This morning, a day after we reported GM's keeping options open on Saab beyond December 31st, Automotive News reports GM will restart some production lines in January including the 2010 Saab 9-5. So Saab's alive. For the moment anyway.
The Swedes have done an excellent job keeping the pending 2010 Saab 9-5 tightly under wraps, with only the faintest hints as to its final look. Too bad these renderings leaked onto the web.
These images of a covered-up 2010 Saab 9-5 Wagon come from Saab's "showroom of the future" and they reveal a deeper-grilled familiar Saab face, sweeping headlights and a dollop of chrome.
The 2010 Saab 9-5 hit the Nordschleife Nürburgring for some tuning, which means new photos to sate your need for Swede. The car looks much bigger, and what's that we see? A hatch?
Saab, which is trying to quit GM, has revealed its plan for the future: to be the "Apple of car brands" by building cars like Apple builds computers.
Saab is exploring breaking free from GM. This would include moving the majority of production to Trollhattan, a move backed by the Swedish government and the Swedish Chef.
