Geneva '08 Preview: Is this the new Saab 9-1?

The Geneva Motor Show is coming in less than three weeks, and one of the world premieres at the show will be a new concept from Saab. In the announcement from GM, the concept is supposed to show "a further step in its continuing product range extension." Given that it's unlikely that Saab will expand its line with anything larger than the 9-5, and we already saw the 9-4x in Detroit, the most likely new model would be something below the 9-3.
According to Motor Trend, someone spotted a sketch of a MINI-like car while touring the GM E-Flex studio recently. So MT set artist Mark Stehrenberger to work creating a rendering of what a small Saab might look like. Is this wee Swede what Saab will be showing at their preview party in Geneva? As soon as we know, you will, but if I was a betting man it would bet on this 9-1.
