  An air "slicer", intended to keep the rear window clear, is introduced on the Saab 95 in March. It also gained the same instrument panel as the 96. From August the 95 came with silver-grey wheels. All 1961 models now had key activated starter motors - gone was the starter Cord and toggle beneath the dash panel. The Saab GT750 is now built on the Saab 96 chassis.
