I wish the seller was more forthcoming on the rough spots, but looks like a solid project.

Thats not a whale tail sploiler, and from the pics I can't even confirm that its an SPG at all. I smell a huckster.

Any insight on the turbo hurting transmission comment?

Won't be able to touch another for under $8,000....except for all of the ones I see well under $8k.

This guys comes across as knowing absolutely nothing about these cars? "The kind of turbo that doesn't hurt the transmission"- what? What does that even mean.

Per the person above, it's not the turbo that hurts the transmission on these, because they wear out on the N/a 900S versions as well. It's the transmission itself, the synchros, et al.

I'd be wary of this guy, but for $1100 it is what it is.

....which is a non SPG parts car...

And the bit about the turbo is complete BS.

Thanks for pointing out the flaws in this one. I am not a Saabista, just thought a SPG would be interesting to my fellow GRMers. Now I know...
