Flashback Friday: 1993 "Multiply" Newspaper Ad

This folksy Saturn newspaper advertisement was one of many used to promote Saturn's newly expanded 1993 model year lineup of S-Series vehicles. The ad featured many of Saturn's classic advertising elements from that time period, including a catchy headline, a prominent photo, and a few clever sentences written to make the reader feel right at home with Saturn. "Left to their own devices, they've been known to multiply," read the main heading of the text. The ad featured side profile pictures (from top to bottom) of the '93 SC1, SW1, and SL1 models. Beneath the four-door sedan, additional verbiage introduced "the 1993 Saturn SL starting at only $9495."
