Can anyone out there point to anything definitive as to when we might expect to see the new Saab 9-2, the one to be developed off the same platform as the Astra. The Auto Express article I quoted yesterday mentioned 2008. Everything else I’d read up until 5 minutes ago (that’s just one link, though there’s more around) mentioned 2010 and now I’ve just stumbled over the Channel 4 "Future Cars" section that also mentions 2008.
2008 makes a heck of a lot more sense. It means less time without a 9-2 size model after the 9-2x runs it’s course. Also, the 4-5 years between now and a 2010 model seems like a heck of a long lead time.
But, 2008 was the traditional thinking for a new 9-2 whilst Subaru were still in the picture. Could it be that AutoEx and Channel 4 haven’t updated their files after the GM/Fuji split?
I guess we’ll know more come March next year, at the Geneva show. But geez, the waiting’s a killer.
Someone at GM (and come on, I know you’re reading this) pleeeeeease drop us the word in comments. Or via email.
Anyone else: definitive links welcome in comments….
