1984 GM Project Saturn Concept

GM called its Project Saturn prototype for the late 1980s "The American answer to the Japanese challenge". It represented GM's largest single commitment to fully-integrate design, engineering, and manufacturing and incorporate new technology and assembly techniques. lt was planned to enter production as a FWD Chevrolet subcompact smaller than the Cavalier and about 600 pounds lighter. The fuel-injected 4-cylinder transverse engine was intended to be coupled to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Plans for the car to enter production included selling the vehicle as a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan, and a sport utility vehicle.
