No. Sabrina is a remake of Sabrina (1954), which was based on a play, Sabrina Fair, a Woman of the World by American playwright Samuel A. Taylor [1912-2000]. Taylor, along with director Billy Wilder and screenwriter Ernest Lehman, adapted the play for the 1954 movie. Their screenplay was adapted for this movie by Barbara Benedek and David Rayfiel,

The basic story line of the 1995 Sabrina is the same as the 1954 film. A few changes have been made to details that don't necessarily affect the story. For example, Sabrina (Julia Ormond) goes to Paris to intern with Vogue magazine, not to study cooking. She returns to Paris on a jet, followed by Linus Larrabee (Harrison Ford) on a Concorde instead of their meeting on a boat. In the remake, Sabrina's father (John Wood) has a girlfriend. David Larrabee (Greg Kinnear) sits on wine glasses, as in the original, but he recovers in his bed as opposed to being harnessed in an amusing plastic butt sling. David's fiance Elizabeth (Lauren Holly) is a successful pediatrician, not just the daughter of a rich tycoon. Probably the biggest difference is that Julia Ormond plays Sabrina as a more serious, mature character as opposed to the waiflike naivet of the 1954 Sabrina as played by Audrey Hepburn.

How does the movie end?

The ending of the remake is very similar to the original movie. When Sabrina learns that Linus was going to send her to Paris, not take her, she decides to make the trip alone. Linus transfers his airplane ticket into David's name so that David can go off with Sabrina and calls for an emergency meeting of the Tyson-Larrabee merger. Just as Linus announces that the merger is off because David has gone to Paris with Sabrina, David walks in the door with Elizabeth on his arm. He has decided to go ahead with the merger, having realized that Linus is in love with Sabrina. David informs Linus that there is a helicopter waiting to take him to the airport, where a Concorde is about to take off in 39 minutes. In the final scene, Linus beats Sabrina to Paris and is waiting for her in her apartment. Linus convinces her that he is truly in love with her, and they embrace.
