Overall it looks pretty good but I'll have to agree with mgescuro here on the front end of this rendering. Not liking that at all!

My God, man, does nothing please you?
What? You're happy with that design??
It looks like a larger, modern, Saab 99! Look at the rear lines. And look at the front.
You find the raccoon eyes acceptable?? Not to mention the overhang?

This is a VERY sloppy design, if it is anything like the actual 9-5!!!

What you THINK a Saab is, is not what a Saab is.

I like the new design after seeing the 9-3 in person. I'd get that 9-5 assuming it comes with a 6-speed manual.

the lights on the 9-3 everyone hates have some kind of projector LED 'slit' that runs the width of the headlamp at night with a bright white/bluish light. It looked really sharp, saw one yesterday....very nice.

Not thrilled by look, like a 350awd saab 9-5 though!

I'm not putting any stock in this drawing. This is only what Left Lane News thinks. Show me the real thing and then we'll talk. I am hoping for a great car though. I love the new 9-3, especially after testing driving one.

The 9-3 has evolved into a cobbled together design that is neither Swedish or American. Anyone who thinks the current 9-3 is good design needs to go see an optometrist.
The current 9-3 is disgusting. And its continued sales decline is evidence, despite the refresh.

Taking a 35 year old car design, and then modernizing is a death sentence. We've seen it over and over and over again.

A 9-5 that takes that 35 year old design, slaps on a "modern" front end, will be a Frankenstein of a car.

The reason 9-3 and 9-5 did so well for Saab when they were released were because a more contemporary design that appealed to a modern yet practical aesthetic.

The reason these same designs are failing now is because they are ****ing old and they are ****ing ugly as sin.

The '08 9-3 is the best looking Saab in decades. So, you have your opinion, others have theirs.
