Carpix have been kind enough to send me a full size photo showing the rear badge of the Saab 9-3x vehicle photographed in northern Sweden in the last few days.
With the name settled, you can now resume your normal whining about how this car is too little, too late, etc.
Personally, I’m with PT on this issue:
Just a foot note for those who have their knickers in a twist about this car. Some Porsche-o-philes had the same reaction to the Cayenne and dittto for the X5 and ML series. All of those cars have basically bankrolled their respective companies to enable the ongoing production of their “true” models like 911s and M3s. Saab needs all the models and range-width it can get with a minimum of expense so please save your bleeding hearts and 4wd-phobia for someone else. If you want this company to hang around, you have to support this car and others like it. Its too late to be sitting on the fence and debating the merits of what is or is not art.
‘Support’ in this context will be different things to different people. Some will ‘support’ it by buying it. Some will ‘support’ it by just thinking it’s good to have it around.
There are no finger-snap solutions to Saab’s car range. This is a step in the right direction. One of many steps that are needed, but a step nonetheless.
I think this is a great step, and I’m looking forward to seeing it for myself.
