anyone heard anything about the supposedly upcoming saab 9-1? apparently it's going to use the subarus impreza's underpinnings and it looks like the 93x but that's all i know.. looks interesting tho.. and hopefully it will be a quality product!
saab seems to change it's marketing strategy on a dime.. hope that doesn't mean they're going to deprive us of the the 9x http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif

There's a "picture" and some discussion on This thread (http://www.saabscene.co.uk/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=9;t=000175)
and this one (http://www.saabscene.co.uk/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=9;t=000172) too.

Car Magazine yesterday (sorry March) reckoned that the Alfa 147 was amore likely base for the 9-1 than the Subaru.

Sorry for the double post! seems there is a similar thread in the News section.. But it IS a relief that the Alfa is chosen, altho the Scooby is a cracking car, to lift the dashboard off it absolutely stinks.
Wonder if there is any chance it'll look like the 9x

Then again, they do change their strategy on a dime..
