Automotive breeding theory – 2010 Saab 9-5

From a friend of Robert B’s.
An independent observation of the possible parents of the 2010 Saab 9-5.
Audi Saab breeding
I can see where he’s coming from.
Regarding the front (aka Audi) – There’s been some conversation in another post today about automotive frontal design becoming more generic between different carmakers. Simon Padian acknowledged this trend in my recent interview with him, citing the new pedestrian safety regulations as the main reason why. What you end up with is similar shapes amongst many cars (though not all) with different faces drawn on them.
Regarding the rear (aka the 99) – There really is a hint of 99 there where the rear window meets the trunk at the back. It’s quite noticeable when you see the car at the right angle.
Interesting theory.
