This struck me as I prepared the Saab design series.
Whilst the Aero-X was a groundbreaker and will be used as a template for future Saab design, it really did have some serious roots in previous Saab concept designs.
Take a look below. The Aero-X is first, and below it is the Saab 9x from 2001. The side profile for these cars is completely different, but from the top, they’re definitely family.
Build ’em both, I say.
And as a matter of Saab trivia, there’s a badge missing from the Saab 9x in the Saab museum in Trollhattan. I think it’s the ‘X’ badge on the rear of the car. I noticed this whilst walking through the museum and told one of the attendants there, and he informed me that it’s been missing for a couple of years.
Whoever stole it, mail it back to the museum please. You should be ashamed.
