Looks Twice its Price!

...i think we all know the down fall with this car, is going to be the trunk size and if the top is manual or not..., thats what i hear the most discussion about...,
There is no real downfall in my opinion. For 23k to 26K it is priced low enough for the masses, it looks twice its price and is refreshing as it is sexy too! After owning 4 Corvettes the lack of trunk space never bothered me... manual top would be just a minor inconvience as I am sure they will come up with a powered top someday.

good thought, however i know that since the chevy nova incedent, manufacturers are shying away from that.
I don't know about you all, but the Chevy NOVA was a very badass screamer in the 60's. Caught the attention of more than a couple of mopars, thats for sure.:D

How about the Saturn VX Lightning as a tribute to the Vauxhall that inspired it? Sky is also a good name recycled or not.

Saturn lucked out. The design isn't theirs (for the most part). They just saw a good thing and ran with it! The SKY! Bring on the chirping birds! It's an aggressive European design. It's sexy! Marketing has dropped the ball in a number of areas! Including the name. I must say that the Sky comercial I saw was good though

Suggestions for names? How about the;

Wrath, or the Torment (Hmmmm.... we'd be having a good time with that one). The Storm would have been a good one. Perhaps the Saturn RAGE!

The Inferno, the victor, the infuse.... the surge, the outburst.... I could have though of a hundred names that better convey the mood of the car.

I agree the name needs to be something more fierce. When proclaiming i was getting a sky about a year ago people got an image in their head that is nothing like what they saw when I showed them pictures from the auto show.

Perhaps the name (clearly reused from the earlier concept convertible) was a part of Saturn's 3 letter nominclature at the time... ION, VUE, SKY and now that has been thrown to the wind (Relay, Outlook, Aura).

Either way, I feel like the car needs a name that embodies its mecury like flow and cutting edges... maybe the something metal sounding... hmm though Saturn Palladium is week. Eh, when all else fails just give it a bunch of sick letters from the back of the alphabet and some numbers Saturn XT-7.2

I agree ..no real need to recycle names....but the sky concept didnt reach production...had way to cool of a name to begin with...our sky is definately more deserving
If i was naming it i would pull out my Astronomy books and mythology books and look for something very signifigant to Saturn. There is a wealth of information to inspire creativity


The Worship of Saturn
Saturn, so active in the cosmic changes, was regarded by all mankind as the supreme god. Seneca says that Epigenes, who studied astronomy among the Chaldeans, “estimates that the planet Saturn exerts the greatest influence upon all the movements of celestial bodies.

On becoming a nova, it ejected filaments in all directions and the solar system became illuminated as if by a hundred suns. It subsided rather quickly and retreated into far-away regions.

Peoples that remembered early tragedies enacted in the sky by the heavenly bodies asserted that Jupiter drove Saturn away from its place in the sky. Before Jupiter (Zeus) became the chief god, Saturn (Kronos) occupied the celestial throne. In all ancient religions the dominion passes from Saturn to Jupiter.(2) In Greek mythology, Kronos is presented as the father and Zeus as his son who dethrones him. Kronos devours some of his children. After this act Zeus overpowers his father, puts him in chains, and drives him from his royal station in the sky. In Egyptian folklore or religion the participants of the drama are said to be Osiris-Saturn, brother and husband of Isis-Jupiter.



I won't offer my own suggestions but with a name as profound as Saturn ,with a bit of research they could have came up with a creative, signifigant mysterious intrigueing name

But hey Sky works for me too =)
sorry all my posts have been long-winded today
Just got off work and feeling chatty...hehe
