I saw an excellent Saab 9-5 exhibit last October in Sydney. The 9-5 was present - and free to climb in and out of - as well as a special head-on accident display which showed the passenger sections of the car intact - this is after a head on with a combined speed of over 100km/h. The 900 was represented by one loney (dirty) black 900 Anniversery edition (a standard 900 2.0 litre coupe with ridiculous rear spoiler). The 9-3 sounds interested... although it's said (and I've seen a picture) that the suspension tunes make the car ride higher than originally desiged... giving it a rather lame looking stance. The new grille and spoiler really help eek out the traditional Saab shape... from far away it looks similar in style to the 9-5 (albeit without the clamshell bonnet).
