The next Saab 9-3 and 9-5 models are both going to be on variations of the Gm Epsilon II platform.
It’s interesting, therefore, that the first car to come on this platform has been named today. Everyone knew it was going to be the Vectra replacement, but the actual name wasn’t released until today, I believe.
It’s the Opel Insignia and it’ll be shown first at the London Motor Show in July 2008. I’m secretly hoping that we might get a peek at the new Saab 9-5 before then, however.
GM have just put out this video, taking a laugh at a spy photographer trying to get a shot of it. All in good humour, though somehow I don’t think they’ll be smiling if and when some real images get out.
And experience shows that they will.
