The unsuccessful Cadillac XLR will be dumped before then. The other rumor is that GM will end Sky & Solstice production by 2010!

You GM people...what are you hearing out there? Any truth to any of this?
This post certainly seems prophetic, 20 months after it was made.

But at this point it's not about the market. It's about what needs to be done to keep the planet in a state that supports humans.

True that. These cars wont mean a thing if there's no Earth to drive them on/

Well I really hope that they will continue to produce kappa cars. They are just so fun to drive.

With 4 pages I didn't go through every post but the plant was closed 31 July 2009. The latest is that Biden, who was the senior senator from Delaware before the VP job, cut a deal and Fisker is going to make their electric car at that plant for their US sales. But, talking with Saturn and the Chevy liaison to our Corvette Club, the Kappa platform is gone with that plant's closing.
