A quick note:
I have been contacted by the US agent for Hans G Lehmann, the spy photo guy, and have been asked to remove the photos posted of the MY2008 Saab 9-3 that first appeared on Left Lane News. It seems that LLN actually paid for the rights to use these, something that surprised me given the willingness they’ve had to use material without attribution in the past. More power to them for doing the right thing, I say.
I’ll be removing these momentarily, but am also looking into the cost of purchasing the rights to use them and any upcoming shots in the future (this task would be made a bucketload easier if Hidden Image or Hans Lehmann had an easily identified web presence). It’s a goal of mine to make TS the place to visit for all the latest information and imagery. Blogs live or die by the quality of their content, so I’ll see whether the costs are prohibitive and hopefully we can all continue to enjoy the journey.
Leftlane News has the original photos.
