Wrong info! that's for a EMS not a turbo.
BHP is 145 and torque is 177 lbs ft.
Also the car shown is a 2 door. SAAB never made a 4 door 99 turbo.
I think I should know as you have shown my car

"The first turbocharged production car where the turbo truly added useful extra power unlike the Chevy Corvair and the Oldsmobile"
I think you are forgetting about: 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo, 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo, 1975 TVR 3000M Turbo.

The first turbocharged production car where the turbo truly added useful extra power unlike the Chevy Corvair and the Oldsmobile.
I found several weight data (1130, 1148, 1210, 1234, 1260 kg) so I've choosed the middle one.
The 0-60 mph time is tested.
The 0-100 km/h time is a factory claim, AMS tested 9.2 s.
