Known primarily for value-driven sedans, Saturn did make one sports car in its tenure—the

Most people probably don’t know that the now-defunct Saturn even made a sports car, but in the last few years of its existence, there was one sporty sparkle in Saturn’s lineup—maybe they wanted to have a little fun before they called it a day.

Does Saturn make sports cars?

The Saturn Sky, a two-door convertible roadster, was Saturn’s sole departure into the realm of the sporty. 

Saturn Sky (2007-2010)

Saturn Sky
was a sporty two-seater rag top sold between 2007 and 2010. It used the same automobile platform as the
Pontiac Solstice
and its styling was based on the Vauxhall VX Lightning concept car. Sleek and classic in profile, it looked nothing at all like the practical sedans and wagons that made up Saturn’s lineup. 
The rear-wheel-drive Sky came with 18-inch alloy wheels and a base model 2.4-liter, inline 4 engine that yielded 177 horsepower. The
trim offered a turbocharged engine that cranked out 260 horsepower. A dealer-installed turbo upgrade kit was also available, bringing the final count to 290 horsepower
The Sky was available with an automatic or manual transmission. The standard trim could go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds, while the Redline hit the mark in 5.2 seconds. Also included with the premium Redline version were upgraded Bilstein shocks, dual exhausts, and various stainless steel and leather touches. As well as the Redline trim, the special edition Hydro Blue and Ruby Red versions were offered in 2009. 
The entry-level 2009 Sky started at $28,265. Not only was its classic styling fun to look at, but it was also fun to drive—especially with the top down. Reviewers praised its zippy handling, smooth ride, and good gas mileage. Car and Driver rated the Sky a 7/10 and liked it for its “mini-Corvette styling.”
Saturn only sold around 34,000 of these before the company folded. Today, a Sky can run you anywhere between $10,000 to more than $20,000 depending on the trim level and features. As a sporty two-seater, you weren’t going to be able to fit much into the trunk, but that was hardly the point. Saturn had tons of sensible grocery getters. The Sky was for having fun and enjoying your drive.

A brief history of Saturn 

Saturn was founded in 1985 as a subsidiary of General Motors. Its first car, the
Saturn SL2
, hit the market in 1990. Launched as “A different kind of company. A different kind of car”, Saturns were economical, practical vehicles that were fairly popular with the public. Mostly dealing in family sedans, Saturn did make a few crossovers and minivans, and one sports car. 
The company proved to be a bit cannibalistic for GM, though—sales weren’t nearly as high as they had hoped, and most people who purchased a Saturn already owned or were going to buy a GM car anyway. When GM declared bankruptcy in 2008, it announced that it would refocus its efforts on its four core brands—Chevy, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC. There were a few failed attempts to sell the Saturn brand, and it officially ended in 2010.
