Must have been a different SAAB 95 to the one my boss had with a freewheel. That was weird, take your foot off the gas and it just kept going. Another boss had an early, very early, SAAB 99 turbo. The very epitome of not enough power instantly becoming TOO MUCH POWER on muddy roads. While driving it I never planted it in a ditch, but he did.
