A rendered image was identifed by a Swedish site as being very close to the real look of the next-gen Saab 9-5 SportCombi wagon. The pic inside.

A week ago we told you about a Photoshop contest held by AutoWeek.nl, with submitters sending in their renditions of the next Saab 9-5 SportCombi wagon.  Although one of the drawings was mistakenly identified by a Swedish news outlet as an internal sketch from the automaker, another site is saying the rendering is very close to the real thing.

Still, nobody knows for sure what the fate of Saab is at this point despite recent comments from a GM spokesman Chris Preuss, "At this point, GM has no plans for any further announcements regarding Saab. If anything changes or if any new deal or actions arise, we would certainly communicate them, but right now there's nothing to communicate."

Last week Dutch sports car builder Spyker made a new offer addressing several key issues that scuttled their previous offer for the Swedish brand. However, hopes are fading following the recent comments.

Should Saab remain open, Swedish web site Aftonbladet say this rendering is very close to what the next-generation Saab 9-5 SportCombi will become.  Accurate or not?  Let us know what you think below.
