Even though it shared most of its bodywork with the Fiat Croma and Lancia Thema – also designed by Italdesign – the sensible and Swedish Saab 9000 stood out among the rest. It was more luxurious, more spacious, and safer than both the Fiat and the Lancia thanks to heavier side impact protection. It even featured seats that were allegedly inspired by Jim Henson’s Muppet show, Pigs in Space, which is weird.
