    Ugly as. Is it real? Remember that Saab are compelled to ditch the Griffin soon anyway.
    Plus is that it has a propeller for that aero link.

    Anybody with the right equipment... Look, SAAB made an entire emblem industry by putting "instant peel paint" on the factory ones. It's the first part many SAAB owners will replace!

    I seriously doubt that's a new, real Saab emblem. I googled and that's Spyker's logo. Someone just got creative

    alittle off topic but there was one experimental jet plane that had a jet engine and a prop motor the republic XF-84H "thunderstreak". However it did not sit well with pilots and it was called the "thunderscreech" by ground crews because of the planes tendency to cause nausea and headaches) anyway assuming this is a real logo I kinda like it but I'd like to see some cnfirmation from corporate that it is a real log before making any final judgements

    There saying WAS born from jets and only in the NA market. Its now a global motto of "move your mind".

    I'm going to go ahead and call these fake.

    I think it looks a bit silly... I'd say that it is just somebody with the ability to produce their own badges getting a little artsy.

    This is obviously somebody's "creativity". There is some demand for replacement round griffin badges on Saabs, as they quite easily peel off under pressure wash or simply due to age. This is "enhusiast" stuff. Case closed.

    Quickening touched on this, 'Born from Jets' was GM 's tag-line for Saab, as we all know this is no longer GM's Saab.

    Definitely just someones idea of a combo logo. Wouldn't surprise me if the Spyker logo doesn't appear on it at all.
