I am just guessing but they may change over after Jan 07. Good question though.

I bet the 2008 Saturn SKY won't be available until Sept 2007.

That would make any SKY made between Jan and Sept 07 a "2007.5 SKY" :jester:

I know VW and AUDI have done the ".5" before. Don't know if GM will. Some minor upgrades to the SKY are coming out after the summer plant shutdown. 2007 Solstices (Solsti?) have not hit the road yet I don't think.

My first car was a 1984.5 GT - makes sense. Just trying to figure out if Saturn did something different. Just not used to new year models in May - June .

Model Years USUALLY begin in August of the previous year (so 2007 MY starts in CY August 2006). The caveat is that ANY car introduced (that is production begins for that model) after January 1st MUST be labeled the next model year. This means any car that begins in January to July is labeled the "next" MY from the rest of the current cars (like the SKY). If the car is an early release (January to March), like the SKY is, there is almost always a .5 Model year. The 2007.5 SKY's will be denoted by the 2-Way power adjustable seats, new on the Solstice for MY 2007 and introduced to SKY's built after June 22nd.

Model year switch over is usually after the plant's summer shut down. Which is 1 week in Willmington, the week of July 4th in Willmington. But they usually get two weeks at most plant's.
