The Saab 900 was introduced in early 1979 and was similar to the existing 99 Combi Coupe, but with a longer more sloping bonnet, front spoiler and deeper windscreen. Although a number of minor changes were made to the Saab 99 and 900 models, the most significant revisions occurred in 1984 with the introduction of the Saab 90 to replace the 99 model, and the introduction of the Saab 900 Turbo 16. The Saab 90 is essentially a two-door model comprising the front half of a 99 and rear half of a 900, powered by a single carburettor version of the 1985 cc engine. Apart from various minor modifications, the 90 should be regarded mechanically as a 99 with 900 rear suspension. The Saab 90 was discontinued in October 1985 and replaced by the 900 2-door. At the same time the Turbo 16-valve 4-door Saloon was discontinued and the 900 2-door introduced. All Saab 900 models covered by this Saab 90, 99 & 900 manual were discontinued in October 1993.
