    First Kill Saab 9-3 convertible

    I was sitting at a stop light yesterday and a green sabb pulled up behind me. When the light changed I took off, and the saab started tail gateing me then the started slowing down and then punching it and getting back on my tail. He did this a couple of times and then changed lanes and took off. At the next light we were both stopped and ended up side by side. The driver of the sabb started giving me revs and the old what up look. I decided what the heck, gave him a couple of revs back. When the light changed we hit it, I didn't get the best start and he jumped about a half a car on me, but it was a ded heat by the next light. He and his girl were ready to give it another go, this time I got a great start, to be honest my foot slipped off of the cluch giving me my best launch yet, chirped the tires and jumped out about a car and I had a car and a half on him a 80mph. I shut it down and he blew by me and kept going. Fun race, man those pea soup green saabs are ugly.
    mmmmmmmmmm, turbo!

    I assume it was an Aero Convertible (making 250hp). I'm sure you would have blown the regular 210hp model away.

    I am not really sure? When I pulled up next to him at the first light I was on the right side and the car said 2.0 T. I assume its a 2 liter turbo version but I don't really know much about saabs.

    2.0T = turbo 2L inline-4 210 hp

    Aero = turbo 2.8L v6 250 hp
