    Rare Sight: Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe

    I snapped some pics. It was in a parking lot in the Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. It had a Florida tag.

    I like it as well.
    The coupe should have been launched before the 'vert, IMO.

    Too based the targa roof doesn't fit in the trunk.....

    That's a disaster waiting to happen....IMO.

    Cool looking car.......that I heard it's hold it's value pretty well.

    I remember driving one of the turbo verbs and thinking it was a fun drive.

    if I had the money for a fun car, it would be the Solstice coupe. Very sexy, fun to drive, and a collector's item (only about 1000 were made)
    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    Love it, except for the silly brake caliper covers.

    Soft targa cover was optional, and it will fit in car.

    I don't know, a Solstice without those trademark "humps" on the trunklid just doesn't do it for me...
