Wilmington Builds First Batch of Turbo Skys

SaturnFans.com has learned that GM's Wilmington Assembly plant has built its first batch of turbocharged Kappa roadsters for testing and evaluation purposes. The seven pre-production vehicles – four Saturn Sky Red Lines and three Pontiac Solstice GXPs – were reportedly manufactured over the past two weeks. Production of saleable units is not expected for at least another month or two. Sources say that GM hopes to begin shipping the new models to retailers later this summer. The company has announced that the hot-rod roadsters will be available for delivery this fall.

In a blog post, General Manager Jill Lajdziak said her team was "thrilled" when 1000 folks joined within the first three weeks. Today, the site boasts almost 5000 members.
