Hi there!

At work I park next to a 1995 Miata and an S2000 (not sure what year). The S2000 is a good looking car. I've never driven one but I would imagine it's a nice car. Strangely I've never seen the one at work with the top down.

There's also a 350Z convertible at work. I don't like that car very much with the top up, but it does look a lot better with the top down than the coupe version.

I'm not asking for a 300 hp fwd / awd, or even rwd monster. Just give us a Convertible Sports car on the Kappa Platform. I was a huge GM supported, but i don't see a new car that i would purchase. If anything i would have to search for a low milage older GM vehicle. It's upsetting. The corvette and the Camaro are both " flagships" but they are literally telling customers to buy other manufacturer cars. I took my fiance' car shopping, and they told me to check out the genesis for her..... with that being said we left the dealer without making a purchase.
Combined to sell what? A small sports car should be offered by GM, but GM doesn't need Pontiac or Saturn to do that.

Is not bad looking.
Let's see what happens with the sales of the 2014 Vette in the next 6 to 10 months.
If they start to go soft maybe GM will go back and resurrect something similar to our Solstice.
The Genesis R spec is pretty potent, I just can't see my money going to Hyundai, but it is nice.

I think Vette sales will be good. This still shouldn't impact an entry level sports coupe like the Solstice/Sky. They really don't compete if you keep the concept intact and keep the Sol/Sky entry about $20k less.
