I found a Solstice with 49 miles for sale today by a private owner and had the opportunity to test drive it over about 10 miles of twisty, hilly back roads. I have to say I am very much impressed. The car handles superbly and rides really well for a sportscar. The only thing I have to compare it with is a 2.8 liter BMW Z3 which I previously owned and my 3.0 liter BMW Z4 and 2.0 liter Miata which I presenly own. First it rides and handles every bit as well as the BMW's. I find it very similar to the Z3. It definitely rides and handles better than the Miata. Both the BMW's and the Miata seem quicker though. The Solstice seems a little underpowered. I wasn't real fond of the longer throw in the Solstice shifter (compared to the Miata) and there seemed to me to be power lag ratio problem from 2nd to 3rd gear. But all that aside, these are beatifully designed automobiles and when you factor in the exterior and interior looks....no contest. Since a hot engine is not that big a deal with me, I can't wait to get my Sky! I would definitely order the super charged redline though if it was available.
