Curve Approved for Production

The Car Connection reports this morning that General Motors has already approved the Saturn Curve sports coupe concept for production. The confirmation came from GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz less than a week after the Curve was unveiled. The sports coupe will be built alongside the 2006 Pontiac Solstice at GM's Wilmington Assembly Plant in Delaware. Pricing is expected to be around $20,000.

Wilmington currently builds Saturn L-Series sedans and wagons. The L-Series will be discontinued in 2005. A new 5-door midsize car based on GM's Epsilon architecture is rumored to be in development.
