The Sixten Sason designed Saab 93 powered by a longitudinally mounted 3 cylinder 748cc two-stroke engine developing 33 hp, was formally unveiled. Coil springs replaced torsion bars and a 12-volt electrical system was fitted. The 93 featured a completely new gearbox with just three gears. A Fitchel & Sachs Saxomat clutch was offered for the first time on the 1957 Saab 93, enabling clutchless gear changing between second and third gears. The Saab 93 was the first Saab model to be officially exported, primarily to the United States.
