    To start.. Move the B-Pillar back and shave where the door line is at.

    I think you were trying to recreate this, and I think you did well.

    blur the rear door lines and I think you'll have a really nice chop!

    GM nees to bring back the hatch. My dad owns a 1999 93. We love that car. Turbo 4. Great Mileage, Good Power. ANd the luggage space is waaay better than any Saab (SportCombi Aside) avaliable today. And it looks damn good! Great work!

    Re: Black Turbo

    loved the idea so I have a few suggestions



    besides the obvious smoothing and deletion of the rear door and window bar, I moved the front door line back and moved the rear tire/wheel well inward.

    This really cleans up the proportions.

    Glad you posted this, too bad SAAB won't do it
