Default Need top 10 reasons 2001 SC2 Turbo should be made!

Hi all...

I posted this message in another thread, but wanted everyone to respond, so I figured I would repost.. I sent a email to Saturn requesting the posters and this is what I got in response... Maybe this will be in a commercial.. That or she really loved my email...

I know you guys are creative, So if they are more than ten for the list, I will post them all..

THanks so much.. And Enjoy..

Laura 99sl2

Laura:

No one can tell you are a true Saturn enthusiast, can they? I guess I will think about scrounging
up some posters for you, however, first I would like your list of top ten reasons why the Saturn
Turbo Coupe should come to fruition. You can make it funny or serious!

Also, please make sure in your reply e-mail you include a mailing address to your home. I might
just be able to find those posters if you are creative in your top ten list.

I look forward to your reply!

Hi Saturn,

I was interested in knowing whether you have any posters of the 2001
SC2 Turbo concept car that maybe you could mail me.

I really love that car, and I am looking forward to owning one shortly
(regular 2001SC2). Call me a Saturn Fanatic, but I would love a
poster. Is this possible??

Also, I would just love to put a word in for this concept car to come
to fruition.. I currently own a 99SL2, but would like to own a coupe
and since I am going through my midlife crisis (I am only 32 I have
just recently discovered aftermarket accessories for my lovely Saturn.
I feel the need, the need for Speed, and I believe this car with the
turbo would help me through this turbulent time in my life. Any
thoughts about when this may become a reality??

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon..

9. Because if they build it for themselves, but don't sell it to us, they're teasing! And since Saturn's a nice car company, and it's *not* nice to tease... They should sell it.

I agree Mike and Andy. The SC needs to stand for( Sport Coupe w/the third door) Make a Sports coupe then. The third door increased the sells half , build a more powerful engine, we would all like to see a turbo if not, a much more horsepower enigine. other then a 1.9 liter, 124 horsepower enigine. It will be nice to have a SPORT COUPE and mean it. I like the DOHC enigines don't get me wrong but upgrade it then. The interior has went through changes and Exterior too. Now the Engine NEEDS some changing. Please we beg you.

Default Need top 10 reasons

Here goes:

1) Saturn needs to boost its image in terms of being able to produce a true performance car.

2) The car would bring more showroom traffic and should spur sales among other Saturn models.

3) The car is beautiful!

4) It will open Saturn's target audience to accomodate a younger group.

5) It will increase the awareness of Saturn within the aftermarket performance parts market.

6) It will bring Saturn recognition in comparision to all those "souped-up", slammed Civics and Integras we see on
the road.

7) A road-burning Saturn = a good Saturn

8) Since Mitsubishi came out with the new Eclipse, no other company offers a turbocharged coupe in this target
and price range.

9) You can get hot dates in the car.

10) It gives us fellow Saturn drivers and drag-racers a solid reason to write "Doesn't it suck to be beat by a
Saturn?" on our rear windshields.

Okay okay...number 9 and 10 are a little out in the blue, but 10 is 10, and 10 is what the guy asked for. And he
said it didn't have so be serious. So voila!

10.)Because Boost is fun

9.) That guy in the Si will feel really dumb, having just been spanked by a Saturn

8.) That guy in the Mustang will feel REALLY,REALLY dumb, having just been spanked by a Saturn

7.)Because Boost is fun

6.)The added infusion of power would make the sportylines really earn their keep.

5.)People need to become really familiar with Saturn Taillamps.

4.)It would give the term: "Ahhh,, the power of polymer" a whole new meaning.

3.)It would be the only domestic car equipped with a turbo.

2.)That wide open front end REALLY needs an intercooler to fill the gap.

1.)Saturn= cool.... boost= cool..... Saturn+boost= Awesome!

(next thing you know,, we'll be begging for them to build a turbo/awd model!

Just think of the possibilities!! hehe

I like: It would be the only domestic car with a turbo. Why does Saturn feel that it could not compete in the small performance car market? The japanese car manufactureres do it well, damn its like the US car companies are all chicken shi#.

HAve fun all.

Default Need top 10 reasons

The top reasons that the Saturn coupe will NEVER be made on the current platform.

10. Tranny can't handle it.

9. The cost is too high to develop a mass produced tranny for the SC-2 that can.

8. The majority of coupe buyers are women not men.

7. Women (most) don't care about Turbo.

6. Projected sales would be low.

5. Would be a money losing project.

4. See 5

3. See 5

2. See 5

1. G.M. is a company driven for sharholder value. They have no interest in developing a turbo coupe. If you want one you will have to do it yourself. If you put one on it will void your warrenty. When you destroy your tranmisson you will only have yourself to blame.

DONT GET ME WRONG!!

