Inside the boot of every new Saab 9-3 SportWagon is a small plane.
Okay, it's only a small chrome-plated model of a jet that doubles as a pull-handle for the boot floor, but it's a pleasing detail symbolising the link between Saab the car-maker and Saab the plane-maker.
The two were once one and the same, but no longer - Saab the plane-maker is independent. Saab the car-maker is a part of General Motors - and this new version of the 9-3 has as much in common with an aircraft as a toaster does with nuclear fission. But GM, struggling for a platform from which to sell this once eccentric marque, is majoring on the aeronautical link.
