This page is dedicated to the owners and admirers of the ION Red Line Quad Coupe, released in 2004. The Red Line ION features a supercharged 2.0-liter Ecotec engine producing (supposedly) 205 horsepower and 200 ft lbs of torque. Other performance features include a performance tuned exhaust and suspension, oversized four wheel disc brakes, 17" forged alloy wheels, and close-ratio 5-speed manual transmission with a short throw shifter. Styling upgrades include redesigned fascia and side rocker ground effects, polished chrome exhaust tip, and custom Recaro sport racing seats. All of these put together make the Red Line ION a very different kind of car.

All Saturn media releases about the Red Line ION state that it produces 205 hp at the crank. However, a Red Line ION owner recently had his car dyno'ed and the readings were really something amazing. In fact, they showed the Red Line ION in reality produces around 210 horsepower at the wheels. Pretty impressive. The best 0-60 time achieved so far is 6.3 seconds. The top speed is 144 mph. The four-wheel disc brakes have the power to stop the car from 60 mph in just 119 feet.
