I am going to (un)officially give the name Saab Bigfoot to the Saab 9-5 Coupe.
The Saab 9-5 Coupe doesn’t officially exist and whenever I’ve asked about the potential for a Saab coupe/hatch, I’ve been told it just wasn’t going to happen.
And yet there’s this:
The SaabNL Twitmeisters don’t post things without good reason. And to whet the appetite a little more, it’s apparently been seen twice in the last 5 days.
There was no photo to go with the sighting, though.
I have to force myself to remain skeptical about this. First of all, I’ve asked about this body style in the 9-5 range a number of times and it’s always been a (very) negative response. Second, whilst it would be a very attractive car, the number of sales would be limited and I find it hard to believe they’ve got limited sellers in their core business plan. And finally, until there’s a photo, and without knowing the source myself, one just has to remain a little skeptical.
The Saab 9-5 Coupe – it’s our bigfoot. Someone hunt it down or disprove it forever, please!
