1996 SL
Default 'Special' Saturns

I've been on saturnfans for less than a year and have no experience with Saturns before I got mine so I'm extremely ignorant about all models other than mine and even my knowledge of my car is very limited.

Just from a curiosity standpoint, I'd like to know more about some of the special edition Saturns. I've seen many posts about the 'Homecoming Edition' and a few about an SC (I may be wrong on the model there) that came in red or white and has a black top.

I'd like to hear about some of these special or limited edition models and what makes them unique. What differentiates them from the 'normal' model? Approx. how many were made per year?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I just realized this may need moved to 'General Saturn Discussion' as it doesn't necessarily apply to only the S series...sorry.

1998 Grey Bronze SL1/SW1 - painted a unique color (for the time, as they offered it in the last couple model years) and featured painted bumpers, and unique-for-the-time wheel covers (same as those of the 1995-96 SC1). Of couse, they had the black and chrome Saturn emblems too. Grey Bronze SW1s are much rarer.

Did they make a black roof SC2 in 2001?
In either 1998 or 1999 they offered the SC2 with the painted black roof and side mirrors, as well as the accents on the alloy wheels. Also featured black and chrome Saturn emblems, and if I recall white-face gauges.

I think you are right. I was trying to remember what year that was and wasn't sure if it was 98, 99, or 2001...

I know that there is someone on here that has a one of these...

I don't know if these would be considered "Special" or "Rare"...

but Saturn did make Right hand Drive Wagons for the Postal Service as well. I have seen a few of them for sale on EbayMotors from time to time.

I think these were also exported? to Japan/Taiwan?

SWP was a RHD SOHC wagon (the only gen-3 SOHC wagon). Japan export Saturns were different; controls were moved around, presumably to comply with Japanese laws.

don't forget the short run of the two-tone 1st gen cars. I think about 3,000 or so total made (sedans and coupes) between 1991 - 1993. I have a silver / gray '91 SL2.

Anyone have any numbers on the 99 Homecomings? It was advertised to be around 3k but never gotten confirmation on that.

99 Homecoming Edition SL2
- unique "Green Gold" paint (mint green with gold metallic flake)
- tan cloth/leather combo interior
- Ultra bright finish teardrop 3(?) alloy wheels
- light tan (looks white) gauge faces with "Homecoming Commemorative Edition" logo on the tach
- Embroidered "Homecoming" logo floor mats
- and of course, the black Saturn badges!

Pictures of mine are in my gallery.

VUE special editions include: 2003 "Outdoor Expressions" (light yellow paint with brush guard and running boards), 2004 Red Line (1507 built - we used to own the first sold until it was totaled in 2006), 2006 Laser Blue Red Line (rarest color on the Red Line, I've been told only about 300 were made), 2005 Red Line with Ebony package

Also, I haven't seen mentioned the 1996 Classic Black SC2, which is noticeable by the thin red line that surrounds the lower portion of the car, and of course the black badges.

...
