And it went to a Saturn Store.. At least from the name.

But its actually a good idea. If you get one now for 4K over sticker, then you have a permanent demo for the future

That is a little more than I thought it would have gone for. Be interested to see if this "zero" rated bidder actually pays for it.

Interesting: Bid history shows at least two dealers made total of 5 bids. Saturn of Scottsdale outbid Saturn of Lynchburg and others not identifing themselves as dealers. Several individual bidders made more than one bid. Appears 12 bidders total participated.

Why would Saturn dealers get into this? If they sold this at cost, wouldn't they have to charge same mark-up to all? I guess I don't get it.

Here's another Sky item on eBay - Sky earrings on ebay, too! In six car colors and at $9.99 what a deal! Too bad they don't have our color.

Maybe they got together and put on a sham auction to justify jacking up the MSRP to prospective buyers..."they're going for $29K on Ebay... we'll sell you one for just $28K"

I wouldn't be surprised - I heard of this happening with regard to the SSR.

Again, it can be asmart move for a dealer to buy this car as a Demo.

SKY will be on a turn and earn basis.

This way they have a Demo they can show people without holding a car in inventory.

Later in the year they can sell at at Auction for nearly what they paid for it.

This SKY was on EBAY too early. Next month would have been a better time

Agreed, that champagne color is wicked. For those of you who havent seen it...
... and the auction link.

Are we to also assume all that luggage can fit in the trunk?
