Yes, it is clear that 2009 will be the last model year for the Sky, since Saturn is shutting down "by the end of 2009 at the latest" according to the GM press release. they will not be building any 2010 model Saturns. It looks like they MAY build 2010 Solstice starting in June/July, and running thru November/December. I am only *guessing* on that, but saying the plant will "close" in early 2010 tells me they will not just sit around waiting to "close" in early 2010, so I think they will be building Solstice during that time.
Now, just think....Our Skys were only built for a total of 3 model years. The last model year only ran for 7 1/2 months, with the last 2 months of production skewing heavily toward Solstice Coupes. I just can't imagine that very many 2009s were built.
If you want a new Sky, you better move NOW. I was at my Saturn dealer yesterday, and they were having a very hard time finding a Sky Redline that a customer had requested. One guy here on this forum in Canada was talking about having a hard time finding a redline in a specific color. Every day, the supply of available Skys will get smaller....and eventually soon, the last new Sky will be gone.
