This could very well be the next-generation Saab 9-3. The sketch was part of a package that Saab presented to the European Investment Bank last year in hope of some backing.
With Saab’s future possibly on the mend, thanks to Pang Da and Youngman purchasing the brand for 100 million euro over the weekend, we have to wonder what vehicles will make up Saab’s future showroom.
This sketch is said to preview the next-generation Saab 9-3, showcasing an all-new body design. The back features large wheel-arch haunches blending into a tapered rear hatch layout, while the front seems to offer Saab’s current design language with large headlights and a traditional nose.
There’s been no mention of possible powerplants for the model, however, reports say that a fastback and convertible version might be in the mix. The new model is expected to hit the market some time in 2014.
The sale of Saab from Swedish Automobile to Pang Da and Youngman is pending approval by Chinese authorities. Vehicle production is yet to recommence.
