The new technology was the Garrett T3 Turbocharger fitted to the 2 litre engine of the 'normal' Saab 99 Combi Coupe. The Garrett T3 unit added a decent 30bhp to the performance of the engine, an increase of almost 25%. On the outside the Turbo differed very little from its Naturally Aspirated brothers making it a real wolf in sheep's clothes. As the technology was new the 99 Turbo suffered from all 'disadvantages' of a Turbo, 'Turbo-lag' or a sudden power increase made the 99 Turbo a handful, but a fun handful to drive.
