11: Saturn Ion Redline
The Saturn brand was always one of the most unique nameplates in the GM portfolio, and the Ion was a next-generation compact. Although consumers weren’t too fond of the sharp lines and contrasting appearance, the Redline was a special edition of the car that caught on. The sport edition package featured a supercharged engine, spoiler, and appearance add-ons. For what it was, the Saturn Ion Redline was a unique package.
Saturn isn’t the first brand that comes to mind when you think of performance, but the Redline proved a lot of people wrong. The cheap price tag and satisfying road manners have garnered the Redline a cult-like following. You can still find these sports cars for a reasonable price tag and many of them have been kept in excellent shape.
