How did the Sol GXP land 41k? I guess the first one listed had some hungry buyers.

If you noticed the redline went to a dealership, makes sense so they have something on the lot* for people to look at and test drive.

*Sticker on it will probably be 40k +

The GXP landed it because it's a great looking car. Does this surprize you ? I keep saying that all people don't prefer the Sky like some of you think . It's personal taste ! :) :)

I guess im not surprised as much as curious since there is another GXP on ebay now for 31K Buy-it-now... I wonder how fast the lookers at the 41k auction will jump on this one.

I was not happy to see the Sky go. I had gotten used to looking at it and some of the differences between it and the standard model, that I didn't care for at first, began to grow on me. However, I would never like the tiny 2 litre engine. Normal driving is not the same for everyone. Hot foots who are always into the turbo boost might find it "peppy", but to a conservative driver like myself, I found it down right sluggish. When the AC comes on the tiny 4 struggles to make it up an overpass..unless you gun it. Compared to the instant torque and power of big V-8's, that I am accustomed too, this car is not fast. I think 260 hp is a made up figure. I know it can't compare to the 400hp I had in my last C-6 Vette, but I'd put an '87 corvette with only 240 HP (If I remember right) against it any day of the week..the turbo wouldn't stand a chance. In normal driving the Sky 177hp feels like it has more power. It also has a much better ride. The RL jolts you with bumps that are invisable until you hit them. It makes a smooth road into a rough one. I have never seen so many wheel weights on any car as on the RL wheels. The Good Year performance tires must be terribly out of balance. The turbo engine also makes the front end of the car feel heavy...no more near 50-50 balance.

True, I made some money on the car, but had I to do it again, I would never have ordered it. For all the owners of the standard Sky..be happy, you are not missing much !!

Your the first one I heard say anything negative about the performance of the GXP or the Red Line. It must be you. Maybe because you have driven a 400 hp. But one of the GXP owners has a 400 hp vette and still praises the performance of the GXP. But if it wasn't for you you did the right thing I guess.
