Note: the watermark in the lower right does not appear in the final print.
The lines of the vintage Saab 93 sports car remind me of fine tooled leather so I re-imagined that this car was redesigned by a luxury leather brand such as Coach.

The Saab 93, pronounced ninety three, was an automobile manufactured by Saab that was first presented on December 1, 1955. It was styled by Sixten Sason and had a longitudinally-mounted three-cylinder 748 cc Saab two-stroke engine giving 33 hp (25 kW). The gearbox had three gears, the first unsynchronised. In order to overcome the problems of oil starvation on overrun (engine braking) for the two-stroke engine, a freewheel device was fitted. In 1957, two-point seatbelts were introduced as an option. The 93 was the first Saab to be exported from Sweden, with most exports going to the United States. A Saxomat clutch and a cabrio coach (large cloth sunroof) were available as options.
On September 2, 1957 the 93B was introduced. The original two-piece windshield was also replaced with a one-piece windshield.
