National Electric Vehicle Sweden, the Chinese owned company that both owns Saab and is working on making an electric version of the 9-3, is now considering bringing a gas-powered model to market in 2013. The fact that NEVS is thinking of bringing a "traditional" (i.e. tried and true) powertrain to market before the electric version gives us hope that this beautiful car might actually see the light of day.

Fingers are still crossed.
