Has anyone ever heard of this Saturn Curve? I was browsing the internet and i happen to come across it at this site:

It looks interesting, has a funny shape to it though.

Saturn made the SKY instead, I remember when the "curve" was suppossed to be a polymer roadster.

The SKY is pretty damn nice, but I liked the oddball look of the curve also.

I'm gonna call it "Sky" instead of "Curve."
Dunno when exactly the Sky came into production but I bet it was shortly after this concept.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

The grill on the Curve turned me off. It also would have been better a convertible.

My sister loves her SKY... Takes it everywhere...

Heard of it? I've seen it in person and have posters of it. It debuted at the North American International Auto Show about 4 years ago I think. It was a big departure for Saturn at the time and the SKY came from this idea. It was on the Kappa platform and debuted along with the Pontiac Solstice and the Chevy Nomad concept.

Yeah, and they should still offer the Curve, but use the SKY instead, with a Hardtop, and the 'floating roof' look, and call it the Curve. I wish they would've produced it. Not too fond of the grill, but if they changed it to fit the new 'company theme', it would look great.

Default Re: Saturn Curve Concept

Thanks Charlie, that helps a lot. I'll have to admit that I love the interior or the car, but the exterior, mostly the grill, just kind of turns me off. I think that Kappa architecture is an excellent design. It's built for convertibles since they have the absence of any over-head reinforcing.
