Solstice may be delayed...


See you in September: Production snafus may delay launch of Pontiac Solstice roadster until fall
JASON STEIN | Automotive News and ROBERT SHEREFKIN | Automotive News
Posted Date: 4/25/05

DETROIT -- If early orders are an indication, Pontiac could have a winner in its Solstice roadster. GM quickly booked 1,000 orders for the two-seat convertible this month during a TV promotion.

But now GM says it won't ship a significant number of Solstices to dealerships until this fall - well past its summer target date meant to coincide with the peak of the convertible selling season.

Industry sources say fit problems are delaying the launch at GM's Wilmington, Del., plant.

In material distributed to reporters in January at the Detroit auto show, Pontiac said the Solstice was "expected in Pontiac showrooms in mid-2005." But GMTV, GM's Webcast media site, said last week that the car won't be on dealer lots until the fourth quarter. GM spokesmen say the Solstice will arrive in substantial quantities in late September or early October.

Well, I for one sure would like to get some photos of one in red. I think that would be
a really badass color on the Solstice. If you end up in line for one... let us know.

red solstice

Since I could not find a picture of an "aggresive" solstice, I created one. I think the color came out pretty close to what is in the catalog. Sorry, I couln't help myself, I had to lower and put wheels on it.

That's close to perfect....and how I would like mine. Maybe decrease the wheels and inch or two though. Anything over 18 just starts to look ricer/ghetto, not to mention would ride like crap.

Just got the latest from my Dealership here in Whitby, Ontario.
2 of the 11 ordered will be delivered on Sept 1/05 and they don't know which two until August.
I am hoping that one will be mine as i have picked all the options and the most common color.
fingers crossed!!!

Ohhhhhhhh! I have to wait longer??? I can't move into my new 5000 square foot house until September 1, so I am waiting for that... NOW, I have to wait to see this car? Ugh! I hope it goes by fast. This is my first summer ever that I WANTED it to go by fast. Good things are worth waiting for!!!
