Saturn S-Series One of the 10 Most Significant GM Cars of All Time

1991 Saturn SL2

Alex Taylor III, senior editor of Fortune magazine, recently compiled a list of the ten most significant cars in General Motors history. In chronological order, Saturn was cited as number 7. "Another GM effort to compete with the imports, Saturn represented a fresh start free of old encumbrances," he wrote. But "later it became a corporate orphan and languished for a decade until revived with products designed by Germany's Opel." His full list included the following: 1912 Cadillac, 1927 LaSalle, 1953 Corvette, '55 Chevy, 1959 Corvair, 1964 GTO, 1991 Saturn, 1996 EV1, 2008 Tahoe 2-Mode Hybrid, and the 2010 Volt.

2010 Saturn Aura Painted White Diamond Tricoat

I've been a fan of pearl colored Saturns since the debut of the 1994 SL2 Homecoming Edition. Up until last year when White Diamond Tricoat was offered as regular option on the 2008 Saturn Outlook, the multi-layer color was limited to special edition or commemorative models. Later this year, Saturn will expand the availability of pearl white to its four-door Aura midsize car, according to a 2010 Ordering Guide obtained by SaturnFans.com.
