This from the final item in a Boston Globe auto column:
Regarding the review of the new Saab 9-3 all-wheel-drive system, is that the same system that was in the Saab 9-2?
A: No. The Saab 9-2 was basically a Subaru WRX in Saab clothing. The new Saabs will feature the latest generation of Haldex all-wheel-drive systems.
I drove the 9-2 up the Mount Washington Auto Road, at full throttle. It was a blast. I drove the new Haldex on test courses in Sweden, and it was far superior. Saab, being a small company - even though it is owned by General Motors Corp. - plans to offset the costs of developing the system by allowing other manufacturers to buy it.
