From AutoWeek: "All of our efforts will be to sell down our remaining 2009 inventory," Susan Docherty, GM's vice president of U.S. sales, said today at a press event. "We'll have a little bit of carryover of that into the first quarter of 2010, but the objective is to keep our inventory somewhere between 425,000 to 450,000 units." Docherty said she is confident that GM will clear out the 2009-model-year inventory by January. Meanwhile, the company likely will shutter its Pontiac and Saturn brands by the end of the first quarter, Docherty said. GM has only about 10,000 Pontiac vehicles left and 8,000 Saturns, she said. "We're actually winding down those products quicker than we had anticipated," he said.

Flashback Friday: 1993 Saturn SC1

Saturn introduced this entry-level sports coupe, called the SC1, for the 1993 model year. The SC1 featured Saturn's 85-horsepower single overhead cam (SOHC) version of the brand's 1.9L 4-cylinder powerplant. To further differentiate the SC1 from the more uplevel SC2, Saturn grafted the front-end of an SL sedan onto the front of the SC coupe.
