Default BAIC Beijing 2012

Interestingly enough, all of these cars use a througly reworked Saab 9-3 chassis that BAIC bought the rights to before they went under.


C51X

C60F




C50E



C70G




Sorry about the lack of images, reporting on Beijing 2012 is very, very, very poor.

Not bad, although I'm getting some Mercedes overtones from the C60F.

Definitely more compelling styling--even if derivative--than what Saab was doing.

The C51 is the best, and least derivative of other brands.

I'm interested to see the C51X in production form and how well it reviews. A future SAAB would be smart to work with this company.

Who wound up with the Saab name after all was said and done?
