.... Then they eventually said 'Forget the whole thing'

I think if Chevrolet offered a 'Saturn' as an updated S-series model of Sedans, coupes, wagons and mail carriers' today, that would be a Golden Ticket Idea. They would have to do it right (as close to the original) and not muck it up however.

I do get a bad taste in my mouth saying 'Chevrolet Saturn' or 'Chevy Saturn'.
What is 'Chevrolet' anyway? French?

'GMC Saturn' ... They created a whole division because they knew some people didn't want to say 'I own a Chevrolet pickup.'

'Chevrolet' sounds like a ballroom dancing style. Thanks to my wife for years of watching Dancing with the Stars. (no.1 prime time show among the hearing impaired)
The VUE was a huge step forward for Saturn... at least it was built for the first few years in Spring Hill. I have never looked at the ION as a "New S-Series Car"... once the ION went into production- at that point it was a carbon copy of the Chevy Cobalt...just rebadged as a Saturn.

By 2002- and with many things becoming "outsourced" to other plants aside from Spring Hill- Read L-Series made in Wilmington, Delaware ( a plant that had been in operation since 1947 and built Oldsmobiles), Saturn Relay built in Doraville, Georgia (alongside the Buick Terraza and Pontiac Montana)... GM had essentially killed off Saturn as a completely "Different kind of car". By that point, Saturn was losing too much money on a yearly basis and never could fully recover because from 91-02- the only thing that they offered in a car WAS the S-Series.

I think it would have been MUCH different, had there been an VUE offering that predated the 2002 model year; say 1999/2000. GM missed the boat and it has been well documented here and in the Press that there were MANY folks who worked within GM that wanted the whole Saturn project killed off from day 1.

Default Re: S-Series Spot and Shot

Sorry for no pictures, but recently binge watched the walking dead, seinfeld, and now scrubs

Season 1 of walking dead, episode 3 or 4 probably, they are rumaging through an s series at one point. I think once in like season 3 or 4 you see another s series. Season 6ish of seinfeld you see an s series in a scene when someone is driving. I think george driving his lebaron because it was actual driving not green screen background

Not an s series but a lot of saturns in scrubs season 1. Elliot gets one and there is another one later

That's not a double. LOL!!! A double is two in the same picture!

I've seen lots of doubles, but I better not drive, try to call up the camera app and
try to take a picture while driving in traffic!

^^^^ You are quite right - a single car at two or more separate locations not being its ordinary resting resting place should be called a Double Stalker perhaps?

Is there anyone here who write tax code or casino colloquialisms that can help me out?

You know, I think about this thread every time I see another S-series now, which is frequently, because the little cars are very common where I am. Unfortunately I'm always the one driving and my passengers would think I'm nuts if I asked them to snap a picture of someone else's Saturn. Saw a black 2nd gen wagon with black wheels and blacked out windows at a construction site that I really wanted to photograph, but the timing wasn't right. Maybe I'll get some this week. Now that I'm jobless I'll have a lot of free time...
