Re: S80 Station Wagon...V90? ([email protected])

Hahaha! Whrer did you get that, man? Looks like a V70 to me! I thought those guys at Volvo gave you a sneak preview! http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

No, no sneak preview. Why have you seen something?

This is just photoshop magic. I took a profile view of the S80 75th Anniversary and grafted on the top rear of a cross country, shaved the roof rails and added the spoiler.

No, I have not seen an actual shot of the "plan" http://********************/smile/emwink.gif But, you know me...I like to dig as deeply as I can. I will e-mail you and let you know in the next couple of days, after I finish with the next two busy days!

Re: S80 Station Wagon...V90? (GrecianVolvo)

Oh yeah, end of the month...

http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

You know, I keep looking at this car and thinking they should build it. They'll probably build something more differentiated, but you never know... the V90 might also spell out the next gen S80 as well.

The cool thing about the S80 is that it is longer and more upright than the V70. Plus, I may be biased, but I like the looks of the 80's front clip better than the 60/70. The dimensions of the headlights and grill are better IMHO. Now all the S80 needs is an optional cross hatch grill. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

Yeah, but the car above looks too much like the current V70 which, in turn, did borrow some of the S80 looks. The V90 wagon, at least on paper and prototype form, looks/will look quite different.

Actually, a couple of articles about the V90 were done in European publications about 2-3 months ago. I saw links to the pictures / renditions(which look way beyond a V70 - think about what a large wagon with Jaguar panache would look like - this car has real presence as they want it to compete against big buck sedans) on some of the forums but I don't have easy access to them at the moment.

Hopefully someone else can point you in the right direction.

Good luck..
