Yeah, I know what they're trying to say. I just don't need to resort to the "my car is better than your car" argument - I just let the numbers speak for themselves. And since GM is building more Solstices than Skys, then it seems the GM execs at least think the Solstice would be the better seller of the two.

The Solstice Targa is a hardtop coupe version of the Solstice with a "targa" top, similar to T-tops, scheduled for release in 2009 I believe. Targa is a very popular roof style seen in various sports cars, such as Porsche, Corvette, Camaro, etc.

In common usage, any piece of metal or trim which rises up from the side of a car and continues in an uninterrupted line over the roof and down the other side may be called a targa band, or sometimes a wrapover band. Targa tops are different from T-tops, which have a solid, non-removable bar running between the top of the windshield and the rear roll-bar.
There are a number of Solstice enthusiasts who have been hoping for a coupe version of the Solstice to come out, so hopefully this will satisfy their needs.

The coupe was on Bob Lutz's radar scope for a while. Per the Pontiac Solstice book, he is quoted as saying that when the roadster aura begins to fade it might be a good time to introduce the coupe.
