Chop,I think your low. It is now spring and coupes are holding their price pretty well, altough still depreciating . I would say 22 to 27 would be the range.

Thanks WM, I know my prices may seem low to some but it was the mileage that influenced my prices. That and I always have the mindset that if you want to sell a car, then price it to sell. YMMV.

No, the seller is just wrong. There were 281 coupes with manual trans.

And there were 41 silver GXP coupes with manual trans.



(Corrected to exact number when I had time to look it up)

GXP Coupes with manual trans = 288
GXP Coupes with auto trans = 562
NA Coupes with manual trans = 76
NA Coupes with auto trans = 339

(according to my list of all 1265 coupes)

YMMV

I knew that you'd show up sooner or later Dave - that's why I went back and looked up the correct number and corrected my post.

Having approximate numbers out there just increases chances of incorrect ads from people that just grab the first thing Google hands them to stick in their ad.

I agree, but I couldn't remember the numbers so I went back to my original spreadsheet and sorted it appropriately and pulled out the numbers from scratch. I know that his number was wrong, but I couldn't remember how much wrong.

Have a good one!

Do I sound biased when I say...no manufacturer has produced a two seat sports car in coupe form as beautiful as the Pontiac Solstice coupe??? I have to believe that there will be a time when the coupes will be considered very special vehicles by the automotive world.

I kinda of agree, even if I know I'm biased, but the real question is will we be alive to see it. At 63, I'll probably be druling all over myself before it happens. And the druel will not be over cars but loss of control.

It cracks me up how we all look at these cars so differently. I remember when Pontiac was going belly up a local dealer had two convertibles and a coupe. I looked at the coupe and thought, "pretty cool looking car but why would anyone want a coupe when they can have a convertible, especially when the convertible looks so much better top up or down." I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Yes. Yes, you do.

I love the coupes and am jealous of those that have one, but I think some owners of E-type Jags, C2 Corvettes and Ferrari GTOs (among others) may take exception to your comment. Actually, I'm pretty sure the owner of a Ferrari GTO doesn't really care about anyone else's opinions of automotive beauty.
