    I personally love the Swedish Saab style. There is always something distinct that separates them from the more popular cars in the same market. Proportionally the new Saab 9-5 is robust, and more so than ever in a widely attainable production car there are strong elements drawing influence from air flight.

    Pre-flight checks done! let this baby take off!

    Good article by MSNBC called “The Trollhattan Project”. Not a direct review of the 9-5 but a good synopsis of where we are.

    Thanks! You know, a real Trollhattan Project should be, (if I can use that reference again, using their probable intended meaning) would be to complete the all new 9-3, and get a 9-2 hybrid hatch launched by the end of the year and hit the ground running. 🙂

    Review from the Danish motorist organization – reflects Denmark as one of the highest priced places on earth for cars – and a dull and boring organization.

    “..2.8T Aero is not the great driving experience, if I disregard the fact that it is lightning fast, accurate and not possible to tear of the road.” slightly improved google translation
