After talking to the reps at the Ft Worth Auto Show, it looks like it won't be here until mid-April. Sorry!

Default I want Purple!

I also am expecting a mid-April delivery. I base that on when I picked up my '01 limited edition which was April 14th of 2000.

This makes me wonder if the Redlines will in fact be 2005 model year cars?

Although they might not get to dealers until April they have to start building them before then. Like right about now. So, anyone in Spring Hill, are they rolling off, or onto, the assembly line yet?

Save a purple one for me!

Send TNSATURN an email. He works at the plant. He always seems to get the info early. He is one of the inside guys here.

2004 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default

My uncle works for Saturn in Springhill, TN. The Redlines are due to be 2004 and have an April release eta. The problem lies in the supercharger mounting and how the supercharger was ripping away from the block when the clutch was dropped and the car was raced thru the gears. Saturn is addressing the "dis-mount" problem. A few Redlines have been built and are being put through their paces and several more (dozen) already came off the assembly line. Saturn is taking there time, especially where auto mags are concerned. The auto mags seem to try to find any and every little thing to knock Saturn down (but yet Saturn sales show different). Saturn is trying to win over a larger market. Everyone on this site, including me, are here because we love our Saturns. By-the-way, my uncle did get a chance to take the ION Redline around the block... his words, "You'd better go to the bathroom before you get in and drive and dumping first gear puts your bladder against your spine!!!" As for anyone who may doubt what the new Redline with the Ecotec can do, please visit the Saturn website and read what the Bonneville Redline did late last year (212.6+ mph). Also, if anyone is wondering about how to get their ION close to the Redline, you can always pop on a turbocharger (See: Saturnmototrsports.com, dyno @ 249 hp).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
