Well my dad got a Pontiac Solstice from the GM plant to test on thursday, we have it for a week. Alls I can say about this car is WOW it is fast, and is sweet for the price. It is 2800lbs it has 177hp and 166lbs of torque and is a almost perfectly 50/50 balanced 2 seater w/convertable top. This car flys, its a 5spd it doesnt rip but is till good for a 4banger. (Everyone happy now or should I fix any other mistakes) :rolleyes: Here are a few pics

Oh man that car looks a whole lot better with its top down. They are bad ass though. Also just to let you know Ecotec does not = variable valve timing. Ecotec is just the name of the series of motors, like zetec and duretec for Ford,... B, K, D, F, H series for Honda,... Hemi for Dodge,... Vortec for GM and so on.

Yes Ecotec does not automatically mean VVT, but the 2.4 in the Solstice does indeed have VVT.

And I'm sorry but if you think a stock base solstice rips you need to ride in a performance car more often.

It starts at under $20,000, it is 2800lbs it has 177hp and over 200lbs of torque and is a almost perfectly 50/50 balanced 2 seater w/convertable top. This car flys, its a 5spd with varaible timing (ecotec as Cobalt guys like to call it) and this thing just rips threw every gear. Here are a few pics I took out in the driveway:

177hp and only 166 ft/lbs of torque. Where did you get over 200 from??? Under $20k it is base everything, no power windows or locks, no rear lsd, no ASB, no cruise control. For most people that car starts $22,500. :) Still very sweet, I can't wait to see how much higher they price the Sky at. Probably $22k but they will have all the features above standard. :D

do you know what ignorance means? let me give you an example. saying a car has over 200 ft lbs of torque when it really has 166. thats ignorance. i dont know why you got all mad and i dont think anyone "ripped" the thread apart. they just said the real torque so no one else is misinformed and that you made it sound a lot faster then it really is.

Look I fixed it, THE SOLSTICE DOES NOT HAVE OVER 200LBS OF TORQUE, LIED BECAUSE I AM A IGNORANT SOB. IT IS NOT A CAR THAT RIPS BECUASE IT IS NOT A PERFORAMNCE CAR BUT IS NICE FOR A 2 SEATER 4BANGER. (is everyone happy, just want to make sure I wouldnt want to make any mistakes and make anyone else have to correct them) By the way I am ignarant an I apologize, ADD sucks balls because I get things bass ackwards. On a funny note
