There's nothing gay about the Sky, maybe you're friends are gay in denial. Those cars have a wide and tough appearnce to them, not the like the Miata that is a homo car.

They gave the MX-5 a more masculine appearance. Its not as "San Francisco" as it used to be.

agreed, and the mazdaspeed versions are just impressive for the weight..

of course i'd take a redline first , well, a sky really

edit: The Saturn Sky is a “very credible all-American alternative to the made-in-Japan [Mazda] Miata,” says Thane Peterson of Business Week. Peterson praises the “aggressive” exterior design of the car, which he says looks “stronger” than the Pontiac Solstice. Likewise, the interior got top marks from Peterson. “The piano-black surfaces and chrome accents in the Sky’s interior are very striking for an inexpensive American car,” he wrote. However, Peterson points to slightly less sharp handling and shifting as possible downsides, when compared with the Mazda MX-5 Miata. He also noted a number of annoyances, including noticeable air leaks in the car’s roof, and a lack of storage space for small objects. Peterson concludes that it will take another generation for the Sky to “really match the quickness and handling of the Miata.”

personally, i'd take an 06 mazdaspeed over a sky, and i'd do just like he suggested and wait a year or two for saturn to fix the little things. i hear they have several recalls awaiting release..

here's a pic of the mazdaspeed, call it gay, i think it's pretty damn good looking

Nah, it's still as queer as a $3 bill as it always has been.


The Mazda speed miata has 178 horsepower, just 1 more horse than the Sky and it's only N/A. LOL! It only runs a few tenths faster than the Sky in the 1/4.

exactly, which shows that with the new appearance and the boosted perfomance, the miata is certainly not just a 'gay man's car'. it'll do a sick burnout and still launch harder than our s-series would. i'd take one, especially the mazdaspeed version

The Miata is quite a contender against the sky in the peformance department... until the Red Line shows up.

Man, come over here and start talking like that is going to get you banned much quicker than at the Sphere. You just don't know when to keep your mouth shut. This board doesn't tolerate as much bs as the other guys
