I have just received a hot tip that Car Magazine is looking to vote for the best “hot hatch” of all time. In their list of nearly 50 makes and models to choose from, the Saab 99 Turbo is listed and at this point is almost holding its own with a near majority of votes.

Please visit their website and vote for the Saab 99 Turbo, to ensure it’s the winner. The poll ends February 1st, so please send this around to everyone you know!

Update: The Saab 99 is still the leader, but a close second from a Lancia Delta may take the lead, so please cast your votes between now and February 1st, to ensure that the Saab 99 makes it to the “hottest hatch’ at Car Magazine’s poll!

    I was one of the first owners of the 1978 99 Turbo, and I was so in love with the concept of a “Useful” hatch, that I was not taken by the NG 9-3 when it came out in 2002. Once you have that utility, there is no going back.

    Thank you! As of this morning EST in the U.S., Saab is still above just 200 from Lancia, so keep the votes coming in!

    First Saab in 1976. In 1979 had a 99 turbo which was COOL! Saabs ever since, currently a 1993 900 convertible (low pressure turbo, yellow..)

    Well yah but there’s a little thing called a VW GTi…. having owned several of both, a tough call. They both set the bar at the low and mid/high range for overall utility, ease of use, reliability (well, somewhat)…..



    And BMWs comprise the rest, but alas, no hatches there, mate.
