Saab 900 Turbo Commemorative Edition

In 1993 and 1994 in U.S. and Canada, there was a limited edition Saab 900 Turbo Commemorative Edition produced. These cars were built for the memory of the classic 900 style. The 1993 was a coupe and the 1994 was a convertible and this is the reason, why it is on my Saab convertible blog.

Look at it. This is tin porn pure.
