So, Spyker still really wants to build the SUV!

One last word on the PoeniX (have to see it in real life): The 9-5 II certainly has a better design than either the previous 9-5 and the 9-3, which both, at least in their initial incarnations, looked uninspired, imho. But still, I found the 9-5 to be a bit on the conservative side, lacking courage. This cannot at the least be said of the PhoeniX.

There were people commenting “I thought Saab was dead”, “I’m certain I read that GM closed Saab” etc. and some people even answered them and explained more. The PhoeniX has a radical design, production-ready state of the art technology like hybrid torque vectoring rear axle, regen. breaking, start/stop, low fuel concumption… Read more »

The presentation is excellent by all three representatives, brief, concise, containing all the central elements, and symphatetic. Two points: Do not exaggerate the contribution since the departure from GM. Saab was not in ashes a year ago, It inherited three fully developed new models – the 9-5, the 9-5 sc and the 9-4x. The current leadership brought it into production, which is great, but without the developments under maximum benefit from global platfoms in the years before to chance to survive. With respect to the Phoenix, the platform or technology side is very good. Small turbocharged engine, eXwd, the IQuon… Read more »
