New Saab CEO Victor Muller has confirmed that Saab is planning a revival of the Saab 92, likely to be called the 9-2 - not to be confused with the Subaru Impreza-based 9-2X.
Earlier this year, Muller confirmed that the new model - which would likely compete with the MINI Cooper and the Audi A1 - would be designed to bring new, potentially younger customers to Saab.
Whether the 9-2 would be the same car as the 9-1 small car already mentioned in recent Saab announcements, or a separate model line, is unclear.
Speaking with Bloomberg this week, Muller said that the company is already on its way getting development started.
"Discussions are already ongoing, that will be on my plate for the next 100 days, Mr Muller said.
Muller added that the design of the car will be heavily influenced by the original 92 of the 50s, offering a similar 'tear drop' style.
Before new models can be added to the Saab line-up however, the Swedish carmaker will need to climb to a more stable, profitable position.
The 9-2 will be some time away, with Spyker-owned Saab already planning to renew and bulk up its existing range with the upcoming 9-5 and 9-4X, and a new 9-3 in multiple body styles.
With its goal of converting the brand to a niche player, Spyker says Saab will be repositioned against BMW and Audi as it seeks to grow sales to 125,000 units per year.
