High-performance 9-3 Turbo X from Saab

The new “Turbo X” auto of the 9-3 by Saab will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. With performance upgrades and visual tweaks the model is aspiring to the iconic Saab 99 and 900 ‘Black Turbos’. The current show will mark the 30th anniversary since the first Saab turbo model was shown in 1977 at the Frankfurt show.
The apparently new model could very well be a 9-3 Aero XWD pumping out over 300hp from its V6 engine. Maybe this could prepare the market for a permanent high-performance auto but for now unfortunately the hot Saab model will only be released in limited edition.
