Love the car, it’s beautiful and breath taking. I agree with Alex740, let’s get the next gen 9-3 out there so people can see more than just a great concept.

Reminds me of a Judas Priest song. 🙂
But I would go for this one at the moment

I still love the PhoeniX more for what it is than for how it looks. But it still looks very good

I wish (after all the money problems are resolved, if they are resolved) that Saab could in fact build a supercar based on this. Given Spyker were a supercar builder I would hope this may one day be on the cards. That PhoeniX is awesome!
