And to start, here's some Saab 9-3X information from Edmunds' coverage of the 2002 Detroit Auto Show.


What do you think?

    "The 9-3X is powered by an all-aluminum-alloy, 2.8-liter V6, which features double overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing, and makes 280 horsepower."

    I rarely like redesigns and Saab is no different. But then Massachusetts will probably call it a high theft vehicle when the rest of the country rates it low.

    As an empty-nester whose 18-year old will inherit the '99 Saab 9-3, the 9X will be my/our next car. Ideal for cross country touring, stopping at well-researched bed 'n breakfasts over long distances, I will retire with one of these whether my wife likes it or not.

    The 9-3X will be a slightly higher, heavier, more powerful, slightly bigger variant of the 9x with AWD. I feel at this time I won't need this variant.

    If I sound like a Saab person, I am. Saabs have the second highest resale to former customer rate of any EU-North American cars after Porsche. There are reasons for this. Design integrity has a lot to do with it. The 9-x/9-3x have design integrity in spades. Saab people are excited and well they should be. Saab is doing all GM's chassis and new engine work in the EU.

    You sound like you are well informed... what is the latest you have heard on 9-3X production?

    I have been told best case 18 months from now, perhaps two years, perhaps not at all, etc.

    Apparently 9-X will also be producted but at a later time.

    Just read in an Edmund's test drive of the 9-3 Linear that a "9X AWD will be avialbale for delivery year end 2003." Anybody have any additional information?
