The "prototype" Saturn they show isn't an S-series car at all.

Check it out for yourselves.

All I can say is good thing Saturn didn't follow through with this design or we'd be talking about the demise of Saturn 3 years after its launch.
With the exception of the front clip and headlights, I thought it much resembled the first gen sedan right down to the wheel design.

It's probably because I was a toddler when that report was recorded, but I never realized the introduction of Saturn was that big of a deal. People were putting even up billboards and begging Saturn to pick their location.
