leak Saab 9-5 wagon spyshot

OK, not a spyshot, per se. It looks more like a CGI from a brochure or presentation. I don’t know how have got hold of it and they’re not saying, but I can tell you one thing: It is accurate.

I can say that because I’ve shown my own leaked image in the past (how quickly we forget), which reconciles with this one quite nicely, and also because I’ve seen the car for myself – last year, in Sweden.

Here’s the image:


Of course, the Saab 9-5 wagon is still the best part of a year away from being sold, though we’ll probably see one in the metal before then.

It is a sexy beast from almost every angle but a troubling beast in one regard. I’ll be interested to see if your opinions agree with mine and therefore, will not share what troubles me.

I’ll take mine in a dark color with tinted windows, please.

Thanks to Thomas for the tip via email.

Autobild post 2010 Saab 9-5 CGIs

I have no idea if these are genuine CGIs or not, but I’m guessing they aren’t.
There’s the lack of vent around the bottom of the front quarter panel behind the wheel and the front airvents are all a little different to the official CGI’s we’ve seen.
Still, it’s always fun to look.
This image is from Autobild in Germany, and if you click that link you’ll get to a rear-end shot they’re hosting as well.
Thanks to Andrey for the heads-up about the shots!
Latest intel from Djup Strupe includes some very complimentary remarks about the interior of this car, as well as news of Bard Eker sightings around Saab design and a prolonged tour of the Saab Museum.

Tiago’s 2010 Saab 9-5 CGI tweaks

Tiago has tweaked his 2010 Saab 9-5 CGI based on the recent tail lamp spyshots published yesterday.
Aside from the car doing a 180, here are the tweaks as listed by Tiago:

  • Tweaked the rear light graphics,
  • Enlarged the rear windows a bit to match the spy pics,
  • Slanted the hockey stick a bit more,
  • Changed the base of the rear window where it meets the c-pillar,
  • Corrected the hood lines a bit, and
  • Rounded the top corner of the rear doors…

Nothing big, just several small things. 🙂

Previous iterations of Tiago’s CGI can be seen here.

Thanks again, Tiago!!!

2010 Saab 9-5 CGI – take 2

Tiago has done a few revisions to his 2010 Saab 9-5 CGI based on some comments and suggestions made to the post featuring his first attempt.
Here is the original image, which was featured here late last week. Tiago constructed the image around some of the spyshots that we’ve seen of the car so far as well as some of the new exterior design elements that we expect to see such as the 9-4x tail lamps, etc.
I should also mention that the image was considered convincing enough to be picked up by at least one international motoring website. Congratulations Tiago!!
And below is the slightly revised version.
You’ll see that the lower bump strip has been removed, as has the fuel filler door and the chunky exhaust outlet at the back.
The color has been toned down a little as well, to remove some of the reflection and contrast. The Saab wordmark has been added at the rear, too.
I can live without the bump strip (though I did like it) and the fuel filler being on the other side is only right. But I’ve got to say I’m truly sad to see the chunky exhaust pipe missing.
This is probably a more accurate reflection of what the exhaust would look like (i.e. tucked away) on most models that will be purchased but it’d be great if the performance models could get a feature exhaust like the one in Tiago’s first image.
A great looking car.
I’m really looking forward to see how close it is to the real thing.

Our very own 2010 Saab 9-5 CGI

Everyone seems to be showing their ideas as to what the 2010 Saab 9-5 will look like. Why not us?
As you know, we have a couple of very talented computer artists in our midst, and one of them’s whipped up a quick rendering of what he thinks the 2010 Saab 9-5 might look like.
Tiago do Vale is the guy responsible for the banner here at SU, as well as other artwork that I’ll get around to implementing some time in the future. I’ve shown a number of his CGI’s in the past, and he’s just sent along this one – a quick effort that I think looks quite desireable.
Hockeystick, clamshell, rear light strip – check, check, check.

My thanks to Tiago for this quickie.
