Did you check Road&Track and Car&Driver and those, they usually run those numbers in their articles. I remember that my old SC2 was in there as one of the most efficient cars out there for that stat. Not that they made any REAL mention of it, that would have made the car look better.

That .31 could go up or down. The front end is bigger thus more surface area, however it cuts the drag under the car too. Was this body kit wind tunnel tested?

I have no idea, that was the only thing I could find that had the Ion Coupe at all. Not that I know exactly where to find drag information normally, but that was all I could find with a search for 'saturn ion redline drag coefficient' and a few hours to look.

OK This is out of Super Streets 2005 Buyers guide

CD = D/(1/2xp Vsquared xA)
CD = Drag Coefficient, where D = Drag, p is air density, V is Velocity, and A is the cars frontal area.

I looked on their website for the article but can't find it.
