Default Pontiac Solstice - Sickest 20-25k car EVER

Wow, this car is absolutely amazing. Has anyone taken it for a test drive yet? I'm 6'3 and I was able to fit into the seat pretty comfortably at a car expo. I haven't driven it yet though.

Fully loaded with leather seats and like everything, it goes for about 25k including onstar. Does anyone know if people can install custom hard tops around California, because I don't really want a soft top - it's too easy to get broken into.

For posterity, here are some pictures.







It reminds me of the Jag convertible if it were a 2 seater in looks and body design. Anyone who has driven both this and the Mazda MX-5 have a comparison they can give us?

Jeez that looks like a dopey way for a hood to open. Same with the trunk. Kinda perverse.

Nice looking car, but it looks like a 5 mph impact in front will set you back $2k.

And at 6'3" you must have had to kick out one grille facing with each foot.

You can get a used s2000 for less than 20000 and it will break alot less than the pontiac. The s2000 is a dream to drive and in my opinion much better looking than the pontiac but at 6'3 it might be a bit tight.

Although the Pontiac looks great, that's about it. Compare the Honda with the Mazda and pick your favourite.

I am 6'6 and the s2000 is a very tight fit for me so the OP probably won't find it comfortable.
