(In 1937 startte Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget (SAAB) in Trollhättan, Zweden als fabrikant van militaire vliegtuigen. Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog, ligt de keuze voor het maken van auto’s voor de hand. Immers met de opgedane expertise op het gebied van de luchtweerstand in de vliegtuigbouw heeft Saab een goede voorsprong in de automobiel wereld. Op 10 juni 1947 ziet het eerste prototype het licht: de 92001 ofwel UrSaab, ontworpen door de Saab-fabriek in Linköping. Deze auto heeft naast een revolutionaire aerodynamische vormgeving allerlei vernieuwende zaken zoals een tweetaktmotor, voorwielaandrijving en een kooiconstructie. In 1949 rolt de eerste in serie geproduceerde Saab 92 van de band. Dit type wordt geproduceerd tot en met 1956. Van dit type zijn twintigduizend exemplaren gebouwd.)
