"GM is optimistic about the Kappa platform's potential. The test comes with the launch of the Solstice roadster, and then the Saturn Sky convertible, which follows in early 2006. "If it works," said the automaker's product chief, "we'll do more." And based on early results, that seems likely. Pontiac already has taken about 9000 advance orders for Solstice, and is looking at ways it could boost production from about 1500 vehicles a month."

Now aren't you glad Pontiac wasn't killed off..... ;)

Solstice coming in August!!!!

I don't know if I like the look of the coupe though. I mean if we are going to buy a car like this, isn't it better as a convert....

It might be a wait though, (as the article implies) because they will probably have to distribute them to the first 9,000 who already ordered them....

Im mixed on it as well, but it does look more aggressive. It will allow the Solstice to shrug off the "chick car" label to some degree.
