Next 9-5

Recommended Posts

not sure how real this is, but it does look a fair amount like the Aero X concept, which is supposed to be the inspiration for the next 9-5. I think this is pretty hot, so go for it Saab.

Nice! I do kind of like the pointed front end though (makes me thing fighter jet). By the way, where did you get this sketch? This is the first 9-5 sketch I have seen.

I found it on Left Lane News, but also found this similar shot showing the sketch from the opening of the new GM Design Center in Germany, with Brian Nesbitt.

That looks awesome! The pointed front end gives it a bit more of a jet-like look to it. I hope the real thing looks something like this.

It's a hawt sketch. Very, very cool... and totally unique to Saab. They need this as the next 9-5 really badly. I hope the next 9-3 is as good looking.

I love it. This would the first all new 9-5 in more than a decade! It should be up to the levels of the Germans when it's launched.

That's a great looking sedan. Looks like a hybrid of Lutz-ian and Mauer's styling traits (tumblehome & stance for the former, blacked out A-pillar, hockeystick c-pillar, grille being the latter).

From this drawing, there's not one bad thing to say about this design. Fast track it, GM!

Much MUCH better than the Hyundaab 9-5 we have right now.

Pop in a fresh announced 3.6L DI and it should fly. Stay FWD though, please.

That... Is.... Awesome...

...and this is coming from a guy who has never liked SAAB's in his life.

A car this great will certainly attract new customers.

Holy sh!t. If this is the next 9-5 it would sell faster than a new hooker on the corner. GM, PLEASE LET THIS BE THE NEXT 9-5. Then make the 9-3 look somewhat similar.

Let's hope it's not. It's a complete impracticle car are drawn. Trying fitting into the back. Does it even have a rear window?

Concept cars and especially concept car sketches mean nothing to me. Production cars are what count.

Yeah, it's a concept drawing, but given the Aero-X concept + this concept drawing, many of us SAAB

fans (and even those that are not) can see some SWEET stuff brewing from that "dead" Swedish brand.

Yeah, I sure hope so.

Could that car be a hatchback or a liftback, or am I'm still thinking "Saab 900" too much?

You are what we like to call a "beancounter"

Neat, but it doesn't really say "SAAB 9-5" to me. It says, "Pontiac G8".

That is so totally awesome!

SAAB will be big... and sooner than the pundits think!

(The only thing I don't dig is the combination of the headlamps/outer grille flanks.)
