Time witness : a 1988 Saab 9000 print from the Stop magazine

The Stop magazine is a slovak car magazine. A very weird name for a car printed magazine, it should be "start" isn't it ? :) In these online ages his fame faded out "a little bit", but there were times it was the only one local printed magazine about cars. I loved Stop a lot many years ago.

This is a Stop scan from February 1988, the 9000 time.

The text says :
"The SAAB 9000 CD has broaden the Saab 9000 model range. A luxury limousine with classical lines. It offers an inline four cylinder 1985 cm3 engine with fuel injection and an intercooler, 16 valve head with dual overhead camshaft (DOHC). Saab offers a catalytic converter as an option.The version without catalyst offers 129 kW (175 hp) at 5300 rpm and 273 Nm torque at 3000 rpm. The version with catalyst offers a 119 kW (160 hp) at 5000 rpm and 255 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm."

It's amazing how they ignored any kind of marketing speach. Just raw basic facts and nothing else. It's not seen nowadays at all. Also that is why this is a pure time witness.
