The Saab 90 began in 1985, following the 99 model and continued until 1987 and was built in Uusikaupunki, Finland. This model was hybrid between a 99 front forward of the a-pillar, and the successor to the 99, the 900 in sedan style with a trunk after the b-pillar and was only available in Europe.

According to Wikipedia, there were 10 “limited edition models called the Saab 90 Lumikko (Snow Weasel). These models were all white and had extra trim.”
