Saab Automobile may be well and truly out for the count, but the company’s spirit continues on in the form of its platforms, adapted to a host of Chinese offerings.

Beijing Automotive Group showcased a series of concept models in Beijing – all styled in partnership with Italian design house Fioravanti – that utilise the 9-5 and 9-3 platforms as their starting base.

The list is led by the C70G and C60F sedans, which ride on a reworked 9-5 platform called the M-trix, and the C50E sedan and a rather cool-looking C51X crossover utilise 9-3-based architecture. BAIC owns Chinese production rights to the two platforms, having acquired them from GM three years ago when the US automaker was still owner of the Swedish brand.

The state-owned company also had the C90L as its integral display, with the B-pillarless executive limousine featuring suicide doors and a V12 mill, among others.
