Poll: Will Sky Red Line early availability affect your decision ?

With the recent surprise announcement that the Sky Red Line will be available this fall instead of 2007 as was originally believed (by most of us), will this news impact your Sky purchase decision ? I thought a poll would be the best way to collect our thoughts.

As previously posted, here's a link to GM's March 30 announcement:

it makes me rethink

I have been following this forum & posting occasionally...

I've been visiting the 2 local Saturn dealerships & asking & waiting.

So, bottom line I was 99% there. But I had to drive the car first because I was worried if the car had enough power for me to continue to get speeding tickets. lol.

I had called Hahn about their new Solstice Turbo being fitted for the Sky &
was thinking that was the solution.

Now I have real dilemma... I can get 235HP for another $4k from hahn, and get it now, vs. ordering a Redline now and waiting...

So, Yes it had a significant influence on my buying decision...

I'm doing both. I'm buying the regular Sky now and have the deposit down for the Redline when it arrives. I'm banking on the fact that I doubt the regular Sky will depreciate much during the interval.

I was always planning on getting a Redline SKY. There will be a minimum of a $3000 price increase due to the known additional standard options. If GM decides to make some of the SKY options standard the price could (and probably will) increase to $5000 over the SKY. Still I plan on getting one, because a normal SKY with all the options (including the suspension kit) will only be about $2000 less than a loaded Redline.

I have been seeing pictures of the sky for a long time, saw the Vauxhall Lightning pics when they were first released, and right then I said if they brought a similar looking car here I would buy it... Well not that it is a close reality it may just happen. I sat in a Navy Blue SKY at the Central California auto show, and it was my brothers first time seeing one...

I am pretty sure we will be purchasing a Redline together for a little weekend car, want to get over 300 RWHP and have some fun

I already have my SKY, but I am also getting the redline, so the wife & I can each have a SKY. I will get the first one of them at my dealer also. Also the first AURA, our "family" car. BTW I collect Saturns, sorta like Hot Wheels for adults!!!

No, if I feel the need for the extra power I will put in a turbo after the warrenty expires. And if I feel a need for more speed until then, I will fire up my old Vette!

Insurance

I guess that my answer really should have been, I'm happy with my SKY (which I didn't get yet). But I wanted to let you know WHY.

The SKY is a toy car for me. If I had to dish out $1,200.00 or more a year for insurance for the RedLine, I would NOT like to own the car. Drive, yes! But to own it and cost more for insurance because of the engine YEAR AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR. That takes the fun out of it for ME.

If it was just the intial cost of say $3 or 4K, OK, I could do that. But the insurance issue just gets to me.

Too Early

Actually I was holding out for the Red Line anyway - may not be able to get one until November - but the earlier the pricing info and such is available the better I can plan.
