Flashback Friday: 1980s Clay Saturn Concepts

Some interesting artifacts from the past are being resurrected in preparation for GM's 100th anniversary celebration next month. This image from the General Motors archives reportedly shows three different Saturn clay models on display at the GM Tech Center in Warren, Michigan sometime in 1983.

It looks ok, I guess. It looks too much like a Ford Probe.

Looks like the minivan thing in the background was given to Pontiac, Chevy and Oldsmobile instead. The sedan looks like a Tempo and the coupe has that "futuristic" look to it. The sedan and coupe turned out for the better for sure.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

The sedan reminds me of a Renault Alliance, the coupe of a late 90s Buick Riv, and the minivan of one of the many GM "Dust-buster" minivans.

That coupe design did come out in production. It's called the EV1. Well, it didn't exactly look like the concept Saturn, but the general shape and lines were very similar.
