Thanks to ctm and Mattias for the heads-up while I was sleeping.
It’s been a little while since anything new about the MY2008 Saab 9-3 has emerged. This pic, and a few others like it including a full frontal, have been spotted at Tekniken’s Varld. Go take a peek.
This is another SportCombi, and it’s interesting that we’ve only seen the SportCombi and the convertible so far. They’ve managed to keep the sedan hidden pretty well.
This shot is poorly lit and it looks like a cameraphone photo (I’ve tried to sharpen it a little) but it still shows off the new front styling. It looks a little more rounded in this one compared to other shots we’ve seen previously.
The tape job looks a bit better than on previous ones but I still believe that’s tape we’re seeing there around the bumpers and doors. It doesn’t line up properly (to my eyes at least).
Hard to tell about those door handles. Previously we’ve seen Caddy BLS door handles on the test mules, but these look a lot like color coded Saab door handles with the oval shaped area where the handle attaches on the door. Again, it’s hard to tell due to the poor quality source image. It could be shadows giving it that oval shape.
Here’s one of the first pics we ever saw. Looking at this again, I’d say they are BLS handles in the shot above, which isn’t a bad thing actually. They look pretty clean and simple, almost Saabish 😉
