Saab 9-5 scooped by CAR reader

Published: 20 August 2009 Updated: 26 January 2015

Danish CAR reader Søren Carstens snapped the new Saab 9-5 on a Danish motorway.

Interestingly, the new 9-5 – which has already leaked online ahead of its official unveiling next week – was in convoy with an Audi A6 3.2 Quattro, the car that Saab is targeting with the new model.

Being an investigative sort, Carstens has run some checks on the Swedish number plates on both cars; the Saab and Audi are both owned by the Swedish car maker. Strangely, the Saab is registered as a Holden! Presumably just a rouse to put nosey photographers off the scent.

Carstens said: ‘The car looked somewhat larger than the Audi.’

Good spot, we say.
