Follow GMbeat's Coverage of the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show

Many years ago this time of year was always an exciting time to be a Saturn fan. While Saturn cars generally tended to be more practical in nature, the company would pull back the curtain a bit and show off its wild side in Las Vegas at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. Saturn's show cars never disappointed, and owners sought out aftermarket suppliers for parts that would make their cars go faster, handle better, and look more aggressive. Reaction to Saturn's SEMA concepts was so great that the company eventually offered factory-tuned "Red Line" models.

Today it's Chevrolet that carries the aftermarket/tuner banner for General Motors, and this year the company went all-out in an attempt to show off the potential of its latest vehicles. Head on over to GMbeat.com where we've been obsessively covering all things related to General Motors and SEMA.

In the mean time, we hope you enjoy photos of Chevrolet's 2014 All-Activity Sonic concept.

Jill Lajdziak: We are Still Saturn

Saturn General Manager Jill Lajdziak

A letter from Saturn General Manager Jill Lajdziak: From our very beginning, Saturn has always sought a better way. We pioneered no haggle-no hassle shopping, built dent-resistant cars, set a new benchmark for customer service and forged a unique relationship with our retailers, workers and customers. From the beginning, Saturn was launched as a "Different kind of Car Company." Well, here we go again. You may have read that General Motors delivered a plan to the U.S. government that outlined the corporation's plan for long term viability. In that plan, GM stated that Saturn would work with its retailers to investigate options for the future of the Saturn brand. We said that all ideas were on the table and we meant it.
