We’ve seen some good retro-Saab ideas that were pretty much just photoshop ideas.
This is something different. This is something that someone really plans to build using a Saab 9-3 convertible as a base.
The project is being publicised and promoted by our mate Etienne from Belgium. Here’s the thrust of it:
It’s a modern reinterpretation of the 1960’s Saab 96 which will be built on a convertible 9-3’s platform. At this moment the project is only a sketch but this English company mean to develop a drivable prototype with 300hp that will be shown at the 2011 Goodwood festival of speed, to celebrate the jubilee of Erik Carlsson’s second victory in the 1961 RAC rally with the 96 number 1.
If the project goes ahead, it will be built by Snetterton Memories Ltd, and English company who specialise in designing and building vehicles inspired by prestigious popular ‘old-time cars’.
