We might drive up for this event. Saturn is getting exciting finally. This is what they needed six years ago and Saturn would still be hot.

I hope it uses the new 2.4L Ecotec and
a supercharged one for the red line
version. Would be nice if stability control
is an option.

Interesting, I hope it will pass the concept phase though!

The '00 SCx and turbo sc2 concept is still fresh in my memory
(I dont count the redline QC as the natural progeniture of these...)

I can't wait to see what it is going to look like. A Saturn with RWD, Polymer, and the 2.4 would be a perfect addition to the Saturn Line.... If anyone gets pics or anything from the show or beforehand, feel free to post them...

Yay!!! I'm finally glad it was officially announced.

I'm sure it'll come in two or three tiers. The first two prolly with the 170HP 2.4, and the last prolly with a 200+HP Supercharged or Turboed ECO.

I can't wait to see all three of these, and the final design of the Solstice.

One of these three cars will most likely be my next one.

Word "on the street" is that the Kappa is going to Wilmington.

Annette Clayton (president of Saturn) will be there Friday, and might make an announcement.

I've had the privaledge of seeing the concept car. The styling is very much unlike ANY Saturn car - the only place Saturn DNA is obvious is in the rear end.
It looked like a very interesting concept, and on paper all the specs sounded good. I'll cross my fingers in hope it passes through to production.

I agree.

I could go for a HARD TOP convertible. No soft tops in Colorado. That's just a recipe for disaster.

I can't wait to see this car.

Lets hope that it's a coupe, fast, and sexy
