To the casual observer, they may not notice the difference between RL and base (except for the Turbo insignia on the back).

Do you like the "closer to base" look of the Redline, or did you expect body changes that really distinguished it from the base (not to put in same category, but think Neon SRT-4 or WRX sti)?

Also...Do you think there is a future Sky/Solstice version that cranks the HP and styling up even further? Ya know, what Shelby does with the mustang.
(Possibly should be a seperate thread...)

There are already aftermarket shops to do just about anything you want to a SKY. Mallet will drop in a LS2 Vette motor. Hahn is making turbo kits.

I think that in the near future the SKY will have the same mystic as the Vette curently has. There will be magazines dedecated to the SKY and all kind of companys will be making after market add on for the SKY.

I think the subtle stuff is good but I think a lightly diffrent hood (bigger air vents maybe) would have done some good.

If I was to get a RL -- I think the "closer to base" look would be just fine. For car buffs -- they'd know what to look for and for those not in the know -- who are thinking 177hp -- well, imagine the look on their face when you pull away!

Is the fake exhaust vent coming on the redline? That will distinguish it I would think. Besides, think of pulling up to a light and blowing some poor unsuspecting persons doors off!!!! They will remember that!:lol:

BE realistic, it's not a vette. Compare past cars for a good look into the future for car clubs, magazines, aftermarket:
Fiero, BMW Z3, Miata, MR2, MG, Triumph, etc...

I see the Sky/Solstice at about a Fiero/Miata level

It is not fake, it is dual exhaust from the muffler.

Personally, most of the body kits and ground effects do not appeal to me. Leave those type of mods to cars that need it to try to look hot!

I think this car will have a very loyal following, and will end up as a car that can be modified to the gills. In 5 years all the kids will want to heat the sky up and after market suppliers will rake in the money...and all of us first year owners will have a reunion and talk about when we had the SKY to our selves....seal9:lol: :lol: :lol:

Camaro type dual outlet, it's only a single pipe into the muffler unless they want to do something silly like split the outlet after the turbo into two or whatever and put in two mufflers. I guess that would cut down on the sound slightly maybe.

I'm talking about the grill between the two seats, looks sort of Ferrarri-Lotus inspired. Almost looks like the engine was there instead of in the front.

Nothing fake about dual outlets from one muffler...when u have 260 torque and 260 HP behind it....somebody show that man out the door!

Just as an aside...the ION upgrade engine is the 2.4 indicating 170 HP...is that the same engine that we have? If it is, why is ours 177 HP?

There is no grill in there -- are you looking at a shot showing the optional LUGGAGE Carrier??

It's the same engine...there was a change in how HP is measured...if you look at the first info about the SKY, it was stated 170 HP also. (or so I've read :) )

My son has the 2.4 ION...it's nice.
