Saturn Ion Redline
With the Dodge SRT-4 and Subaru WRX out currently, the probable release of the Civic Type-R (or an upgraded SI) and the 237 hp Golf GTI, the sport compact market will start heating up by the end of 2003. Saturn must make the '04 vehicle available by the end of 2003 if they want to be competitive. If they wait to make an '05 vehicle in the winter of 2004, the vehicle must be extremely light at 200 hp, extremely reliable and extremely inexpensive. Otherwise, there will be too much competition in this market (most likely upgrades will come to the Ford Focus SVT and Nissan Sentra Spec V). However, the addition of a supercharger instead of a turbo is a good move for Saturn.
