Saab Car/Truck Body Parts
Saab Automobile is a Swedish automobile maker that was owned by S.A.A.B, an acronym for the Swedish word meaning The Swedish Aeroplane Company. However, in 1990, the automobile division of SAAB was bought by General Motors. General Motors still utilizes the manufacturing facilities in Sweden, producing the Saab 9-3 and 9-5; however, the manufacturer has moved the production of the Saab 9-7X SUV and Saab 9-2X to the United States and Japan, respectively. As well, the production of the next generation 9-3 has moved their production to Germany. Thus the Swedish automobile is becoming much of an international or global manufactured automobile.
Earlier models of the Saab, the V4's and the Saab 99, were very successful in the rally sports world. Most notable was the Saab 96 that was driven by Erik Carlsson in the sixties in the RAC Rally and the Monte Carlo Rally. Winning the RAC Rally two consecutive years and placing in many other Rallies, the Saab made a huge name for them selves as a fast and performance induced automobile. Besides the claim to fame in the racing world, the Saab was also the first ever automobile that ever mass produced vehicles containing turbochargers. As well, other famous firsts for the Saab automotive manufacturer includes the 1980 introduction of the APC or Automatic Performance Control, as well as in 1983, the 16 valve turbocharged engine. Throughout Saab's history the manufacturer has introduced other engineering feats for the automotive industry.
All modern Saabs set themselves apart from other vehicles, containing a floor mounted ignition. Saab's views on safety for their driver's are their reasoning for putting the mechanism in the floor, as well as the roomier cabin for the driver. But perhaps the most prominent reasoning the ignition is located in the floor stems from Saab's long relationship with the airplane arena, which always houses the throttle controls in the floor.
