Saab 9-X Air conceptFri, 19 Sep 2008 00:00:00 -0700
We saw the 9-X BioHybrid concept at Geneva, and at Paris we can expect to see this car as a cabriolet version called the Saab 9-X Air Concept.
The core innovation in this design is the roof which in Saab's words is: "a powered, flat-folding roof developed from a Targa top principle". Relating to this, the rear C-pillar buttresses are also unique. Another interesting design innovation we're looking forward to seeing is the way that the rear luggage area is accessed via a sliding drawer as opposed to the conventional trunk lid.
With an original 900 cabriolet pictured in the press release it's clear that Saab want to make best use of its cabriolet heritage with the forthcoming production version of this car: the 9-1.
