The Saturn Sky was never given a full and fair shot at success.
Only available for a few short years, this was a halo car for the
Saturn, but the brand didn't survive. So today that makes a
low-mileage and exceptionally presented example like this a true
opportunity. After all, rarity and affordability seldom come
together on an attractive drop-top.
Saturn was the company that dared to be different. They may have
had General Motors in their blood, but their products were more
like Toyota rivals. So it's no surprise they would get a
sharply-style drop-top in the same era as the MR2 Spyder. And the
Sky really got the full sports car design right. The swept-back
headlights, flared fenders, and Corvette-like heat extractors
running through the door line. And the rear deck looks like a
racecar with dual buttresses that meet the headrests. All of this
is straight from the factory, just like the ultra-glossy silver
metallic paint. In fact, while this one has averaged only about
2,500 miles annually, the overall condition almost looks like this
left the Saturn showroom last week. Even the polished 18-inch
wheels are bright and clean.
The premium interior with optional red leather inserts has the kind
of cool style that will always have you keeping the top down. Low
mileage also means it all remains clean and quite attractive. The
supportive bucket seats highlight a cockpit that's built around the
driver. The three-spoke sports steering wheel has all the modern
controls you could want. It's on a tilt column to give you a clear
view of the handsome set of analog gauges with large speedo and
tach. This is loaded with all the right features, including power
windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, cruise
control, a powerful Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary input,
and cold-blowing air conditioning.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 2.4-liter fuel-injected
motor. Low mileage and proper maintenance mean this looks like new.
This peppy and powerful DOHC motor was GM's version of a sports car
for the modern era. In this lightweight setup, the Sky delivers the
kind of performance you'd expect in a Japanese or European import -
but wrapped in American styling. This sporty spirit is felt every
time you hit the open road. The five-speed manual transmission
provides complete control, and the fully independent suspension
loves every corner. Add in great anytime features such as power
steering and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is an
unbeatable driving package.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and reproduction
window sticker. This low-mileage Saturn is a blast to drive today
and a great classic to have for tomorrow. Offering all of this at
such an affordable price means it will be leaving us soon. Call
