The loss of Saturn from the General Motors corporate family was a bit tragic, but it also created an instant classic like this 2008 Saturn Sky roadster. With low production numbers, a cool convertible body, and all the modern conveniences you could want, this is the affordable way to enjoy a car today and keep a classic for tomorrow.
Aiming to be a lighter and more nimble companion to the Corvette, the Saturn Sky has all the great performance design cues we all love – the long hood, scalloped fenders, sleek profile, and short rear deck. Plus, Saturn was really doing a great job with their styling of the front end that was sporty and friendly at the same time; the chrome windshield surround that paid tribute to their best muscle cars; and everyone loves the dual buttresses that meet the headrests. All of this is straight from the factory, just like well preserved Chili Pepper Red paint and the shiny 18-inch alloy wheels.
Saturn had some of the best interiors towards the end of its run. Most of their components were borrowed from the German brand Opel, and as a result, this American-made roadster had a very European feel. You'll enjoy the appearance of the piano black accents during the day, and at night the yellow glow of the dual pod gauges will be very easy on your eyes. The black leather interior is built around the driving experience with supportive bucket seats, a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, and armrests at the perfect driving height. There are signs of use, but this is far from a daily driver appliance. This is loaded with all the right features, including power windows, power locks, dual air bags, keyless entry, cruise control, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input that can be heard with the top down. Best of all, the air conditioner remains ice-cold so you can keep it open to the world longer through the summer.
Under the hood is the original 2.4-liter fuel-injected motor. Unmodified and maintained properly all its life means its reliability is uncompromised. This peppy and powerful DOHC motor was chosen to be the answer to those who thought the Corvette needed to ditch old pushrod technology. 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 the road. The five-speed automatic with overdrive always seems to be in the right gear, and the fully independent suspension loves every corner. Add in great anytime features such as power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this is an unbeatable driving package.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a fun and easy way to get a great car to hang onto for years to come. There are many times we say "I wish I would have bought one back when it was so affordable." That opportunity is now. Call today!!!
