Racing the Pontiac Solstice

I strapped myself in alongside noted race car driver John Heinricy for a few laps around the Horse Thief Mile track at Willow Spring Raceway outside Rosamond, CA in the Pontiac Solstice GXP.

2006 Pontiac Solstice LS7 Corvette Powered Silvr Windermere022313
One of the most potent and beautiful custom work I've seen with this car! No need to despair of not having enough power! As I remember it, this car had been the owner's mother's...and a beautiful work of art it is.

GM Fixes Solstice? Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
MORE SOLSTICE COUPE @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Followup/articleId=142586?tid=e dmunds.il.home.photopanel..4.* Our hopes were high following the debut of the 2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe at the 2008 New York Auto Show last year. We had not forgotten the ergonomic shortcomings of the Solstice. Nor had its functional limitations slipped our minds. It was mechanically the same curvaceous Solstice that had made us swoon in 2006. Only now it had a bitchin' hardtop. So here we stand again with hearts racing and gaze locked on the 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. The GXP offers you 260 horsepower from its turbocharged Ecotec inline-4 and big tires to put the power to good use, so it's a lot more serious than the standard Solstice coupe. Its angled roof gives the coupe an angry, menacing stance unmatched by the roadster. This is the car we secretly want to like. In the back of our minds, we hope it's different from the 2006 Pontiac Solstice we lived with for a year in our long-term fleet. And perhaps it's a measure of the intensity of this hope that our disappointment is so devastating.

Solstice Trunk Mod - 2 1/2 inch Spring
Using a pair of 2 1/2 inch springs that I got from a hardware store, I added them to the mechanism that opens the trunk to allow it to open all the way instead of the stock 3-4 inches.

Pontiac Solstice
WebRidesTV's stunning Amber Goetz takes us for a look at Pontiac's new sports car, the Pontiac Solstice. The Solstice was introduced in 2004 at the NAIAS, or North American International Auto Show, and began production in 2005. You may get the car confused with other GM models as it shares the same chassis as the Saturn Sky or the European Opel GT. Produced and directed by Greg Harvey

Solstice GXP chasing Corvette Z06
Had a blast chasing this Corvette Z06 for several laps. Caught a yellow for one segment in the middle, but otherwise full speed. The Corvette driver gave me a pass a half lap before the end, and I did my best "nemesis" laugh for the microphone.

Putting the Top Down on the Pontiac Solstice
Showing just how easy it is to put the top down on the Solstice. This is done in a Solstice that doesn't include power windows or locks. Everything is manual so I have to open the trunk using the button in the glove compartment. Solstice owners with power options can open it using the keyfob, if so suited
