Please note, this whole story deals with CGI’s only. They are not real photos, but computer generated images based on what CGI artists have learned about the car.
I declined to publish what I’d seen of them as they hadn’t been published online yet. But now the cat’s out of the bag….
A UK site with a decidedly Italian bent, Infomotori, has published three images, two of which I saw in the AM&S file. The third image (3/4 rear shot) is actually a bit older and I think I first saw it as an image in Autocar. It’s been shown here before, in any case.
I’ll let you click through for all three, but here’s the one that I think might be the most controversial:
The front 3/4 and rear 3/4 cgi’s of this car look great, but I’m left wondering about this side profile. Something about the back just doesn’t quite do it for me. It grows on me a little every time I see it, but still….
Ah, well. They’re just cgi’s and external ones at that. I’m sure Saab’s finest will put the touches on that it needs.
Enough about the cgi’s….
Many Saab dealers will be converging on Sweden next month for a conference and whilst they’re there they will see in-the-metal mockups of the next 9-5. Reactions will be interesting to say the least.
