I’ve been quite tentative about writing this up as it’s been from sources I can’t confirm as genuine. BUT, it has been from two independant sources and both have said similar things to two different levels of detail.
The crux of all this smoke n mirrors stuff is that the Aero-X may not be the only new product we see from Saab at Geneva. Whilst there may not be cars there in the flesh, I’ve received indications that there may at least be imagery of the 9-4x SUV and the smaller car that’s going to replace the 9-2x and make a genuine go of taking on Audi’s A3 and BMW’s 1-series.
One source in particular indicated that he has been shown pictures of the SUV and remarked that the front of the vehicle he saw was pretty much the same as the 9-4x cameraphone shot I published here last year.
Now, that car was beleived to be a prototype of the 9-6x at the time as the 9-6x was still slated for production back then and the rear end of it looked quite Suuby-like. This new Djup Strupe (my name for inside informers) indicated that the vehicle he saw in pictures, named to him as the 9-4x, looked the same at the front but was a five door, rather than the 3-door in the photo.
I can’t confirm the authenticity of the sources, but the fact that similar info has come in from two separate sources lends a certain amount of its own integrity. We’ll have to wait and see, I guess.
Here’s the front I’m talking about. It’ll be familiar to those of you that have been hanging around here for some time.
