The project

I am a SAAB-entusiast who fancy the SAAB 96, especially the longnose bulit 1965-67.

This project is about modifying this icon classic and keep the most of the cars characteristics at the same time.

The general idea is to make the car in line with what could have been produced by SAAB in that era e.g. as a exibithioncar or a limited edition with a twist. The performance will be upgraded: engine, chassis, brakes etc. Yes, the car will be faster than original and have better roadholding, but I have no ambition to build a superfast streetracer. This project is more about stance and design and the joy of building something unique. The car will be built to be street legal.

To sum up: An old school sleeper with potential to surprise hot hatches and sportcars in the fast lane.
