<IMG SRC="http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/dinosaurius/newnews/media/1-2859.jpeg"> <P><B>Saab To Set Sights On TT</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Is this the car that will have Audi TT owners checking up on part-exchange values? Saab is hoping toboost its global sales with a totally new range of models that's set to include a top secret coupé.<P>Known as 'Shooting Brake' within the company, the sporty Swede is being readied in concept form for a debut at September's Frankfurt Motor Show. It's been penned by recently appointed executive director of design Michael Mauer, and our exclusive picture gives a hint of what's to come.<P>Evolving Saab's visual themes into a more aggressive package, the stylish coupé will be the firm's first concept since the EV-1 in 1985 and its first two-seater sports car since the Sonett III was axed in 1974. Power is likely to come from a 2.0-litre turbo lifted from its Vauxhall Astra rival. The coupé will be based on the new 9-3 which is due to go on sale next year, available as a three and five-door hard-top and convertible. An estate and all-wheel-drive version will also feature in the line-up for the first time.<P>For the 9-5, a common-rail diesel version using Isuzu's 3.5-litre V6 is confirmed, and may be available in time for the European launch of the facelifted car at the end of this year. The all-new 2004 version will see the introduction of the GM Epsilon II platform, and the first large-scale use of the Saab Combustion Control engine.<P>And there are plans to build a Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) to challenge BMW's X5 soft-roader. There's also talk of producing a larger model to do battle with the forthcoming X7.<P>By: Matt Davies AutoExpress<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>-Drew
