Saab 900 Convertible

The 900 had already been around for eight years when Saab took a tin-opener to it in 1986, creating the long-running 900 Convertible. For anybody who craved an upmarket family soft-top but who disliked the Germanic feel of a BMW or Audi, the handsome Saab was an ideal solution.

Even when the aged 900 line-up was replaced by the second-generation model in 1994, the old-style convertible continued for another year. Now though, values are rising; £1500 might buy you an original 900 Convertible that needs minor work, or you could spend the same on a ‘MkII’ model in better condition.

No Z3?

I regained 20 years of youth when I bought my copper red 2.0i, love it. It sticks to the road like glue. There's no better feeling than having the wind in your hair and a responsive pedal under the right foot.
No problem with spares or repairs, because of the number of these cars out there the prices stay low.
