Default 2010 sky redline

just when you thought they couldnt suprise you anymore it turns out that there are 8 2010 skys out there. we just bought a blue redline that should be here next week. even if saturn had continued on there wasnt to be a 2010 sky. gm exec drove it 3000 miles. they were built for auto shows.

any opinions on if this is worth something? i can see anywhere from nothing extra to barrett jackson money. it was never to be built. when they closed the soltice sky plant last may or june after they finished building the last of the 2009s just before they closed for some strange reason they built the last 8 cars as 2010 skys. should be vin number 1 thru 8. cant wait to see vin number on the one we bought.

Reports are that only 20 Solstices, 8 Skys, and 2 Opel GTs were produced. Not enough vehicles to be certified as 2010s.
Apparently they had to be re-manufactured as 2009 models and given appropriate VIN numbers.



Congrats on you new baby!


You will LOVE it.

I was under the impression, from a brochure I had seen at my Saturn dealer (not for the public) when I was close to buying my 08 RL May of last year, as well as from an article on saturnfans.com that 2010's were planned for.

Apparently automatics were to get remote start but not much else was to be new, from what I recall reading.

I really doing some intense studying of what was happening with the SKY as I wasn't certain whether I was going to opt for an '08 RL because of its lower price vs. an '09, or even wait for the 2010s. Lastly, the availability of a new '08 RL with everything I wanted on it and at the price I was comfortable with won out over an '09 model and the possibility that an '010 might not even be built. It was a good move on my part.

Sources at the Wilmington plant indicate that the last Saturn, a white non-redline, was built in mid-May of 2009. The last Pontiac, the new coupe, came off the line June 12th; and the facility was officially shuttered by the GM and the feds in mid-July of 2009.

Ran your number through a vin-checker and came up with the kinetic blue metallic exterior with rear spoiler, black top, polished aluminum wheels, black leather interior, monsoon radio/cd player with usb port, 2.0L turbo, 5-speed automatic. Shows a build date of April 23, 2009. Hmmmm?


You're gonna enjoy your SKY because it is -

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: 2010 sky redline

Some delusional sales management listing it for $39,998 - never, never gonna get anywhere near that. Will be lucky to get low $30's for a used Sky with over 3000 miles, even if it is being sold as a "collectible" 2010 model...

From the ad copy:

"This collectible is one of only eight 2010 model year Sky’s ever produced. The other 7 are black, so this is the only Sky EVER painted this color. This is the Sky Redline Turbo. It has black leather interior with an automatic transmission, Monsoon sound system with sub woofer and much much more. All options on this car are factory equipment. Original owners manual and warranty book included. Covered under the full GM 100,000 mile warranty. Here is your chance to own a real rarity as well as one of the best looking cars on the road. This car will look absolutely fantastic in your garage or driveway or on the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction."

Nice car, but not a good investment, even if it is 1 of 1...

Go ahead, take it to Barrett-Jackson...there's a sucker born every minute there.

I followed your breadcrumb trail:
http://www.mplssaturn.com/usedcars.html

Select "All Stores". Under "Search" "Inventory": All Cars, "Make": Saturn, "Model": SKY Red Line, "Body": Convertible, that should bring it up. Click on the mini pic.

Super nice but a bit "pricey", though.

i dont price em but as i said before i cant decide what it is worth. in some ways its like any other sky but its also number 4 of the last 8 built as 2010s (and it wasnt even supposed to be built) and the only one ever painted that color. who knows 39k might be too much or it may be too cheap.
