    pretty nice..

    the front end is growing on me..

    kinda reminds me of one of those small mercedes SLK verts..

    saturn sky is still better though :o
     
  2. The Sky turbo version is going to be insane.

    theres going to be a turbo Sky?

    since when does GM use turbos :eek3:
     
  5. It will use the same engine as the Cobalt SS except with a Turbo instead of a Supercharger and will be making 260HP from the factory. :wiggle:

    too bad it's 5 years too late and it still can't hold a candle to the s2000
     
  8. The Sky is better looking (IMO), Cheaper and more powerful than the S2k :dunno:

    looks are obviously subjective but the sky is more powerful? :hsugh:
     
  12. I liked it in both. The S2K is a sexy car but I like the Solstice's looks better than any other car in the market it competes with.
     
  13. Did you not read the rest of the thread? :hsugh:

    Why would they use the same engine but turbo it when a SC is already developed? Doesn't seem to make much sense, but of course this is the worst auto manufacturer there is we are talking about.

    the turbo allows for more power across the entire rpm range. They also switched up to a unique direct injection system.
