Ion Red Line Flatlined

Tags:

Sources tell SaturnFans.com that the last supercharged Ion Red Line quad coupe was built on Friday, September 1st, at 9:38 a.m. Production of non-Red Line Ions will continue into next year.

The move marks the beginning to what will be a slow shutdown of the Ion line at Saturn's Spring Hill manufacturing complex. Ion production was scheduled to end in December, but was recently extended until March, due to higher gas prices and increased popularity. The Ion will be replaced with an all-new model for 2008. The new model, believed to be called the Saturn Astra, will be imported from Europe in the second half of next year.
