    Since gm is about to bring out these two new hot cars i am looking at OT to see what their thoughts are on the comparision between these two very similar autos. I believe the only real substantial differences that i have noticed are just aesthetic and different design cues that better correlate with the design direction with each brand. But i read somewhere that the red line will have an extra 7 hp or somethin like that. So this said OT speak your mind.

    Both have too much chrome. And the non-body color windshield surround is terrible.

    I like the look of the Sky more, but voted Solstice since it isn't as gaudy with the chrome.

    One of the hottest looking roadsters ever. I'm proud of them.

    I can't believe saturn could have that much style.

    i like the saturn's look more, but i'd rather have the ls7 solstice they are building in hotrod mag
     
  10. mallet is selling them with the ls2, I think it was another 25000 (?) on toip of the base price, but performed great, there was a thread here about it.


    thedguy: actually these cars a new chassis/design. They are not rebadged opels

    Negative. It was all designed here. The Saturn is going to be rebadged as an Opel in Europe.

    $20K for the base package... up to $XXK for the 600hp package. :eek3:

    They also have the Sky listed on their main page but no info anywhere else. :bigthumb:

    Does anyone else think that the Solstice (all versions, not just the GXP) looks like Ace and Gary's (The Ambiguously Gay Duo) car from Saturday Night Live?
