Detroit – Saturn released the first visual rendering of its upcoming sports roadster and announced that the two-seater will be called the Sky. It borrows its name from a Saturn concept that was shown in 2002, but there is no design link between the two vehicles.
The rear-wheel drive Sky is scheduled for public debut in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show in January. It will arrive at Saturn retailers in early 2006.
“The new form vocabulary of Saturn has been influenced by GM’s design talent from around the globe,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Design. “Taut, controlled lines combine with harmonious and fluid surfacing to create a technical and dynamic feel.”
The Sky will be built at GM’s Wilmington, Delaware assembly plant.
