Saab 9-5 CC in development

The new Saab 9-5 is already on sale and it stands a great chance at becoming a very successful model; after all not everyone can afford to buy a car from Audi , BMW , or Mercedes . It stands an even better chance considering that the Volvo S80 has lost its touch and Cadillac is a brand made more for the American market.

The Saab 9-5 sedan version will soon be joined by a station-wagon version which was something to be expected, but what if Saab Saab also offered the 9-5 in a CC (Combi-Coupe) version? A return of the legendary 5-door Saab 99 from 1978? This will be Saab’s answer to models like the Audi A5/A7 Sportback, the BMW BMW 5-Series GT, and, while we are ticking models off, the Citro├źn C6. Although an interesting idea, it will not be one that will be made into a production version before 2013-2014.

The Saab 99 Combi Coupe arrived on the US market in 1974. It was powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder longitudinally mounted engine that delivered a total of 100 HP and was mated to a four-speed gearbox. The car remained in production until 1978. We can’t wait to see the new version when it hits the floor.

Looks like there are similarities but not in detailed. The rear tail light has been well defined compared with Aston Martin Vantage. What else should we consider here?

I actually like the design. In all honesty Saabs were ugliest when they were an independent company. So even thought I will vomit after saying this, thanks for this one GM.

impressive looking car, but its rear tail light had some similarities on the Aston Martin Vantage’s tail lamp.

i’d buy this over any of the German competitors i love it

impressive looking car, but the front roof is too sharp and it pulled down the aggressiveness of the 9-5 CC.

it’s rear end has some similarities with Aston Martin Vantage.
