The future of Swedish automaker Saab is still up in the air, but that hasn’t dampened the spirits of Saab enthusiasts that still love their cars. Flash Engineering has just unveiled the 9-3 TTA race car that will compete in the Swedish Racing Elite League this year.

In a way it’s nice to see that Saab, at least for now, will live on through racing enthusiasts. The aggressively-designed 9-3 race car sports a nice widebody kit typical to race cars, along with a vented hood, rear diffuser, and your necessarily large rear spoiler. Four of these 9-3 racers will be built and raced by Team Tidö. The team hasn’t finalized the driver lineup, but we can probably expect to see Jan Nilsson, Mattias Andersson, and Linus Ohlsson piloting the machines.

Saab fans will have more to cheer about this season though, as the 9-3 TTA race car will go head to head with the recently announced Volvo S60 TTA car. Jan Nilsson, Flash Engineering Managing Director, probably says it best: “I have longed for 40 years to see the fight between Saab and Volvo on the race tracks. It becomes reality this summer and my biggest dream is to get all Saab fans to the TTA races to cheer us on.”
