Angry What is this!

I'm real upset now!

I mean really, really upset!!

I can not believe this is happening.

If the VW:s company Skoda is taking the 9 x to production...DAMN



The pic wasn’t good-looking but that is obviously a design made by the Saab!

I'm upset cause of the design steeling! The mirrors, the front end, the valved front window, the roof top...I can go on but I won’t.

If they produce this car it will be hard for Saab to get these design stuff to feel Saabish. Only people interested in cars will know that Saab did this first.

Sad thing I guess...
But do you think this is not a problem? Enlighten me please

"I think he may have a large spoon"


Sounds rather young, so probably a "pusher". EPNS of course.http://images.google.com/images?q=tb...i/spoopush.jpg

Hmmm?

I think it's where we also burn all those billions of dollars we don't need.

darn it, my rebuttle was going to be that you lost a few yourself, but you aren't from the UK

Or are you saying that we lost 1700 young men in the spoon?

unfortunately you can say 1,700 young men AND women, what a waste of life.

the fact that no one cared to sympathize with the thread starter's views backs up my comment about his needless anger towards the situation. instead of contributing anything practical, the rest of you simply chose to be prejudiced and biased towards BMWs.

as for vector, similar design cues run rampant throughout the industry. being unique will not necessarily save a company nor will having similar designs draw the same attention. take for instance the hyundai sonata. it's strikingly similar to the tsx/euro-accord but it's not like people will associate greatness with design. as for saab, design, to the average consumer, does not sound like it's saving grace. Affordability on part of GM is.

Anyone notice the rear end of a new Jetta, and that of a Toyota Corolla, identicle? Never mind the rest of the car.

DougR, yes I am from the UK. born the 21st of June, 1947 at Guy's Hospital, London. Chose to come here many years ago but not married with French politics or lack of.. Just the wine women and song, no meant to say food.
Enjoy the life and taking my car out on the country roads..
My comment was unnecessary.

As for our 93 Bmer sans balls... let him continue to amuse the masses..
That is where he is from and where he feels at home.

If the cars they made were any good people might have a bit more respect for them.

Enough


Are you seriously surprised the passion for the marque that exists on a Saab forum?


How dull are the BMW forums then? Do they all rave about Hyundia's
