foto of the day. 1965 Ford Mustang by Bertone.

some back story:

In 1965 Scott Bailey invited Bertone to have his say on the design of the popular Ford Mustang. The publisher of the prestigious “Automobile Quarterly” wanted to show that the Turin school of bodywork designers could achieve great things on cars which were very different from their usual projects. Bertone’s interpretation of the American car was put on show for the first time at the 1965 New York International Automobile Show, and was one of the most admired numbers: the Bertone model featured a radiator grille dominated by the emblem of the original car, while the disappearing headlamps were hidden behind the grille. All in all a very personal interpretation which turned out to be another coup in image terms for the Turin designer.

future Saab ideas.

I gotta say, i’m excited to see what SAAB comes up with in the next few years.  I always loved SAAB as a company, but found GM to be a corrupting party in their uniqueness and product line.  Here’s to hoping SPYKER brings some fun back to the brand.

The rumour is that the original SAAB 99 is the inspiration behind a new working concept under the working name “92” or”9-2″

About a year ago, IEDEI had ranted about SAAB and it’s lack of current identity.

It is starting to look more and more that SAAB may find it again!

some renderings/possibilities that have been circulating:
