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.

Over the past 25 year, Bon Jovi has gone from performing in small clubs in New Jersey to selling out stadiums around the world. Through it all, they have not lost sight of who they are, where they're from, and how they can make a difference. Much in the same way as Saturn has been rethinking how they do things, Bon Jovi has been rethinking what it means to truly be a rock star. It is because of his and Saturn's shared vision of a better future that Saturn is supporting Bon Jovi's Lost Highway tour.
