    Saab Interior

    Ok this is my first attempt at drawing cars ever. Spent the better part of my Calculus class the past two days working on this. Its all free hand so I know my wheel isn't perfect and all.

    It's not a driver oriented c0ckpit. Center-stack/console is very Infiniti.
    Handbrake should be on the left-side.
    You have a manual shifter but no clutch pedal.
    Lots of empty space on the dash.
    doors are too plain for a Saab.

    Not too bad for freehand though.

    You basically addressed some of the problems I knew, but didn't want to redo on this first drawing but on my next. And the hand brake on the Corvette is on the right, so I thought it didn't matter. Thanks for the critics

    I didn't think much of a handbrake being either the right or the left....until I got my G6, and realized that it was alittle far to reach. It's personal preference, I guess.

    Yeh I thought it was on the right side for the G6 also, personally I don't like that being in the console at all. But when sitting in the passenger seat of Z06 at the auto show I liked holding on to it, so thats why I put it on the right in drawing :p

    Beware, some British Leyland descendants might sue you for the infringement of their trademark Quartic wheel from the Allegro:



    On a more serious note - great job, better than anything I've done, mostly because I've never tried to I also can't draw a circle too well, that's why I didn't become an architect

    As for the interior, it seems pretty void for a premium car, and a Saab especially. I would try to evolve something around the traditional Saab plane-c0ckpit dashes - lotsa buttons, airplane-style gauges etc.

    As concerns the handbrake, I've heard that the fancy one in the 9-3 is not very practical - you can get your hand stuck. So, given Saab's predilection for safe/practical quirky details, why not place some funky thing like a button operating the handbrake somewhere?
