Thanks to Marcus and TTELA there’s another rear-end pic to look at. It’s another convertible but this time in silver.
The last time we saw a sedan’s rear it was silver as well and whatever that black treatment is, it looked pretty thick on the back of the sedan and a bit too gothic.
As you can see on this convertible, it’s still there but looks thinner and tastier.
Not long now, I guess, until we see the final production version and we’ll know what’s really going on.
Someone mentioned to me last night that maybe the slowdown on the blog is partly to do with the exposure the 9-3 has received here. i.e. is it going to be an anticlimax when we finally see the car?
Not for me.
I’m still very much buzzing at the thought of seeing the new car and the possibility of getting in it and driving it as well. I can confirm now that I’ve requested a spot at the press event starting the day after the festival finishes and that that request has been accepted.
I’ll be driving the MY2008 Saab 9-3 on Monday 11th June and posting my thoughts and video from the experience that night. I think that’ll most likely make this site the first in the world to publish a review on the car.
