Saabs United procured some rendered versions of the coming Saab 9-5 that are purportedly from Saab itself. While computer renderings must be viewed with a few packets of salt sprinkled on the screen, if you compare the 9-5 sedan render with a spy shot of the rear end of the actual car, the similarities look promising.
The wagon rendering is simply too brutally sexy to be believed, and so -- only in order not to have our hopes dashed -- we refuse to believe it. If Saab did have the gumption to design such a car, and Koenigsegg does have the wherewithal to properly market it, then we might just have a proper Swedish car company on our hands again. The 9-5 sedan arrives at this year's Frankfurt Auto Show and goes on sale this year, with the wagon following next year.

      Shows saab had a future and also what Gm missed out on when they crapply managed Saab, now Fiat should buy them.

      Want!

      ...Although with that said, there's something very Audi-ish going on with the sedan, something with the wheels and back end...dunno why..

      This has been posted on burlappcars.com for several days now. I noticed that there are more things on other websites than on Autoblog. I really like this site but most times I find myself having to go to other sites to get more info.

      I'm still excited for this car, but now that the top engine is supposedly only the 3.6DI as in the CTS or Lacrosse, I'm wondering exactly how this car, styling aside, will set itself apart.

        sadly, he's too busy eating muffins to tell his own joke.

      That actually looks really good...

      The 'photos' look a bit odd, a bit of photoshopping perhaps? If they can sort out some of the radius issues around the DLO and Backlight I think the wagon version could be looking quite cool.

      I like how they are revisiting the sedan-coupe Saab - I think the rear will be quite interesting.

      I love Saabs, but that rendered picture is the ugliest car I've seen in quite some time.

      Saab often talks the talk but never walks the walk with their concepts and 'rendered specs'... i'm sure the 9-5 will be promising but i'm just not getting my hopes up yet either.