I would love to have a turbo available. I just am realistic and realize that on the current platform Saturn will NEVER make it available as an option. So whats the point in asking them. Your time would be better spent trying to get a high performance L series built.

OPEC, I do agree with you about money being a MAJOR issue.. However, I do have to offer a bit of argument about one of your top 10. The tranny not being strong enough... Seems strong enough to me.. These things aren't made of plastic you know.. Just like any other tranny, they are designed with a certain amount of abuse in mind.

Adding 40 or 50 horsepower isn't going to break the tranny,, powershifting at 6500 every chance you get, will. I'm surprised at just how durable that sucker really is,, I figure with the abuse at the track, and on the street, that we've put our SC2 through since our turbo install, I'm really surprised that I haven't scattered various internals yet..

Just my $0.02

Default Top 10 reasons SC2 Turbo shld b made!

You made our point. There are lotsa women buying SC2's. Having a turbo would bring lotsa men into the fold. Even if Saturn didn't quite break even, it would more than make up for the loss with the increased EXCITEMENT in Saturn. It would showcase Saturn dominance. It would be the premiere millenium American sports car. The days of the big V8's and big weight are over. Time to trim down. Go "Polymer Power." I would buy two alone as soon as they came out with more later. Other Saturn owners in my family and friends might also with a little convincing on my part.

Default Need top 10 reasons for 2001 SC2 Turbo

I sent them a similar email last year and actually got shoved aside. Perhaps they're starting to hear from MANY of us who think the same way.
The SC2 skidpad is as good as the BMW 328 (.83 G in some cases). Nobody knows this or cares. People judge power over handling almost every time.
Why not give it some acceleration to match? Even if they only sell a few, it would sell many more of the base models.

The BMW 528 does 0-60 in something like 8 to 8.5 seconds. Everybody thinks they're fast; Why? Because the BMW 540 screams. That's what people remember and judge the brand on. That (1) item they have.

Another example; How many people buy a Camry because it's "essentially a lexus". They associate their daily driver with a lexus which shares alot of its technology.

Point;
If Saturn builds a very quick special edition car, even if they don't sell many of that particular car, it will generate alot of buzz and sell many more of the base models.

Best of luck and let's hope they do it,
Bill

Default Need top 10 reasons 2001 SC2 Turbo should....

Why do people drive Acura Integras? Because they wish they had a Type R. Some wish so bad that they buy the stickers and paste them on there cars... We have all seen this! Do you honestly think Honda makes a dime off of the production of the 2500 Type R's they sell in a year? Hell NO! The heads alone are all hand finished. Add to that the other non production line items the Type R has on it. There is no way they could make money off them - "Directly".
BUT The company as a whole makes major bucks off of the sales of lower end models and emblems sold at the parts counter... The last part is a joke, but probably true.
Plus, all the exposure Honda gets with it's winning racing teams, the few that are handed out to the Magazines, and tuner companies.

It's called Brand recognition based on desire. No person needs to drive a Type R around every day, but you can bet that everyone, including me, would rather have the Type R over any other model they have....

Saturn needs to establish desire based products.

Default Picking apart an old post about the Turbo coupe!

Hindsight being 20/20, its fun to dissassemble this old post from OPEC(don't take this personally dude) now that the OLOA coupe has put most of these to bed...

<blockquote><hr><font size="1">Original Post:</font><!--1-->
The top reasons that the Saturn coupe will NEVER be made on the current platform.
10. Tranny can't handle it.
.<hr></blockquote>

Apparently this isn't true. The OLOA car, Pauls SCturbo, and the Saturn drag car aren't destroying them, nor would a production turbo.

<blockquote><hr>
9. The cost is too high to develop a mass produced tranny for the SC-2 that can.
<hr></blockquote>

See above. No need. I can't understand where this one ever started. IF there is ONE piece of the equipment on my 92 SC that I am immensly satisfied with, its the tranny. Nothing has broke, nor have I ever heard of anyone blowing them up, it shifts like a dream(even ten years later)and there's no interesing whining noises coming out of it. The gearing is well matched to the car, etc...

<blockquote><hr>[
8. The majority of coupe buyers are women not men.
<hr></blockquote>[

Ive heard this BS argument before, and I don't buy it. FOUR SOLID reasons...

1st, what is the actual percentage male vs female...IIRC it was like 53/47...not exactly an overwhelming majority, now is it?

2nd, ITs a chicken and the Egg type of argument...why is there a bias toward women? Is it the lack of REAL PERFORMANCE from the engine, or is because Saturn is pushing the car as a womens car? For those of you in the industry, Ford tried this BS attitude with the Probe, and where is the Probe today? Discontinued. Lack of sales, remember. Why? My wife used to own one, not a bad car, but Ford PUSHED it as a womens car...most Male buyers went to the mustang...Saturn has NO MUSTANG. Why would you WANT TO turn away male buyers? So what if women don't want the turbo? There's still the virtually identical SC1 and SC2 for them.

