new pontiac solstice coupe 8216 vertently revealed

Another day, another leak. Pontiac's PR "accidentally" posted a preview of the NY Auto Show's debut on Pontiac's website, and it "accidentally" contains a picture of the Solstice coupe that's headed for production. The coupe will do away with the convertible's biggest flaw: being a convertible. Then again, it also means giving up the Solstice's biggest redeeming quality: when the top is down, it's a pleasant roadster. That said, it should be a hoot when set up with the 2.0-liter, 260-horse turbo. Camaro cannibalization? Of course not. We'll have pictures from the NY show in a few days. In the meantime, when are we going to stop these blatant attempts at media manipulation "leaks?"

    I'd take the Solstice coupe with the turbo 4 over the Camaro any day of the week. That could be a very fun little car to drive, but only if it is priced similarly to Hyundai's new RWD coupe...but it seats 4 (not sure I'd put anyone but small children in the back of it).

    Actually, that looks like a pretty nice car. I'd buy one, after the hype wears off and I can get it with $3,000 off and 0% financing.

    What an ugly front

    How much is the base model going to be, do you think?
