Autobild with next Saab 9-3 photoshop

German Autobild believes that the next Saab 9-3 will be one of the stars of the 2011 IAA Frankfurt in September. And they have attached the following photoshop to illustrate the next 9-3.

I believe this picture may be a bit outdated now that Saab has displayed the PhoeniX concept. The real car should have a front more similar to the PhoeniX and according to yesterday's info from Vi Bilägare also a higher waistline and a higher rear end.

Furthermore, despite now both Autobild and autoevolution saying that the car will be displayed at Frankfurt, there is reason to believe that Frankfurt is a bit too early. The car is supposed to launch in the fall of 2012 and for Saab to unvail the car one year ahead of launch seems unlikely.
