Could this be the Next Saturn Sky?

From the Detroit Free Press: French automaker Peugeot - frequently mentioned as a possible supplier of future Saturn cars - is to unveil the sleek RCZ coupe at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month. Very reminiscent of the Audi TT, the four-seat RCZ should go on sale in Europe next year.

From Gizmag.com: First unveiled as a concept two years ago, the production model's unique shape houses some remarkable technology. For instance, an active rear spoiler, a Twin-Scroll turbocharger, direct petrol injection, variable valve lift and variable valve timing, Hill Assist to facilitate maneuvers on steep gradients, an intelligent traction control system (ASR), electronic brake force distribution (EBFD) and emergency brake assist (EBA). There's also a concept RCZ Hybrid4 which uses a 120 kW 2.0-liter HDi FAP diesel engine at the front and a 27 kW electric motor at the rear to deliver 70 mpg.
