A french media source has claimed that they have spy photos of the 2010 Next Generation Saab 9-5 which may be produced in Trollhättan, Sweden.

There are a number of things that make this sighting credible, particularly the registration tag that goes back to Saab Automobile AB in Sweden in addition to the shape, front grille shape and most notable the rear tail light cluster that looks like the Saab 9-4x as well.

    Definitely looks like a SAAB. Looks like a hatchback as well.

    James,

    Thanks for your note. How great would it be if this were truly a hatchback?

    Hi Ryan,

    Provided Saab continues to produce cars, which I sincerely hope, this car will definitely get to production. I sure hope the others will as well, especially the 9-X family.

    I checked out the other pictures on that French website and I believe this is not a Hatchback. It could easily be turned into one, but I feel that might be more for the next 9-3. Just wondering what the next 9-5 wagon will look like.

    I currently drive a 2001 9-5 wagon, and am waiting till 2010 to get a 2007 9-5 Dame Edna Wagon.

    Actually, this 9-5 next gen could have the 9-X front and 9-4X rear, that would be rather interesting don’t you think?

    Cheers, Nico

    You think? What about the rear wiper on the deck glass?

    Hi Ryan,

    I actually don’t think its a wiper. It’s part of the camouflage, and its like an edge. almost like a 2006 Seabring, other cars don’t come to mind at the moment.

    Besides if that was a wiper, it would barely clear the back window, not even reaching the center.

    Anyway that’s my two cents. I just like spy shots. Something to get excited about again with Saab.

    The Opel Insignia which shares the platform with the 9-5 has a hatchback version both of which are shown in the picture at this location: http://img2.netcarshow.com/Opel-Insignia_Hatchback_2009_800x600_wallpaper_06.jpg

    Ian,

    Yes, this is the photo of the 5-door hatchback! Here’s hoping the 9-5 has this multi-hinged hatch/trunk system too!

    In the picture of the two cars (2009-insignia_hatchback/800×600/wallpaper_06.htm) the one at the rear with the wiper and hatch line higher than on the one with the trunk is the hatchback.
