You do not get to top end over 1/4 mile. I'm not a standing start kinda guy. Nobody should be except, pehhaps with a Viggen. I don't take the Saab to top end - ever. But if ever the highway hits me where this can be done as per Autobahn, then possibly I will, once.
I do, however, have high altitude driving to do. Lots of it. It is quite a revelation on one particular stretch (highest point of land east of the Rockies on the TransCanada Highway) just which more expensive cars do not match the Saab on that upgrade, even at 70-80 mph.
And what is there on the Prairies but long, straight, deserted (except in holiday season) highway?
One of the most impressive (unpopulated) stretches of highway in the world lies between Lake Louise and Jasper, both in Canada's national park system and ALL at high altitude.
If I had bought a Saab Viggen, which I didn't, then I would have taken the free driver training course purchasing a Viggen offered.
My dog thinks I am a genius, even if you don't.
I think the most telling comment from the Saab board on the C-merc was on obsolete technology - supercharging, even if Saab's new variable compression engine (30% better gas mileage with 30% less emissions at no loss of power) will require a supercharger.

Next. For $5,000 - $10,000 less I'll consider a 2003 Accord V6 with a possible 5 speed.
