    Considering the saloon got 2 stars when tested by Autocar, I was very pleasantly surprised to see the estate getting 4 stars. Autocar Article

    This is the closest thing we’ve seen to a review so far of the Saab Turbo X. Deliveries aren’t due to start for a little while yet, so I’d be interested to know if this is a pre-production vehicle they’ve taken for a spin. Unfortunately for Saab, this first review is in Autocar - a...

    This may lead me closer to a head-on collision with the Karma Train, but it cheezes me off when these big sites get it wrong and don’t take any notice of people that try and get them to get it right. They do it often enough with car reviews, too. Autocar, December 4, 2007...

    P22-23 in this week's Autocar has a couple of articles on Saab: Photos of a facelifted 9-3 with a clamshell bonnet a la 9-5, to be available from June. The top-of the range version is said top have a more powerful twin-turbo 2.6 V6 with the option of 4WD - using the Haldex system originally...

    Commentary by Jay Nagley on P17 of the above edition of Autocar, saying that when GM bought Saab, they found lots of plans for "improving performance" but no signs of implementation. GM's response - as we all know - was to try to cut costs, amongst other things by putting Saabs on GM platforms...

    The current issue of Autocar has a 2 page short test of a 9-3SS Aero V6. Doesn’t get a particularly good write up, they were reserving final judgement until they get their hands on a UK spec manual version, but they couldn’t quite see the point of it, it would seem. The one they drove on a brief...

    GM has abandoned development of a new family of cars ... The first cars to fall victim of GM's current plight are the Zeta family of upmarket rear-drive models, based on the next Holden Commodore. The Holden survives, but GM is studying a new way to produce a quality rear-drive platform becasue...

    From the Autocar magazine and website Global approach can save Saab, says Lutz Saab should no longer be regarded as a Swedish brand, according to General Motor’s product czar Bob Lutz. He also admits that his two recent pet Saab projects (the Impreza-based 9-2X and 9-7X SUV)...

    Interesting article in this week's Autocar. Main claims: - Radical "fastback" replacement for 9-5 under consideration (but Bob Lutz favours a 3-box style) - Saabs to be built in other maker's factories on 3 continents, sharing platforms and engines (well, we know about the Saabaru and the 9-7X...

    AUTOEXPRESS Saab 9-3 1.9 TiD 16v No car maker can succeed today without a top-quality diesel engine in its line-up. Saab has long lagged behind in the oil-burning race, with the 9-3 using the old and rattly 2.2-litre powerplant from parent company GM. This unit had been carried over from the...

    Re: Autocar 29/9 Michael Mauer "not to be replaced" Nothing we didn't really expect, as I said before I'm currently replacing my 9000 with a 9-5, which I intend keeping for at least 5 years, maybe a little longer, but as there won't be a 'Saab' to replace that with, the 9-5 will be my last Saab...

    I see this weeks Autocar has a dedication to the 96. Its in the inside rear cover, in the "Why I love the...." slot. Apparently the journo thinks he would keep a space in his dream garage for one! Well there's a turn up for the books. I'll scan it in and post it up later today.

    Story in this week's Autocar says that Saab will launch in late 2004 a 9-1 which will have the platform, engine and 4WD system from the Subaru Impreza. The car may be made in Japan ... so those Saab employees laid off in December will be dancing in the streets ... Paul Whittle
