Grill looks funny.
It's SAAB's flagship sports coupe infused with Alfa and Ferrari genes.Originally Posted by mgescuro
Not too sporty at all. It's more like a Lotus Elise than a supercar.
Oh, well. Can't please everyone.

Not that that it's a bad thing... i just don't htink it fits with Saab's personality.
I thought that is where you were going with what you said.Originally Posted by mgescuro
It is more like an Elise than a Countach. In size and in spirit. I wanted to give it a sleeker windshield, which does give it a too sporty look I suppose.
Well.. I can see the Elise-type idea. (It's sitll looks like a Countach though.)Originally Posted by atomicshark
Well... I guess if Sonnett is really to be revived this auto show season, we'll see how Lutz and company interpret the Saab design philosophy for a roadaster... that's apparently not on Kappa.
What made this contest difficult and unique was the fact that we had to come up with cars from an acquired GM, not the current regime.Originally Posted by mgescuro

Why not? SAAB needs some unique sparkle. A hot 2 seat sport coupe is what the doctor ordered. A halo car to bring in the traffic
Obviously rebadged wagons, SUVs, and decent but not exciting sedans and wagons aren't doing much for SAAB right now.
SAAB also needs to give us the 9-3 hatchback coupe again. I loved that car.
What needs to happen is that Saab needs to quit "playing it safe" and using GM's crappy corporate HVAC and radio systems. It might look nice in a Chevy and quaint in a Buick. but it has no place in a Saab (or Cadillac).Originally Posted by atomicshark
Second... a 2 seat roadster woudl be nice for Saab. But roadsters aren't high volume. So, I'm not sure what it would do for Saab. But it's definitely a nice thing.
And exciting interiors like the one in the 9-3X....
I agree. SAAB's need to have their own distinct look throughout.Originally Posted by mgescuro
A 2 seat coupe and/or roadster would give SAAB buzzworthiness. It would bring interest and traffic to it's dealerships.
It will allow people who would normally just go to BMW, Mercedes or Lexus and Infiniti to actually see SAAB's other offerings as well. Maybe even buy one.

Very nice!! The only thing I have a complaint about is the nose. It looks a little stubby
