Motor Trend Oct issue

They rated the Solstice GXP in 1st place over the Z4 AND the 350Z!!!

This can only mean the Sky will beat out ANYTHING!!

My favorite quote was about the top....

"Not advisable during a red light, but if you think this is in any way a demanding operation, you have no business in such a car in the first place."

FINALLY... someone who can put the naysayers into place... GET OVER IT!

neat little article about it... not online yet but I got it in the mail today...
ALMOST makes me regret getting a NON RedLine

still love my car

And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

Lets hope the redline can break the 14 sec mark in the 1/4 mile. I think this is possible !

Now that... that... THAT is a real review. And a great one at that.

Man.... the writer painted such a perfect picture of the drive... I felt like I was behind the wheel!


Compare that to the Washington Times review (News Forum), which reads more like a marketing blurb than a review.

Thank you for the scan. I bet they are celebrating over at the Pontiac HQ. Now what about the Sky Redline's turn to blow up the competition?

What makes you think the Redline will be any faster than the GXP?

I wonder why they didn't compare it against the Honda S2000? It's closer in price than the Z4.
