Why did the Saab 900 use an old Triumph engine, and what amazing things did it do with it?

Published in Video

I live in the Pacific Northwest, that is the north west part of the United States. With evergreen forests, and the endless, endless rain, it was maybe natural that Scandinavian loggers moved here. 100 years later many of their ancestors were driving Scandinavian cars down Seattle streets, and many of them were Saab 900s. With it being a popular, well-loved car, it’s no surprise then it was Saab’s best-selling model, and it was maybe rather appropriate that the 900 sold over 900,000 before being replaced by the next generation model. Why did this large car use the same small 4-cylinder engine found in the Triumph Dolomite, and how did it fair against its Swedish rival, the Volvo 700 series? A special thanks to Graham Turner for the images of the 900 Carlsson.
