ASC UNVEILS NEW CONVERTIBLE TECHNOLOGY ON THE 1993 SATURN COUPE + ROADSTER CONVERTIBLE SHOW VEHICLE

 DETROIT, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ASC Incorporated will unveil an innovative new convertible technology on the Saturn coupe. This showing marks the convertible's world debut.
 The vehicle features a new open-air concept that offers a cost- effective approach to today's coupe designs. The Coupe + Roadster concept allows room for two or four. With the top up, the vehicle is a coupe that seats four. However, when the top is down, it becomes a two- seat roadster.
 "The Saturn coupe represented an engineering challenge because of the unique rear suspension layout. We believe we have found a creative approach with the Coupe + Roadster concept," said Mark Trostle, program development vice president.
 This cost-effective manual top folds over the rear seating area. The top portion is constructed of strong, lightweight carbon fiber in keeping with the composite construction theme of the base vehicle. These panels give the look of a two-seater sports convertible complete with hard tonneau.
 When the top is up the Coupe + Roadster sports a glass backlite, and headliner with dome light.
 The Coupe + Roadster is finished in Mediterranean Coral Pearl and sports a factory cloth seating package.
 "The Coupe + Roadster concept is a unique approach to the convertible market," commented Heinz Prechter, chairman and chief executive officer of ASC Incorporated. "The styling and packaging of this top maintains full trunk capacity in addition to offering potential expanded model range with an innovative, open-air design."
 Features:
 -- Manual top operation with glass backlite and articulating quarter windows
 -- Rigid top panels with headliner and dome light
 -- Coupe, seating for four with top up
 -- Roadster, seating for two with top down
 -- Mediterranean Coral Pearl paint
