Low production numbers, low mileage, and a peppy turbo engine you immediately know a car like this 2009 Saturn Sky Red Line is an instant classic. And value-priced opportunities for something this interesting are always rare.
If it were not for the demise of the Saturn brand, there would be a lot more Sky roadsters out there. These have the long hood, short deck presence that makes for the perfect sports car for two. It's all rendered in a factory applied Techno Gray paint that still has plenty of factory luster thanks to a low 22,504 miles on the odometer. Plus, the design features like the deep channeled hood, scalloped sides, and flying buttresses all have a sporty feeling. The Red Line model amped up this attitude with a more aggressive front fascia, rear spoiler, and dual exhaust. Plus, those 18-inch factory alloys add some great shine to an already standout package.
Saturn had some of the best interiors towards the end of its run. Most of their components were borrowed from the German brand Opel, and as a result, this American-made roadster had a very European feel. You'll enjoy the appearance of the piano black accents during the day, and at night, the yellow glow of the dual pod gauges will be very easy on your eyes. The leather interior is built around the driving experience with supportive Red Line bucket seats, a grippy three-spoke steering wheel with all the right controls, and armrests at the perfect driving height. Plus, the low mileage means very little seat time to crease the leather. This is loaded with all the right features, including power windows, power steering, power locks, dual air bags, keyless entry, cruise control, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input that can be heard with the top down. Best of all, the air conditioner remains ice-cold so you can keep it open to the world longer through the summer.
The best part of the Red Line edition starts under the hood. The turbocharged 2.0-liter powerplant gives this roadster a 45% power boost over its standard sibling. And in a car this original so far, you'll be glad to know it's the original motor. More than just added power, the Red Line puts it to the ground better with a rare five-speed manual transmission. It helps you take full advantage of the superior driving package that includes an enhanced sport suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.
The Saturn Sky was only available for a few years, and this is the high-performance Red Line version that's even rarer. So when you can find such a nicely priced and preserved example that comes complete with the owner's manual, well then, you know how fleeting this opportunity is. Call today!!!
