Quite frankly, there is no successor in sight for the last Saab 9-5 generation. Even if there were unexpected signals from Trollhättan in the media in the previous week. A topic that will certainly occupy us in the coming days, but without any serious relevance. Saab is no longer, but designers are still designing what never was.
That's unusual. But fits the picture of the brand. Another question would be whether the design of Joe Zechnas would suit what Trollhättan could have run off the line. His idea is a mix of the last truly produced Saab 9-5 generation, the Aero X study, and the designs of Castriota.
NEVS could have built something like this if the trademark rights had not been so carelessly gambled away. Because the draft could also be imagined as a BEV. The Tesla Hunter, a Swedish counterpart to the Model S, which the Stallbacka dreamed of since 2012, but which has not yet been realized. Maybe it would have been a Victor Muller thing as a replacement for the 9-5 NG, which was planned for 2017. Or an upper class Saab 9-7 drawn by Castriota, which, along with many other models, was a vision for 2020.
No matter, the study is pure fiction. A trip beyond reality, before we deal with things in real life tomorrow. What is the opinion of the readers? Does the design of Joe Zechnas look like Saab, or is it just another post without value? Can he pass next to the 9-5 NG, which is still timelessly beautiful and apparently never ages? Opinions and comments are welcome.
