Default Too little, too late - but what if SAAB coulda' woulda'?

This would have been a bitchin' move for SAAB if the bean counters would've let it happen... The crowds would have come for something this rad me thinks (especially with a decently tuned EcoBoost 4 or the twin turbo V6).

Absolutely GORGEOUS design right there. I get sad seeing all the some-what new Saab's Carmax buys that go straight to our wholesale lot....

I secretly hope that, even with Chinese owning/leading the brand, that SAAB will have a rebirth and stuff like this will surface...

SAAB was owned by GM so no go on the EcoBoost engine. SAAB was a great company that emphasized quality engineering over cost, which ultimately was its downfall.
