Over the Back Fence: Saab to Redesign 9-3 for 2008

The boys at Trolhattan Saab say they have a line on Saab's next 9-3. According to the T-Hats, the Saab 9-3 will get a major facelift and an all-wheel-drive option for 2008, though will remain on GM's global midsize (Epsilon) platform. Design elements from the company's 2002 9-3x Concept (pictured) could see their way into the new niner, which they say will be unveiled in June 2007 in Sweden. According to Edmunds Inside Line, however, GM says a new 9-3 isn't on the docket until 2010. Still, an updated 9-3 can't come soon enough for Saab; but will it be enough to save it?
