NO RESERVE - 1993 Saab 900 SE Low Pressure Turbo

Highlights


  • Manual, turbo drivetrain
  • Comprehensive history file
  • Largely original

The Appeal


Saab’s 900 is a cult favourite for very good reason. Uniquely styled and exceptionally well engineered, they appeal to those who like to drive something a little different, but enjoy the restrained personality of Saab’s cars.

This particular 900 is presented in largely original condition, with a very detailed service and maintenance record. It’s in need of some restoration work, but would make for an excellent winter project - and at the end you’d have a fine example of one of the coolest cars of the 90s.

Summary


We love a Saab, and the original 900 is one of our favourite models. Increasingly rare, these quirky but beautifully built machines are lovely to drive and make for excellent daily classics.

This example is in good mechanical condition, with a complete and original interior. With some bodywork and attention to the underside, we think this could soon be very smart indeed. If you're after a bit of a project for the winter, maybe to prepare for next year’s show season, this would be a great option.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