Thirdly, My wife traded in her "womens" coupe on a Jeep Grand Cherokee, with the 4.7L Overhead Cam V-8, with the Quadra drive. In case anyone here is unfamilar with these things, they are SERIOUSLY fast. NO-ONE beats you across the intersection. The AWD means dragstrip quality launches everytime. There's a six available that gets better mileage, and is cheaper, but she picked it out...she's not an agressive person by any means...but she LOVES the power of that vehicle. I have to admit, I'm quite in love with both her, and her Jeep.

Fourth, in case anyone here is blind, the ACURA integra appeals to both WOMEN AND MEN, why? Gee, we here at Saturn know that ONLY WOMEN buy four cylinder FWD coupes, right? C'mon, get real. This goes back to the chicken and the egg argument. Acura is successfully courting both groups. One of the biggest problems at GM and Saturn is that TOO MANY MARKETING PEOPLE ARE REALLY JUST BEAN COUNTERS. Time to let the car guys have at it again.

<blockquote><hr>[
7. Women (most) don't care about Turbo.
<hr></blockquote>[

So what? See above. I get the impression that you or Saturn somehow believe the Turbo would hurt sales of the coupe to women. This is ridiculous. Maybe the sales would be equal if Saturn built something that had performance to back up the good looks. Finding out that the new coupe can barely eek out 9 sec to 60 times is like finding out that the extremely cute girl youve just met is a complete airhead.

<blockquote><hr>[
6. Projected sales would be low.
<hr></blockquote>[

Then project them higher. Do a little asking around. There's plenty of enthusiasim for this car. At least within the population who ACTUALLY BUYS CARS. This seems to be a different subset of the population than the one that makes decisions at Saturn. Also, in case anyone is blind to the news, the current youth generatin is the LARGEST one in history...many of them are now moving out into the world, buying there first cars, or are looking to buy a new one to have some fun with(BTW, GEN Y is NOT ONLY WOMEN) Why do you think all the Japanese makes are introducing products that are intended to reduce there average buyer age. THey are certainly smarter than whomever is calling the shots at Saturn. ALSO, these same people who are telling you sales would be low are the same people who told you that if Saturn owners wanted bigger cars they would buy other GM brands...yeah, that worked out really well.

<blockquote><hr>[
5. Would be a money losing project.
<hr></blockquote>

ABSOLUTELY BS. A Turbo for the 1.9 is virtually a Bolt on job. Youre not reinventing the wheel! Mixing in turbo's on the regular production line would be SO easy, and require very little in the way of support from purchasing, engineering, etc. How can a company in california offer turbo kits for the 1.9 at 2600 bucks, and yet Saturn will lose money adding them at the factory? Hasn't Saturn ever heard of lean manufacturing or value added operations? The Stock internals are sound enough to handle a 5-7psi turbo(volvo does this, they call them low pressure turbos) as is. You add some bigger piping to the exhaust, purchase the turbo from an existing GM supplier, and away you go. I could go on for hours about this. Companies lose money when they THINK about things too long.

<blockquote><hr>[
4. See 5
3. See 5
2. See 5
[QUOTE][

See above. Priced at around 21K(yes, very doable...hell the overpriced 01 SC2 pushes over 20 anyway right now...from a 15K base.) And even if this isn't a big money maker, so what, as long as youre breaking even, you are getting something that Saturn needs more than anything...a sexier image. Put a price on that. You don't build a brand over night, and you don't do it by giving the customer only what you want to sell.

[QUOTE][

<hr></blockquote>

Why discourage people, its their car. And they should be able to get what THEY WANT out of it. This is more selling of what you want to sell, not what the public would like to buy. As for the tranny...Not likely. GM is an assinine entity that does things bass-ackwards. The whole company needs a big smack to the collective head. How much market share have they lost so far THIS YEAR ALONE, never mind the last ten. BTW, profits from trucks aren't going to keep doubling like the price of Gasoline.

Realistic people never would have gone to the moon. Realistic people don't make a killing on the stock market. Realistic people never find the courage to go talk to that cute girl or guy they see at a party or a club. Being realistic won't get you that raise you deserve at work. Realistic people live pretty boring lives. I used to work with a bunch of guys who had that BS attitude at work...they are still stuck there, I moved on to a better job with better pay and a better enviroment. You need to expect, and DEMAND more out of life. I want more out of life. And I don't want a Hiperf L series. I want a turbo SC2. I guess after reading that post, all of us should just sell our Saturns and buy Nissans, or Toyotas then, and stop wasting time on this board.

Best,
