Interesting:
Old News, but still interesting, is that GM has refreshed its tradmark on the Chevelle name as of February 2nd, 2003.

SPV was registered by the Saturn Corporation (dunno what that is all about) as of February 7th, 2003.

There will probably be either a new Holden or a Holden concept next year named the SV300, as it was registered in New Zealand and Australia as of February 24th and 26th respectively.

Mercedes Benz will launch a new line called the X-Series, which will have X 400, X 320, X 280, X 550, X 450, X 350 X55, X500, X63 designations, implying it will be powered by several engines, a 2.8L Engine, a 3.2L, a 3.5L, a 4.0L, a 4.5L engine, and a 5.5L engine and a 6.3L engine, which will probably be the AMG due to the absence of the last 0. However the X55 may be an AMG as well.

Here is when and where the trademarks were scheduled, so it may be a world-wide vehcile.

Nahh... Red Line is supossed to be that
Saturn Performance Vehicles could be the name of the group modifying the RedLines. think PVO and SRT-xx

but this is probably only a pipe dream on my behalf.

Hmmmm....anything to do with "Saturn Motorsports"? :

For the 2004 Model year, Saturn motorsports will be releasing the Ion Quad Coupe in a tuned turbocharged version with HP/Torque numbers estimated in the 300-350 range, running Alpine ICE, and some other mods such as APC Bodykits, Motegi or Enkei wheels and a few other parts.

Or they could have just copyrighted the name for like clothing, hats, memorbila.... GM does make that stuff...
Why make hats, clothing, etc. for a car that has been dead for decades? I think Branden is right about the concept leading to the Camaro.

Yes, I know it seems stupid to market memoribla from a car that hasn't been produced in decades, but they do, my friend has a t-shirt with Chevelle on it and it says on the tag that the name is trademarked by GM. and it is a fairly new shirt.. ;) I agree too, i look for it to be a concept car a NAIAS..

Registering the name just prevents other companies from ever using it.

We wouldn't like to see a Hyundai Chevelle anytime soon.
This raises an interesting point - I saw an older Chevy S-10 "Durango", or was it "Dakota" recently....there was another similar name used by another company, can't recall it though. I've also noticed how some tire makers have tires named after vehicles, like Wrangler and Bronco.

the S10 was Durango. It was a package on the 4wd s10's in the late 80's. :D
