Images of New 9-5

I like the front, but the back looks sort of blah like the Subaru Impreza. I hope the interior is a winner.

GM finally gives Saab the product it needs to be successful just after it sells it off.

Not really a fan of the rear end on the sedan, but the Combi is hot.

What rear? Where's a rear shot of the sedan?

saab manages to be distinct, classy, timeless, elegant, unique, and trendsetting while holding onto tradition, being detail rich, and not going overboard. it's going to be one of the best looking luxury cars our there. the profile and shape of the wagon are hot. it's form over function and holding the hand on styling that gets saab where they are.

it may not be owned by GM, but it's sourced from there, complete with powertrains and suspensions.

I like it, too, looks very authoritative. I wish SAAB a long life, but I am glad GM sold them... something they should have done (carefully) long ago.

Not bad, but I would like to see the real meat.

ZL-1, do you think Frankfurt reveal is a possibility?

:yes:

Sad, isn't it?

I firmly believe that GM had Saab turned around with the new products.

Reminds me of Ford and Jaguar.

That's what every SAAB enthusiast website and a few mags here have said: Frankfurt 2009.

On another note, 9-4X mules were apotted again (and again in Belgium IIRC).

Yeah, Frankfurt makes sense, with sales soon after the reveal.

Any more news about 9-1 yet? Or now it is on indefinite hold.

IDK

If I was SAAB I'd be making sure the 9-5 and 9-4X are flawless, while trying to make sure GM selects a proper new owner for the company. Then it's all about the new 9-3: if GM's Delta2 is used, I wouldn't do a 9-1. Instead I'd offer a full 9-3 range: 9-3 sedan, wagon, and 3-door and 5-door hatches.

EDIT - From what I remember reading at Saabsunited, it seems potential investors who went to Trollhättan were shown something other than the NG 9-5 and the 9-4X. Don't know if it was a design proposal for the NG 9-3 but it'd make sense if it was...

Pics have been taken and the cockpit is driver oriented. Just don't expect fancy design like the LaCrosse's interior: expect a simple design.

Well that is what the the Swedes are known for...clean and simple. At least Volvo is.

I hope it is better than the barn burner of the previous generation.

I like simple design.

next 93 on a delta would make sense from the standpoint of the current 93 is cramped. the cruze apparently even has more room
