Note, I have the pictures of the 9-2X in the 9-2X section (http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22530)

Here are some photos of the new 9-3 Concept car. It's really interesting, has a glass roof, intresting car rack, and completlely redesigned interior.

I think the 9-3x was on a better track. As far as styling goes I think it needed some work. The 93 looks different but reminds me of a volvo, dodge magnum, or subaru wagon. The 9-3x seems like a great idea (the ultimate sport utility vehicle... similar to the original sport ute the 900)... but I would totaly redesign its appearance. I would give it hints of retro styling like the 99 Turbo. Smoother lines, wider profile, more upright hatchback than the 99, and a less wimpy front end than the 9-3x or 93. I'll have to draw up some sketches with my 5th grade tallent (im 20.. no laughing) and maybe one of you talented designers can turn it into an idea.

Instead of complaining about the Saab thats handed too us by GM, maybe the Saab community can develop a design of its own. Who better to create the Saab of the future than those who remember the thrilling past. We do have quite a few members here at SC and that can give us some persuasion power. Just a rendom thought out of left field.

I don't. But to me it's a dead ringer for the last-gen Ford Focus wagon :(

I don't say very many nice things about the newer SAAB models but I really dig this one. I hope they produce it. Screw this stop-gap nonsence, this is the car SAAB should be making NOW.

Kinda looks like a Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix roof line.
GM has partnered this car with Toyota.
mmmmmmmmm now GM wouldn't do that to a Saab now would they????

that's what saab was going for. when you see halo's you think of bmw. saab wants us to think of them everytime we see that.

Retains the 2 fundemental style design cues that have been with Saab a very long time, something referred to as the Saab hockey stick, the almost nike swoosh shape from the rear pillar then under the door glass to the wing tops, see below,

Also look at the 99 below, that hockey stick shape is quite clear,

The other feature is the oval door handle detail.

I like the look of the 9-3sh, rocks for me! :p . Bin the glass roof to be picky, I'd rather some metal there, imagine it with the new 4x4 system and the Holden 3.6 v6 twin turbo.
