    Hot Solstice Selling $6,000 Over Sticker

    DETROIT — The new 2006 Solstice roadster is commanding as much as $6,000 over sticker price on AutoTrader.com, eBay and at dealerships, making it the hottest Pontiac in recent memory.

    As of September 19, AutoTrader.com reported that the highest price for a Solstice was $26,500, while the average price was $23,998. The Web site said the lowest price for a Solstice was $22,795. The Solstice starts at $19,995 and rises to $24,700 for a fully loaded model.

    One eBay bidder paid $32,900 for a Solstice, according to Automotive News. Buyers are shelling out the biggest premiums for the first 1,000 cars, which were sold to consumers through a promotion on Donald Trump's popular TV show The Apprentice.

    Demand for the Solstice is far outstripping supply. GM said it will build about 7,000 Solstices this year, even though Pontiac dealers have ordered as many as 13,000.

    What this means to you: Expect to pay top dollar if you want to get your hands on the hottest Pontiac in years.

    its no biggie, a lot of new cars are pulling over sticker when they first come out and supply is low

    Those people are going to be kicking themselves paying that much money for an early production run GM product that will be on every corner in a year.

    I love the Solstice and the Sky. :bowdown:

    And you will have people pissed that the dealers gouged them on the price after they get over the new car high.
