Saturn Sky Among Most Popular Sports Cars on MSN

2009 Saturn Sky

According to MSN Autos, "the words performance, handling, and fun go hand-in-hand when talking sports cars." In that vein, the Microsoft web portal assembled a list of the ten most popular sports cars based on visits to the site's vehicle research pages between April and June 2008. "Many would argue these speedsters should seat only two passengers and sport rear-wheel drive," wrote the site, "but automotive thrills can arrive in many forms."

The top 10 most popular sports cars on MSN:

  1. Ford Mustang
  2. Chevrolet Corvette
  3. Dodge Challenger
  4. Porsche 911
  5. Nissan 350Z
  6. Mitsubishi Eclipse
  7. BMW M3
  8. Mazda MX-5 Miata
  9. Saturn Sky
  10. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

Here's what MSN had to say about the Sky:

The Sky may be the first Saturn ever to be referred to as sexy, but the new roadster certainly turns heads. Sharing a platform with the Pontiac Solstice, the Sky's suspension is tuned differently to provide a more compliant ride. The base engine is a 2.4-liter 173-horsepower 4-cylinder, while the Sky Red Line's powerplant is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder producing 260-horsepower. Starting price for a 2008 Sky is around $26,000.
