Old 9-5 technology lives on as Beijing Auto C70G

According to China Car Times, the old Saab 9-5 technology (1998-2010) will live on as Beijing Auto's C70G sedan. It is still unclear when the car will be launched, but now a few black and white renders have been leaked.
From what I can see, they have changed the front with a new bumper, grille, head lights and even a new bonnet. And the front overhang is now bigger than it was on the 9-5.

In the rear the bumper and tail lights are changed, and maybe even the width of the lid?

The first BAIC Saab based car to reach the market is expected to be a 9-3 based sedan to be introduced at the end of 2011.
