area and comfortable seating for 4 adults.
When it was first launched, it had a 3-cylinder 2-stroke 38 hp 841 cc engine. After few years and more development the engine was modified to give 42 hp. Then in 1967, a V4 engine was introduced with Ford made Taunus V4 1500 cc engine. Eventually Saab started making their own V4 engines.
This model has the history of being the longest produced model of any Saab. Not just that, but the Saab 96 also helped the brand to gain a lot of respect from other automobile makers after it started making headlines in the world of compeptive rallying.
Finally the last of the Saab 96 rolled out on 8th January, 1980 in Finland when legendary Finnish driver Erik Carlsson drove the car from there to Trollhaettan Saab Museum, where its stands today.
The last Saab 96 was preceded by the Saab 99.
