Default Saturn SKY

I think the Saturn SKY Concept is great!

The problem for me is that it is already too late. I'm on my second Honda S2000, and while I'm a die-hard Saturn fan, I'm absolutely in love with my new S (2000 that is).

If and when Saturn comes out with this "SKY" car, it would be great if they offered a high performance version!!! (ya know.. one that does 0-60 in 4.9 seconds).

After buying the S2000, I found the 4 cylinders Saturn makes quite slow (DUH!!!) So, I upgraded my second vehicle to a Saturn L300, and quite glad I did!! The V6 power is great, it handles wonderful. I do wish it came in a 5 or 6 speed though!!

I think the Sky's pretty cool, definitely a step in the right direction. A little bit too fat looking, kinda like the TT. I'd prefer something more slim like the Miata or S2000. And the name, while sorta girlie, is clever.

The problem with the Sky is that it doesn't exist. It's a computer graphic, from what I've seen. Is there an actual, physical concept at the auto shows now?

They are also making heavy modifications to the CAD drawing. Although there is supposed to be some sort of "real" car this january at some sort of auto show.

The S2000 is an interesting car. Although I take it the RPM's take a bit geting used to? The only real complaint I have with the car is that the HID's are truely annoying and blinding. They are far worse then any factory or even rice aftermarket I have ever seen before.

Default I love the HID's

The RPM's on the S2000 (9,000 redline) is just completely amazing....

Power Power Power!! I recently won best time on Street Tires in a recent autocross!! That was pretty fun.

The Headlights from my vantage point (the driver's seat) rock! I absolutely love High Intensity... I wish Saturn would offer them. Of course, then they'd turn them into DRL's and annoy everyone even more.

Well, I really dont have any issues with HIDs. I like them, and probably will throw them on the car in the next couple of months. Bright is better :-)

There must be something different in the way the S2000's lights are aligned. Those poor drivers infront of you!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
