How Many of the 16K GXP Verts Still on the Road?

Does anyone have info on how many of the 16K total GXP convertibles are still on the road, or under 50K miles o them?

I have a 2007 with 40k km. However, it's not on the road, it made it home and is in my garage. ;-p

"16K total GXP convertibles" -- huh ?? where did this number come from ?
There were 4+ model years totaling over 100k convertibles ( solstice + sky + others ).

16k out of 100k is way too low a number for GXPs...

There were 34,417 Sky's made, just under half were Redlines. 2007 numbers 16K total. 4200 being Redlines is what I have found. No one has and exact number on the Redlines for 2007, but the 4200 is considered the correct area.

There were over 64,000 Solstice made, so I would guess there were closer to 30K of the GXP made

The most common number I have heard is 60% GXP, and total Solstice production was 65,724, of which 1,266 were coupes.

60% of 64,458 is 38,700.

Coupe production was 67% GXP.

For what it's worth, I just checked the coupe database: 849 GXP out of 1266 total cars or a touch over 67%.

60% is a fairly good estimate for convertible GXPs over the entire run over the 4 years. 2006 had no GXPs so that drags the overall percentage down a bit.

I had heard that GXP to NA was between 64% to 68% for 2008 and 2009. 2007 was not a full year for GXP production so the number was lower.

John's number is a good estimate.

I was/am only concerned with the GXP, not all Solstice convertibles. (This is serious as I have several beers riding on the numbers!) I got the number from this website, not sure how accurate as I have a devil of time getting hard GM data.

Modern collectibles revealed: Pontiac Solstice GXP and Saturn Sky Red Line | TFLCar.com

SOLSTICE:
Between 2006 and 2010 there were around 62,000 Solstice Convertibles and around 1,200 Solstice Coupes produced. Now, lets zero in on the GXP variant. Out of all Coupes produced, 781 were of the GXP flavor. And there were around 13,000 Convertible GXP examples. Since, Pontiac no longer exists, we can be sure that these numbers will stay as they are.

Itís safe to say that the GXP Coupe has the needed rarity to qualify for the collectibility formula. Whether, the GXP Convertible qualifies is more up to debate. In the case of the convertible, more break down maybe needed: a rare year, a rare color or manual versus automatic transmission, etc.

SKY:
Between 2007 and 2010 there were around than 34,000 Sky Convertibles produced. Out of all, approximately 12,000 were the high performance Red Line version. This number still looks a bit high, so a further breakdown may be necessary. For example, there were around 1,300 Red Lines produced in 2009, and this number makes this year more desirable.

How good are these numbers??

TFLcar is just plain wrong when it comes to the total of GXPs and Redlines. I have no idea of where they got their numbers.

Overall, GM did not account for the percentage of GXPs to overall production, but they did account for total production each month.

There are numerous threads on both Solsticeforum and Skyroadster discussing production numbers. During the Solstice and Sky runs, I tracked monthly production on Solsticeforum and Reedred tracked monthly production on the Skyroadster forum. While we tracked things a bit differently, we both were using the same numbers as published monthly by GM. After the plant closing, he and I reconciled our production totals and agreed on the totals.

GM published production and sales numbers for the Wilmington plant, and recorded production for Solstices, Skys and Opel GTs in their production numbers. They did not publish numbers for the base vs. turbo production.
