In its early years, Saab enjoyed a strong cult following based on its vehicles’ unique styling and interesting design features. General Motors’ purchase of the Swedish brand in 1989 should have been a good thing, but as GM moved to position Saab as a competitor for European luxury brands like Audi and BMW, much of that Scandinavian uniqueness was lost.

In the summertime, there’s a guy up the street from me who regularly drives past my house in a late 1960s or early ’70s Mercedes-Benz 230. It’s a gorgeous car, and looks to be in mint condition. That 230 model (W114 series, 1968-1976) is one of many Mercedes models that can be found in the E-Class family tree, Mercedes’ mid-sized cars.
The Range Rover is arguably Land Rover’s best-known model and the one that best represents the company’s reputation as a builder of high-end SUVs. The first generation vehicle was introduced in 1970; the second-generation wouldn’t appear until 1995. It was a relatively quick turnaround, then, when the Range Rover was redesigned again for a 2002 introduction in some parts of the world, wearing modern styling that still managed to echo that of the original 1970 model.
