According to the Sky giveaway smallprint :pRIZE : (1) Grand Prize: A 2007 Saturn SKYT with Yahoo!® Music Enabled Package. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $27,000 (the "Grand Prize"). Grand Prize will include standard factory equipment.

Does that mean its loaded or "standard". 27k is a bit out of my range if thats the base Sky. Guess I better win.

p.s.- The approximate retail value of my post .02 cents, so dont read anything into it. :)

Base includes almost everything that the Solstice is equipted with. You'll get a nice car for for 27k

I hope that was in Canadian, which would equal 23,349.60 in USD. That sounds closer to the base (standard) price. :confused:

That's only when you do the metric conversion! ;) Actually a Solstice fully equipted is around $35k Canadian if I remember correctly. About what I expected to pay.

I was just on the Canadian Solstice site to confirm what I was saying. The Solstice with everything is just over $35K Canadian. Since the Sky will be delivered with many of the same features standard I expect the Sky to come in close to $29K-$30K before upgrades.

It isn't that bad. I should be priced competative with the Miata and the Solstice.

I put $27,000 CD in the converter and the rate was aprox .83 ....which came out to a little over $23,000. :confused: 37,000 CD would be around 30,000USD using the same formular, so I think I used the correct one. :D :cheers:

I guess I am bored if I am converting $ that I will never use. :D

I'd say. Perhaps Saturn needs to give you something new to occupy your time with. Perhaps a new web site or video. Maybe a pic or a poster for all of us who have waited so long.

I'm just going by the Canadian pricing for the Solstice. That would seem to be the closest source. If you are a US customer I'd check the US site and build a Solstice there.

Remember that until the dealers start taking orders, it's all just speculation. :D

Makes sense ... price should be around the same area as their sister car (Sol). Maybe 26K at the high end ... any more and they might put the Redline over 30K and that IMHO is over the target price (<30K).


Just my .02

Come on guys, this is like thread #3 about this topic. The total price listed is for the car and the Yahoo package with it. It says so in the sentence describing what you win. We have no clue how much of that is the Yahoo enabled package price, or what the entire Yahoo package is.

Brentil:

We need something new to talk about. Nothing from Saturn. Perhaps we should go through the best of the threads for the year and redo them.

Say what colour Sky do you want? ;) Perhaps we should have a vote on it. LOL :lol: Anyone planning on waiting for the Red Line? :D My dealer things they should start delivery in January. LOL...

On a serious note, I presume you are very busy but is it possible to get some more smiles?

I think we will have a greater "melt down" than the Sol Forum. :willy: Just goes to show that GM has a couple of great cars on their hands. :cheers:

The moderation team does not have permission to alter the smiles for the forum. Only Troy can do that an he's exceptionally busy right now.

You seemed to be attempting to "calm down" the MSRP speculations and IMHO the Sky has sparked a similar or greater :willy: factor than the Sol. Using the Sols debut issues, continued lag in deliveries, and the weekly "I am otta here" posts, as a measuring stick ... then it could get ugly around here. However, the Sol Forum did calm down quite a bit, once the F1Ks mad it to their owners. :cheers:

Ohhh ok, yeah.

Being Saturn and a car with a much smaller production # I don't think we'll see anywhere near as great the level of frustration I saw as a moderator at the S-Forums. Also since a lot of the issues have been worked out from the launch of the Solstice that should also mitigate things as well.

Hopefully a lot of the delays that frustrated the Sol owners to be won't exist with the Sky. The frustration started when people first thought production was going to start by mid May, and production didn't actually begin in earnest until almost August. Those couple months of waiting and wondering, compiled by reports and rumors of body fit problems, leaks, and other issues really got on people's nerves.

Hopefully the Sky will avoid most of those issues, simply because they have already been worked out on the Sky. The workforce will be trained and have plenty of experience assemblying Solstices, and the Sky should go together just about the same. The initial fit problems should be non-existent, the leak issues that have been rumored should be taken care of, etc. They should be able to avoid any major delays with the Sky, and be able to ramp up fairly quickly. Hopefully that will help avoid the worst of the craziness! :willy:

Also what should help is that they shouldn't be in trouble of missing a summer launch with the Sky, even if there is a delay. With the Sol, the delay meant most owners wouldn't see their car until the weather was cold enough they couldn't enjoy it. Since the Sky is supposed to be out early in the year, even a delay should mean they will have plenty of cars on the road by summer. At least we can hope!

On the down side, I have a feeling the Sky owners may be a little more demanding too. The Sky will cost a little more and is being positioned as a more upscale kappa, which will raise expectations for meeting deliver estimates, build quality, etc. Any perceived problems in those areas may be seen as a bigger deal on this car than on the Sol.

I have to wonder about the layout of the Wilmington plant. What I mean is, will there be two (soon to be three) body attachment lines that feed off one chassis line? Do we know enough now to assume that the chassis will be the same for all three cars? I do wonder if the Sky will have softer spring rates and a different shock package? The details of brand differentiation on platforms coming from the same plant would be interesting to know about. I sure wish they would take the muzzle off of linedog. :lol:

I have to also wonder about what the Sky team that is taking the Sky to the plant floor has been doing to take advantage of the teething issues that have surfaced with the Solstice? Let's hope that no Sky sees the back lot @ Baltimore.

Since I live near DC, I say let's take a field trip to the plant and hold a SKY rally!!
