With Saab now in the relatively safe hands of Spyker work can continue unabated on the development of new models. We’ve already seen the new 2010 Saab 9-5 and following its launch we will eventually see its SportCombi wagon variant make its debut.

These latest spy shots show that development of the wagon is nearly complete, with a worldwide reveal by the end of the year seeming more and more likely. Apart from the rear hatch and likely extended wheelbase, the 9-5 SportCombi will be nearly identical to the sedan. Both cars will be built at Saab’s home plant in Trollhattan, Sweden.

At launch, there will be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel model with 160 horsepower, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline model with 220 horsepower and a 2.8-liter turbo V-6 gasoline flagship with 300 horsepower on tap.

Shortly after launch, a 1.6-litre gasoline turbo model with 180 horsepower will be introduced, together with a 2.0-liter BioPower E85 model.
