Awwww geeez..... I know someone was gonna start one of these up....

1) 9-2X Hatch on Extended Kappa. Base Turbo 4 @ 170 w/ AWD. HOT Turbo 4 @ 210-230 w/ AWD.
2) 9-3 Sedan on Epsilon. Base Turbo 4 @ 210. Turbo 4 @ 230. HOT Turbo 4 @ 250-270 w/ optional AWD.
3) 9-3 Convertible. Base Turbo 4 @ 230. HOT Turbo 4 @ 250-270.
4) 9-3 Hatch. Base Turbo 4 @ 210. Turbo 4 @ 230. HOT Turbo 4 @ 250-270.
5) 9-5 Sedan on current platform. Base Turbo 4 @ 220. Turbo 6 @ 240. HOT Turbo 4 @ 300 w/ AWD.
6) 9-5 Hatch on current platoform. Base Turbo 4 @ 220. Turbo 6 @ 240. HOT Turbo 4 @ 300-320 w/ AWD.
7) 9-7X on Sigma. Base Turbo 6 @ 240 w/ AWD. HOT Turbo 6 @ 300 w/ AWD.

I would bring the luxury factor up a notnch on the 9-5's to be more in line with the 5-series, but keep the sportier aspect of thye 9-5's intact. Furthermore, I'd get rid of the aluminum dash on the 9-5 Aero's and put a black-dyed walnut dash with aluminum accents.


Now, I know in reality, Saab has been testing a HOT Turbo 8 w/ AWD for the 9-5 w/ 350+ HP (it's an M5 killer), and I know there are Hirsch Performance Mods (Europe Only) that will increase the current HOT 4 in the Aero 9-5 to 310HP w/ suspension and interior mods, etc.
And I know 9-3 Viggen is testing on Epsilon, with an unknown engine.
Also Kappa is under development in Sweden.

I still believe 9-2X and 9-7X as they stand now are "placeholders" for GM as they get their act together in other areas and generate revenue.

I will be OK if 9-7X is treated like the Lincoln Aviator. Rebadge for now and relaunch when a better platform is available.

Of course, I would prefer it if GM had done this to start, but I do understand the finite resources available to GM.
