I likes it. The front end looks better than the normal Solstice.

very very cool.. this thing is gonna haul ass.. i drove a regular Solstice myself and it was pretty peppy with that 175hp.. and surpising enough, it was not as cramped as you might think for such a small roadster.. i am 6'2" 300lbs and i was pretty comfortable.. i would say it's not much more crampted than the C6 cockpit which i've also driven

EVO ripped this thing (the NA version, anyway) a new one... they say it just doesn't drive well at all. Before you say they are anti-American car, in the very same issue they gave 4 out 5 stars to the new Viper coupe, 5 to the new Roush 'Stang and said how excited they were to try the new Hemi Grand Cherokee.

C&D compared the NA solstice with a miata, and the solstice came out on top.. i've driven the solstice and it drives amazingly well.. comparable to that of the corvette.. the near 50/50 weight distribution with the tranny in the rear is awesome around the corners

here is more pics, high res, and lots of info.. that motor is amazing.. very high tech, awesome

I forget which review it was (C&D or Motor Trend), but one of the American auto magazines did indeed compare the Solstice favorably with the Miata, but they commented that the Miata was more nimble, where the Solstice was more set up for cruising, etc. I'd still take the Miata over the base Solstice, honestly.

C&D notoriously pans most american cars.. they love this thing..

the only thing the Solstice lost on was top operation, practicality (trunk space..) and interior....

the solstice clearly wins the ride and handling department..

#11, which makes my link to the thread better, one click, and all you gotta do is scroll to see all the pictures.. as opposed to click link, click back, click next link, click back.. etc

you also spin out on straights, and lose to the FD of mild discomfort

p.s. buy PGR3
