Saturn Sky (2006-2009)

Based on GMs Kappa automobile platform which it shares with the Pontiac Solstice, the Saturn Sky was launched in 2006. The rear-wheel-drive sports car design is obviously designed to compete with the highly successful Mazda Miata. As a contender, The Saturn Sky is certainly an exciting and attractive vehicle but on other levels it may not be so class leading. The drive may not be quite as engaging as the Miata, but there is more power on offer and less feminine styling. Interior and luggage space are minimal but then practicality may not be the first thing on buyer’s minds.

Perhaps its only weakness is an ill-conceived manually operated roof which requires multiple steps to open or close, unlike Mazda’s clever mechanism that allows it to be flipped back with one hand.

The Delaware plant where the Sky was built was closed in 2009 while GM looks for a buyer for the Saturn brand. The Saturn Sky (along with the Kappa platform) seems to have had a short life with only around 34,000 cars sold.

Saturn Sky Redline 2.0 Turbo

The Saturn Sky Redline 2.0 Turbo is the performance alternative to the standard Sky Roadster. The important word here is 'Turbo' because the Redline gets a hefty boost to give its small capacity engine the horsepower to take on some serious sports cars. While the standard car may be designed totakeon the Mazda Miata, the Redline has its sights set oncars like the BMW Z4 and even the Porsche Boxster. A limited-slip differential is fitted to make sure it can corner as well as it accelerates.
