Terry named this 'Sabrina' .... bit of a play on words, I expect.

2007 SAAB 9-3 Aero Cabriolet.

Price was too good to refuse, being 70k AUD off the '07 listed price.

Quaintly...although SAAB is Swedish....this one's German...and the Engine was made in Port Melbourne [Australia] just a 'couple of miles down the road' from me.

Fitted with a Hirsch performance chip the 2.8l V6 Turbo Intercooled produces 202kw [276 hp] at 5670 rpm - or 90% of the 400 nm of torque from 1600 rpm onwards.  They typically don't 'rate' in pursuits such as 0 to 60 times as the first 2 gears of 6 are torque-limited to protect the transmission from ...er .... abuse.

SAAB's are massively underrated and/or overlooked by people looking for performance motoring - and more fool them....keeps their prices down...

For the best-of-both-worlds we've kept 'Natasha' - the '91 SAAB 9000 Turbo [a Giugiaro design] too as it does seat 5 and with a hatchback it can carry all the 'crap' needed when loaded up with 4 Race Officials heading off to the GrandsPrix, etc...

So....

What's your ride? ....

'Natasha' is in the background....the '91 SAAB 9000....

The DeLorean is my mate Dave's.  Incidentally...they are BOTH Giugiaro designs.  It's probably 'unfortunate' that the DeLorean only 'looks' the part..... the 9000 is both more practical....AND quicker...

I have a 2010 Ford Focus, fairly small economic car.  I have grown to love the thing, it's a really great car.  Drove it to Las Vegas and back, and got 42MPG for the trip.  Only problem I have had is with the mass air flow sensor going out twice already, but I haven't had to pay for it being replaced yet.
