Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

As Saab's exclusive performance upgrade partner, Hirsch Performance designs products that emphasize the Saab brand values.
All products are designed to ensure that the fundamental characteristics of the original remain intact. What Hirsch Performance does is to emphasise and reinforce these qualities – without compromise in terms of reliability and practicality for normal everyday use.

Upgraded performance and sporty accessories accentuate the original Saab characteristics.
Hirsch Performance brings out the best in this high-quality brand – even more driving pleasure, even more individuality and even more style. Form is never just an end in itself; it is always a consequence of function. For instance, although the Hirsch Performance spoilers are unmistakeably stylish, their design was initially established in wind-tunnel tests.


Hirsch Performance combines sports car performance and everyday practicality.
Meeting legal standards is only the minimum requirement in product development at Hirsch Performance. Intensive laboratory and road tests ensure that the driveability, safety aspects and economic efficiency of the standard version are retained. The standard servicing intervals remain unchanged. All warranty obligations remain in force and Hirsch Performance vehicles can be serviced throughout the entire Saab service network.
