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 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.

A Letter from Jill Lajdziak to Saturn Owners Regarding GM’s Decision to Shutdown the Brand

Saturn General Manager Jill Lajdziak

Of all the letters I have written this past year, this one is the most difficult. I want to begin by thanking all of you for your support over this last year. Your loyalty to Saturn motivated my team to work very hard to try to find a way for this brand to continue. The many e-mails, calls and personal notes provided the inspiration to all of us at Saturn. By now I'm sure you have heard that the sale of Saturn to the Penske Automotive Group could not be finalized. As a result, the Saturn brand will now be phased out over time.
