The Supercharged Solstice will be out around the same time. Or was it Turbo? Eh haven't been on my GM message boards lately.

however they said they where going to have a FF version of the "220" throuhg saturn in comming years about 1 1/2 years ago on top gear avalable in america. nothing in the same as far as perfomrance/drivetrain but the body and chassis will be similar.



ok here goes.

THe Vauxhaul currently is a Lotus vehicle.

the Sky is a Solstice, it is Kappa platform based. F.E., RWD platform. completely custom platform, hydroformed frame rails (Corvette). it is ONLY currently found in the Sky and Solstice.

HOWEVER.

the NEXT Vauxhaul Lightning will be Kappa based and supposedly will look like the Sky, but with a hardtop (its damn sexy).

That saturn is nicer looking than the pontiac. Wonder if you could get those badges removed =)

How much do you think the saturn will run? Sub 20G like the pontiac?

the saturn is projected in the 25k price point as a base, up to near 30k

the solstice is 19k up to around 25-26 fully loaded IIRC.

I predict the Miata will continue to reign as the best-selling and best overall roadster.

Solstice outsold Miata MX-5 5,362 to 4,821 from September through December, according to Autodata.

Not the old Miata... the MX-5.....And remember, they can't keep 'em on the lot, and they are doing a 3rd shift at the plant they are being built now... Granted they are only supposed to do about 20k a year...
