I have to laugh when people come into the dealership and try to trade in a Daewoo...

The black book has the value as $0.

Yep... throw away greater quantities of your money on an overpriced ugly car like the Z-4... just so you can long for the day you can get rid of it and get some resale $ out of it..LOL

I can see now how you picked your UserID

Speaking of which... what ever happened to the Dodge Neon/Plymouth Neon plan -- was that considered a failure? I feel like they sold well under both marques.

But yeah, the Sky is too distinguishable from other cars to sell the same thing under two brands in the same country.

It is a bit disappointing that there seem to be more and more clones popping up around the world. I think it does take a little of the uniqueness away from the Sky. I'm just glad that none are supposed to be sold here.

You know, I'm going to go for the silver lining on this one...

I kind of don't mind that there will be more Skys shipped off for sale in other countries because if that is the case then that means more of the cars coming out of the production line in Wilmington wont end up on US streets... further contributing to their rarity and exclusiveness to own a Saturn Sky (and who knows maybe it will HELP the resale value contrary the Z4 owners take on Daewoo’s rebadged Sky).

I don't think there is any plans to open another production line and the plant is already working at capacity now and sharing with the Sol, so if we get to have a car that is less common in America than it would be otherwise, I'm all for it. (Of course my heartfelt apologies to those of you who don't have one yet -- but you will!)

Axel,

where to reply first...first of all I picked my name because I spent 22 years as a submariner protecting all people even the idiots, secondly looks is a matter of opinion, quality however is not and if for even a quick second you think the sky is even in the same ballpark.....lol. Also as I stated I bought the car for my wife because I think the sky is a cute little car...not for me however I am a guy and will stick with my corvette, and my 530...my opinion differs from yours....doesn't make you or me right or wrong...just different.

If you don't have a Sky and don't plan on getting one then why hang out here? Surely a man who can afford 2 BMWs and a Vette has better things to do with his time than bug the Sky fans.

On topic, I wouldn't technicaly call this 'badge engineering.' I see badge engineering as being when a company sells the same car with some slight differences (the badge being the main difference) into the same market. The Neon was a good example, along with the Cobalt and new G4 as well.

What I see the Sky, Opel GT, Daewoo G2X as being really just the same car just sold under different names because they don't sell Saturns in Europe or Korea. You all should be honored GM thinks the Sky design was worthy enough to be the varsion sold over seas.

Well this is one step closer to the SKY being a worldwide car. Which I think is great. I wouldn't worry about production levels. As the exchange rates from the US to Korea are ridiculous. If they are going to sell more than 1000 of them in Korea it would be cheaper to build them there. Which leads me to my next point, Lutz was murmuring about increasing production of Kappa's. I can see the Opel GT and G2X being produced almost exclusively in a Korean plant, as well as a Holden version (it would still be LHD like the Corvette and many Cadillacs are even in RHD markets). So don't worry about it taking away from your cars.

I am thinking at this point to maybe hold out for 2008 to see if they make any improvements to the car like fully controllable six-way power seats.

I really don't believe what is sold overseas will affect the value of a car here. After all, in the states the Sol is being produced at a 3:1 ratio to the Sky, right? Perhaps Europe and Korea will now be seeing the Sky as well under different badges the fact remains that the Sky will be rarer here than the Sol.

Wow you mean you are not one that will pull the Saturn badges off and put on Daewoo badges on in place like some are saying they are going to do with the OPEL badges....

I think it is funny it is just an emblem, it is the same car!!!
