The first pictures of the Saab 9-6X concept have hit the web, nearly six years after the model was axed.

Recently unveiled at the company's museum in Trollhättan, the vehicle was based on the Subaru Tribeca and was slated to be a follow up to the Impreza-based 9-2X. However, fate intervened as the 9-6X was shelved when GM sold their minority stake in Fuji Heavy Industries in 2005.

While the concept isn't beautiful, Saab also built a three-door prototype which could have been a unique offering if it would have been launched.
