Saab Switzerland have updated their website to make it all 2008-savvy.
They appear to have a new Carlsson model available as well. What’s going on with that?
And if that picture of a Snow Silver Aero SportCombi alone isn’t enough to make you want to order one then I reckon you need your head read.
The Carlsson model seems to be limited to the Saab 9-5 and incorporates a body kit, 17″ wheels and BioPower. There’s a few other bits and pieces in there as well, but my German isn’t so good.
We all know that the James Bond books had Bond driving a Saab 900 at one stage.
John has pointed out a thing with Bond’s Silver Beast that I’d neglected, which appears to be quite relevant given Saab’s current emphasis on BioPower.
Bond’s 900 was capable of running on either gasoline or gasohol, which is basically what we call E10 today.
Life imitating art?
Speaking of things being imitated…..
Hyundai have built a car company based on two things – reasonably reliable cheap cars, and copying decent designs from other companies. There’s been Merc-based Hyundais in the past, Toyota-based Hyundais and I reckon one of their SUVs looked like the 9-7x at one stage.
Now there’s this sketch. Does that D-pillar look familiar? The Hyundai SportCombi is on it’s way to a showroom near you.
Those Brits and their dry sense of humour!

A short video for classic 900 month. Thanks Ivan!
