Oh damn and blast, all's gone to hell in a handbasket.
And there I was planning on ordering a 4-dr 9-3.... and my finance runs out before the new cabrio arrives.....

Couldn't get your link to work, Eric, but the Porsche Cayenne looks interesting....

Is this a genuine photo, or a photoshop creation? My eye's too untrained to tell, I'm afraid. Looks good, though. I guess we'll be seeing it in AutoExpress next week http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif
Cayenne, Fawlty? Nah. Thought about one briefly, but they're so ridiculously expensive that I'd be petrified to take one off-road in case I pranged it!
So when is the 9-3 Cabrio due out then? Anyone want to buy a 1993 900 Convertible??

If it's a photoshop job.. then it's a bloomin good one...
If it is ... the interior detail of the car.. the facial colour and detail of the girl driving... the stance and proportion of the car and the surrounding countryside of the car would all have to had to be doctored.

I see the Cayenne gets pride of place as one of the world's ugliest cars in Car. As it's sharing with the Enzo, I don't think that's altogether bad.
Interesting article - the thesis is that car designers have deliberately gone ugly a la Avensis, BMW coupe, new BMW 7 series because pretty has nowhere else to go.
Just as Saab decide to go pretty. Typical http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

I think it's this image that's been doctored....

Sure looks like it - I must agree it is a pretty good job then.
