5 Saab Sports Car Models to Choose From

January 27, 2012

You might hear that the auto insurance for a Saab sports car have a high premium, but there is a definite give and take on it. They are sporty, but are often classified as luxury cars rather than sports cars. In addition, they are among the safest vehicles on the road. Both of these things help to bring the premium down. Still, the high cost of parts should there be a claim works against you and tends towards a high premium. That just leaves the choice of picking the right Saab sports car from the options. Mind you, they don't have any current models that really qualify as sports cars, so you'll need to get a pre-owned vehicle.

  • Saab Sonett V4. There were a couple predecessors to this vehicle--the Sonett I and Sonett II--but both were produced in extremely small numbers. That means they are far more collectible to ever be considered a viable option for the average person. The numbers of this one were still low, but it was a production car in the late 1960s
  • Saab Sonett III. The Sonett III was produced in larger numbers than any of its predecessors. Over 8,000 of them were made in the first part of the 1970s
  • Saab Sport. With several variants over the years, the Saab Sport was produced in the 1960s
  • Saab 96. Produced for a couple decades, the Saab 96 underwent several changes over that time. It was eventually replaced by the Saab 99, but over half a million of the 96s were built. They may not be the most obvious choice for a "sports car," but they were definitely sporty
  • Saab 99. Again, this is not an obvious choice as a sports car--they even had a station wagon version. Still, the car (especially in the turbo version) had some power and that makes it qualify as a sports car. There were over half a million of this car produced, too

Saab might not be the first choice when it comes to picking a sports car. Certainly they are far from commonplace, though. That sort of rarity (not to mention the safety ratings) makes them an interesting vehicle to own.
