Last Pontiac Solstice Rolls Off Assembly Line as GM Closes Another Plant


Earlier this week General Motors officially turned off the lights and locked the doors at its Boxwood Road assembly plant for the last time, marking the end of the line for the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky.

The two vehicles (along with the Opel GT) were manufactured at the plant in Wilmington, Delaware, which is being closed as a part of GM's restructuring process.

General Motors has decided to eliminate the Pontiac brand and sell Saturn to the Penske Automotive Group. The announcement to close the plant came on July 1st when GM filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. At the time GM gave short notice to plant workers saying the facility would be shuttered by the end of July.

GM spokesman John Raut said the final vehicle to roll off the assembly line was a silver Pontiac Solstice.

Up there in the top menu bar is this thing called search. It is your friend, but only if you use it.

You asked for the total number of Skys built since 2007, I answered 34,415, with a link to the thread where it was currently being discussed, as well as a tip for finding it for yourself.
