The Saab 9-X concept car was developed by Saab in 2001 and first shown on the Frankfurt Auto Show. The 9-X was designed to combine the qualities of a coupe, roadster, station wagon and pickup truck in the same car. The design was created by a team of ten designers at the Saab Advanced Styling Centre headed by Anthony Lo.
The car used a four wheel drive system along with an all-aluminum, 300 hp 3.0 L turbocharged V6, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and 19 in tires. It featured fiber optic headlights and a completely keyless ignition system.
