Default A 2001 SC2 "BUMBLEBEE EDITION" 99 were made, where are they?

I had not heard of the 2001 special yellow SC2 coupe dubbed the BUMBLEBEE EDITION until very recently. Does any one here on Saturnforum have one of these little coupes? Only 99 units were built. If so, can you post some pics of this rare vehicle?
I am also curious how many fans have the 2001 '10th Anniversary Edition', (Only 1000 built). The original 1994 'Homecoming Edition', (3500 +/- built). The second 1999 'Homecoming Edition", (4000 +/- built).
I have read a few posts where someone found a 98 or 99 "Red Hot or White Hot Coupe". Only 1439 of these were built so they are rare also.
Come on guys, when one of these comes around let the fans know you have a special 'find'. I know I'm looking at all Saturns on the road a little closer hoping to see a Bumblebee.

Here's a video of a "bumblebee" (pretty sure that's just a nickname, not any kind of official saturn name). Note that not all yellow 3rd gen SC2s are "bumblebees" - there are quite a few yellow ones.

Low Saturn used to have one here... but it's been sold off.

It took me the better part of 5 years to find a 1994 HCE. It's in my garage and I work on it from time to time; time permitting....

Research showed that Saturn built a 2001 SC2 coupe and was called the "Bumblebee Edition". There were 99 built with a Certificate of Authenticity. They included embroidered headrests, black leather with yellow leather inserts on seats and doors, black roof, black mirrors. Production number designation inside of fuel filler door. Researched item says not to be confused with the regular issue Yellow Sport Coupe, which you see from time to time.

Sharp car.... not $9000 sharp, but nice looking still. Some cars can't pull off the bright colors, but I think the SC2 looks great in yellow, especially with the black top.

These pictures were taken at the San Jose International Auto Show a month prior to purchasing the car.

It was actually my brothers. And honestly one of my little pet peeves is when they're referred to as "Bumblebees". Its simply a Limited Edition.

Oh my year 213 white hots and 500 or so red hot coupes.

Less white hots of the 1998 year then the other reds or whites. According to wiki.
