Saab’s new 2010 9-5 sedan has been a regular fixture in so many auto shows, we couldn’t even count them anymore. Despite its continued presence, we’ve yet to see the new 9-5’s five-door variant - a 9-5 SportsCombi or a 9-5 Estate, whichever you prefer.

Then, straight from a brochure, or maybe a line-up presentation, comes this image, albeit blurry, of what looks to be the Saab we’ve been waiting quite a while for. While there hasn’t been any announcements from Saab regarding this potential five-door vehicle, we’re still free to speculate, right?

So, we’re speculating that this could very well be the new 9-5 Estate and, should our hunch prove to be right, this ride feeds into our high expectations of the car quite well. We’re just hoping that Saab sheds some light on this matter, even if it’s just a sliver of what we can expect.

Or maybe this is already it, at which we’d like to ask you folks to give your two cents on the car. Neigh or Hey?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Now ask yourselves if you would fly on a Boeing if it’s selling point was *designed by drivers, only one of whom had flown on a plane before*. It’s time for Saab to die. Actually that time was a long time ago.

Really nice looking Saab coupe, of which I think would sell fairly good (for a Saab anyways) and could possibly even be somewhat competitive in the affordable Lux Coupe realm.

agree Saab has been known for it’s unremarkable safety features.. Saab is not contented with the safety they have in their cars. so they are making their some more enhancements to their cars.

Love the look of this car. Looks modern, tough and purposeful stance, with just about the right amount of sporty and SAAB retro touches, such as the dark A ar which evokes the SAAB 90’s windshield.

please don’t forget that Hirsch is the official tuner of Saab and is backed by the factory warranty.

I want to direct a musical based on this drama and make millions on Broadway.

I don’t think so that this will be the next Sedan.

What a stupid idea and it’s just press-talk. The Opel Insignia (on which the 9-5 is based on) is already sold in the US as a Buick, so why would they have two cars on exactly the same platform and with the same size and engines? See it’s stupid.
