Pontiac Solstice: concept vs. reality

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on September 17, 2005


There’s been a lot of hype about the new Pontiac Solstice lately. Frankly, I’m amazed that Pontiac has come through with such a faithful representation of the 2002 concept.

Here’s how the production car stacks up to the concept. By the way, the car pictured here is the production version. Click here to see the concept.

Similarities:

  • The wheels on the concept look almost identical.
  • The coves behind the sidemarkers made it.
  • Most importantly of all: the price (less than $20,000)!

Differences:

  • The funky top & bottom dual exhaust was nixed.
  • The side mirrors are a bit different.
  • The concept was shown with a six-speed transmission, the production car makes do with five forward gears.
  • And the interior only loosely resembles the concept.

Great job, Pontiac!
