Neat article. Crazy they lowered the Compression ratio so much. Although they were fully aware the engine could handle more.
"The 16-valve engine has demonstrated tremendous potential"

Also interesting is the writer suggesting it be called the "Road Viggen"

Wow, that was a great read. So many interesting things.

I can only imagine what saab would been like today if the EV-1 had went into production, and subsequent models based of what they learned with that car.

Also there was mention of the precursor to night panel in there as well.

I know I'm not the only one who is of age or older that would still try to crawl into that C900 Power Wheels thing. Hell I think I have a denim jacket somewhere too.

Had Saab not ran out of money, and GM not bought them they might have stuck to this sort of design philosophy, and there would be a modern day 45 degree I4 with a trans still mounted under the motor. Would have been interesting anyway.
