Why waste the floor space in the museum on that boring piece of crap?

SAAB goes down looking for strike 3.......again.

More pics (including a front shot) here:The Subaru Tribeca Based Saab 9-6 Crossover That Never Was

Interior is quite hideous, but I think they did a pretty good job with the front, no?

Whilst it had nothing to do with the fire sale, GM ended up selling its 20% stake in Subaru later in 2005 and the Saab 9-6 project was cancelled. Prior to this cancellation, Saab had built two prototype vehicles – this five door model now on exhibition at the museum, as well as a three-door version.
I'd be interested in seeing what the 3dr hatch looked like!

Because like most Japanese cars, the dash is very symmetrical so most pieces of it can easily be used in a RHD model
