Yes, including wallpaper sized shots. Being a fan of smooth curves, I prefer the exterior of the Solstice. However, I think I prefer the Sky's wheel design.

Note that the specs are available in PDF.

Tempting

Dangit! I didn't expect it to actually look this good. Until now I've been expecting it to get screwed up somehow. I've been dead-set on Solstice. I'm still leaning toward Solstice, but I'm afraid the more I look at pics of the SKY, the more I'm going to like it.

I must say though, that I HATE the interior. It looks cheap and gaudy at the same time!

So, on the undercarriage they note a "torque sensing" limited slip differential. Is that what's commonly known as a "torsen-type" diff, or could it still be the clutch-type? If it's the torsen-type, I'm hoping this is the same one they are using in the Solstice. tor-sen makes sense to be a shortened way of saying TORque SENsing, but I honestly can't remember if that's the case.

It a good looking car but here are my complaints. The exterior styling is like every other sports car out now. It's a mix of C6, viper and a bunch of other stuff rolled into one. I'm already tired of these sharp edged designs. The interior quality is amazing but it's way to busy. The guages remind me of miata guages which is to say uninspiring. One of the things I like about the solstice is there isn't anything on the road like it. Styling wise. In the end I'm happy these cars are being built at all.

I really like this car too! In fact, I may end up in a big dilemma as to which Kappa I truly like better. I love the clean lines of the Solstice, but I am equally attracted to that side scoupe and sculpted lines of the Sky! Why did GM have to go and hit two home runs! I cannot possibly take them both home! :cuss :jester

They haven't said yet. I've seen a few quotes "less than $25,000", and "between $20,000 and $25,000". They could pop a few more options as standard and charge a bit more as base price.

HEY TROY

I uploaded the 1024 sized versions of the Sky pics from the Saturn website to the gallery section. Can you convert them to your space? I've used up about 70% of my available space, and if I come across better pics of "on road" cars I'd like to be able to upload them.

I was thinking about it if the price was $20,000, but if it goes any higher without a bigger engine, count me out.

GM has it listed as under $25,000. But if you look at the PDF you'll see a lot of the options from the Solstice appear base on the Sky. But I don't think there's enough though to make it worth $5000 more.

I started a thread about it over here.

Bob Lutz is also on record as saying the Solstice will cost $20K and the Sky will be more, but not by much. So I am guessing it will be significantly below the $25K point listed in the GM press release. How much would significant be? I dunno for sure, but it will be better than say $24,995! :smile
