1985 900 turbo coupe Rally Car "The Green Machine"

After many years of dreaming of racing cars and riding a large chunk of metal through the woods at absurd speeds, the Saabworks Team finally built a car for Performance Rally competition. Starting with a broken-down 1985 Saab 900S, we created a turbo-charged, performance vehicle capable of attaining high speeds on rough roads.


The perfect shell... In 1985 and 1986 Saab imported a few hundred two door coupe 900's. Because of the angled trunk as opposed to the long sloping hatchback, this car is the lightest and stiffest Saab 900. These are pictures from the very beginning (dragging a sorry looking car home) all the way to the goal: Performance Rally Licensing School!
