More 9-3 and 9-5 imagery

The 9-5 photoshoppers have already had some fun and earlier today the 9-3 photoshoppers got to have some fun making the 9-3 look more like the 9-5.
Here’s another one in that tradition, an adaptation that combines a little of the 9-3’s current lights with the ‘light sabre’ across the back, a-la the new 9-5.
This one’s from one of our favourite design mates, Niklas Palm. Pardon my French, but he refers to this as the 9-3 ‘asslift’. And to the French, please pardon my English 🙂

2010 Saab 9-5 vs Saab 900
OK, this may be a longer bow to draw, but Radulf has sent this image in, excited about similarities between the 9-5 and the classic Saab 900.

It’s important to bear in mind that these are very different cars from very different times.
Having said that, I can see some links here with the hockey stick being in play, as well as the rear slope of the 9-5, despite it not being a hatch. It’s more similar than I’d thought when I saw it in isolation.
One’s already a classic and I have the feeling the other will go down as a classic in the future.

Saab 9-4x vs 2010 Saab 9-5 interior
When you see this is makes you wonder why Saab went to such lengths to cover up the interior of the 9-5. As it turns out, we’d seen 90% of it back in January 2008 with the Saab 9-4x concept.

Of course, acrylic is out in favour of materials that will actually work (I guess) and the switching is ever so slightly different, but the 9-5 is pretty much a production adaptation of the 9-4x interior.
I can tell you from personal experience that the 9-4x interior was a joy to sit in. If they get the interior materials right in this new car, then I’m sure it’ll be the same for the 9-5.
