2011 Saab 9-3 Convertible - (Global)

October 1st, 2008
Previous - Next

A number of websites are reporting that Saab’s 9-X Air Concept, that will be on display tomorrow at the Paris Motor Show, is a precursor to a future Saab 9-1 production model.  However we’re not so sure as sources inside Saab have already indicated that the next generation 9-3 will shift to the smaller Delta platform (think Chevrolet Cruze and next years all new Astra).  This leads us to believe that the 9-X Air Concept is more likely a future vision for the next 9-3.

The next generation Astra convertible is due to go on sale in the first half of 2011 and we can expect the next 9-3 Convertible to appear within 12 months of its launch.  As for the 9-1, don’t bet on this model becoming a reality, and if it ever does it would most likely share a platform with the smaller again Corsa to ensure there is enough space between it and the 9-3.
