Johann Heuschmid’s devotion and enthusiasm of SAAB is the basis for the positive development of HEUSCHMID. In 1980 his first tuned SAAB 99 Turbo started the long term relation to SAAB and the design and engineering of SAAB Rallye cars. HEUSCHMID designed parts and systems to enhance SAAB cars followed. Such as: charged air intercooling systems, internal ventilated brake discs, high performance suspension systems with anti-roll-bars, interior and aerodynamic kits.
The committed Rallye driver attended Stages of the European Rallye Championship on his own developed and prepared SAAB 99.
In 1983 the first HEUSCHMID models the HS 1 and HS 2 were presented to the public. HEUSCHMID had its own booth at the IAA in Frankfurt/Main.
