Yep, I saw that, but figured it's a way early GM publicity photo, the DIC probably wasn't working, why bother to mention it?

Here's a bunch I took in November, 2005. This Sky was ALL fiberglass/plastic. The hood & trunk were help open by prop rods. A bit of history as it were.

Continuing down memory lane...for those who do not understand the RED DASH...notice the electric door switch on the insert... original photos of the SKY. Only a few of these pics have them. Not all. That's where the magazine got the picture...it is a duplicate from the gallery.

Early photos

Pre-release models didn't have the onstar sharkfins which made for a much cleaner look.

if u look at your second picture...look where the chicklet would be...that is the what I spoke of earlier in this thread regarding the concept cars at auto shows. I cannot recall what it actually read....but it may have been GM Performance.

Think that emblem was for the interior. During the early years of Saturn, they always had their logo on the sides of their cars as well as front and Saturn written out on the back. For some reason am thinking that the side lettering on the show cars was just SATURN.

The other button on the door may have been a trunk release. Many GM cars have the trunk release low on the panel.

How is that a 2.4 Sky? I thought it was a 2.0 since the early 2008 2.4L models did not have the TC Button below the stereo?

Because of the gauge face color. On the 2.4L cars they're black, but on the 2.0L they're white. Also, IIRC, the 2.4L speedo only goes to 140 as in the pic, but the 2.0L goes to 160. That tach is looking pretty fishy though...

But that's an astute observation Hyler. My guess is that this was intended to convey an "optioned" 2.4L; hence, the black background on the gauges, the sport pedals, radio controls on the steering wheel, leather interior... and traction control?

Boy, I can remember when my car was caged-up like this, Then they drove it out of the show room for me to take it home.
Now I wish I took pictures of that day........
