Djup Strupe and a Saab 9-3 V6

As you might know, the 2010 Saab 9-3 is not offered with a V6 engine. I don’t know and haven’t heard anything, but I imagine that could be the case with the 2011 model as well.
I’ve just heard some news from Djup Strupe, however, that gives V6 aspirants some small cause for hope. This one is unconfirmed at this time, but the source is well placed so it’ll be interesting to hear if there’s any further developments on this.
The news, as I’ve heard it, is that there is a reasonable overage of V6 engine stock and that a limited run of Saab 9-3 sedans and Sportcombis, with the V6 and auto transmission, is being contemplated at the moment.
There’s no other news as to what sort of package might be assembled around that drivetrain, but my own personal opinion is that it could be a good basis for a Viggen edition of a 9-3 or something similar to establish some credentials under the new ownership.
Anyway, take it as unconfirmed but well sourced for the time being and watch this space.
