The Saab 96 is an automobile made by Saab. It was introduced in 1960 and it was produced until January 1980. First it had a 841 cc, 38 hp (28 kW) three cylinder two-stroke engine. The front was taken from the Saab 93, but the rear was new and gave the 96 more space and a larger rear window. In 1967 the 96V4 with a Ford four stroke 1498 cc V4 engine, originally developed for the 1962 Ford Taunus 12M, replaced the two stroke 96. The V4 engine produced 65 hp (48 kW) and the car made 0-100 km/h in 16 seconds.
