President Trump was not treated to an all-new presidential limousine on inauguration day as previously reported, but that vehicle is still on schedule to be ready by the end of the year.
However, Jalopnik took a gander back through the archives to see what other kinds of vehicles have been submitted for being a possible state car, and there are certainly some funky submissions. One, in particular, is relevant for this space, though.
In 1993, General Motors submitted a Saturn SL1 presidential limousine for consideration as former President Bill Clinton’s ride. This is totally real. We’re sure the use of its plastic bodywork, what Saturn has always been known for, may have been a minor decision to go with a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood instead through Clinton’s presidency.
Plus, riding around in GM’s proposed import-killing brand just doesn’t seem up to snuff for any president.
