Autozeitung and the Saab 9-5 SportCombi

German car magazine Autozeitung had a new issue out a few days ago and in it, they’ve published this image of the Saab 9-5 SportCombi.

I believe it’s a photoshopped image as I’m sure there aren’t any undisguised Saab 9-5 SportCombi’s running around like fully dressed cars.

It’s a darn good photoshop, though. Not the most flattering angle, but a darn good photoshop nonetheless.

Thanks to Alexandros for the scan.

Saabhuy claim Saab 9-2 sketch

UPDATE: Commenters have noted that Saabhuy have sourced this one from a Swedish paper, Vi Bilgare. I only saw the Saabhuy entry in isolation and treated it as coming directly to them

Short conclusion – nothing to see here. Bil Vulgare.

I know nothing and can therefore say nothing.

Saab 92 portion……But Golfhunter is stating that this image has been sourced from Saab and represents the new Saab small car that might coming in around 3 or 4 years from now. This is not the intended replacement for the Saab 9-3, but a smaller car that’s been mentioned previously as being a retro-inspired design (this image indicates that if authentic, Saab are not going down that teardrop-inspired path).

Apparently it will be based on the same platform as the Citroen DS3. As you know, PSA partnered with BMW on the design of the engine that Saab will be using in the replacement for the Saab 9-3.

You’ve seen a portion. Go to Saabhuy to see the whole banana.

As mentioned at the top, I know nothing so can’t pass any comment on the authenticity of the image.

Saab 9-4x Interior Spyshot

Our mates at Auto Motor and Sport in Sweden have picked up some more Saab 9-4x spyphotos.
This time the 9-4x was caught testing somewhere in northern Sweden and it’s almost completely nude – including the inside.

I’m diggin this!!
I’m not so hot on the steering wheel or the dial surrounds, but everything else looks very promising. You’ll see on the hi-res version (at AMS, see below) that the materials aroud the center console area look great. It’s quite Saaby, without doubt.
It’s almost got me lusting after an SUV. Almost. I definitely want to drive it.
Go over to Auto Motor and Sport and get a much bigger version of this image. Theirs is a massive 2400px wide. I’ve reduced it to 700px as it’s their image, reproduced with gratitude and their permission.
They’ve also got some exterior shots of the car, but there’s no doubt that this shot is the prize.
There’s a fair possiblity that you’re also looking at what will for the basis of the new Saab 9-5 interior, too. I’d imagine they will theme both of them in a similar manner.

Thanks AMS, and WooDz!
