The Saab 9-3 that will never see the light of day


Saab, as we knew it, is basically dead. It was "saved" by National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), a company owned by the Chinese company, National Modern Energy Holdings, with the promise of bringing new vehicles in a near future, but for now the only thing they did was to continue producing the old Saab 9-3.

Jason Castriota, who was the big boss of Saab, was responsible for creating the successor for the 9-3, but this was a car that never got to see the daylight. Until today. Below you can now see Jason's vision, a car that was going to be built around the new and promising Phoenix platform, and had the objective of saving Saab from bankruptcy.

Overall it looks a cool mixture between the Saab Phoenix concept and a few older models (see the rear).
