Default 2010 sky redline

just when you thought they couldnt suprise you anymore it turns out that there are 8 2010 skys out there. we just bought a blue redline that should be here next week. even if saturn had continued on there wasnt to be a 2010 sky. gm exec drove it 3000 miles. they were built for auto shows.

any opinions on if this is worth something? i can see anywhere from nothing extra to barrett jackson money. it was never to be built. when they closed the soltice sky plant last may or june after they finished building the last of the 2009s just before they closed for some strange reason they built the last 8 cars as 2010 skys. should be vin number 1 thru 8. cant wait to see vin number on the one we bought.

Reports are that only 20 Solstices, 8 Skys, and 2 Opel GTs were produced. Not enough vehicles to be certified as 2010s.
Apparently they had to be re-manufactured as 2009 models and given appropriate VIN numbers.



Congrats on you new baby!


You will LOVE it.

I was under the impression, from a brochure I had seen at my Saturn dealer (not for the public) when I was close to buying my 08 RL May of last year, as well as from an article on saturnfans.com that 2010's were planned for.

Apparently automatics were to get remote start but not much else was to be new, from what I recall reading.

I really doing some intense studying of what was happening with the SKY as I wasn't certain whether I was going to opt for an '08 RL because of its lower price vs. an '09, or even wait for the 2010s. Lastly, the availability of a new '08 RL with everything I wanted on it and at the price I was comfortable with won out over an '09 model and the possibility that an '010 might not even be built. It was a good move on my part.

Sources at the Wilmington plant indicate that the last Saturn, a white non-redline, was built in mid-May of 2009. The last Pontiac, the new coupe, came off the line June 12th; and the facility was officially shuttered by the GM and the feds in mid-July of 2009.

I would just like point those ask why where these built? all of the 2010 SKYs and SOLSTICEs share a common RPO: OAR - PRE-PRODUCTION BATCH BUILD.

These were built when there was still a chance of have a full 2010 production year. (which to think was still less then a year ago)
