2008 Saturn Redline Sky Convertible
The Saturn Corporation, also known as Saturn LLC, was an American automobile manufacturer, a registered trademark established on January 7, 1985, as a subsidiary of General Motors. The company marketed itself as a "different kind of car company" and operated somewhat independently from its parent company for a time with its own assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee; unique models; and a separate retailer network and was GM's attempt to compete with Japanese automakers.
Fast forward to 2021 and for consignment here at Classic Auto Mall, a 2008 Saturn Redline Sky. Redline being a more powerful engine which had a turbocharger and produces 260hp. This 2-owner example has a mere 23,054 clocked miles, and is an all original, all factory car.
Olympic White is seen draping all the panels on this car's exterior, and all appears in like new condition. A black colored cloth convertible top is fully operational and adds a nice contrast to the white. This fast little bean shaped aero car sports a few throwbacks to the classics. One obvious would be the rear deck bump ups that begin as headrests then slowly get thinner where they die before the rear spoiler. The other is a vertical vent v-cove in the front quarter just behind the wheel well, which harkens back to the early corvettes. A vented hopped rear spoiler, and low front opened bumper/chin splitter are also seen. 18 x 8 chrome wheels are noted all around and give this car an even more sporty look with the larger wheels.
Lowering the top, we can examine the interior, which is draped in leather two tone, that being red with black stitched bolsters and molded in headrests, and cashmere inserts emblazoned with embroidered SKY logos. Door panels carry over the same motif and appear virtually showroom new. A simple 3-gauge cluster barreled curved eyebrow shaped dash fronts a two toned black and red leather steering wheel, and shows RPM, speed, and temperature analog gauges. The center of the dash presents climate controls, and an AM/FM/6 disc CD radio with a 6 speaker plus Bass sound system. A stubby short throw manual shifter is within the center console. Sport alloy pedals hang above black carpeting which floods the floors. Power driver's seat, ABS, power mirrors, power locks, and power windows, plus air conditioning are installed options on this car.
A 2.0 Liter inline 4-cylinder EFI engine, topped with a turbo charger can put out 260hp. This coupled with the 5-speed Aisin manual transmission and you'll have plenty of power to get you where you need to be.
All showroom like new nary even a hint of road dirt. All independent SLA suspension, and power disc brakes, with a clean rust-free exhaust. Just a beautiful presentation underneath.
A quick starter and drives like it's on rails. A great performer and there is a small piece of glass that rises between the headrest cowls and the interior becomes virtually silent with the top down! All working functions and comfy interior for a small sports car.
This car is comfortable to sit in, easy in and out, starts immediately, and runs great. Getting on the power has a slight lag prior to turbo kick in, but when it does, you'll feel it in your pants! A decent mileage example, well cared for, and now the consignor wants to part ways so he can enjoy something else. You'll be the 3rd owner.
