2006 EDAG Pontiac Solstice Hardtop

Quote:
(from EDAG Press Release) In its first-ever appearance at the Detroit Motor Show, EDAG will exhibit two show cars as proof of its competence when it comes to innovative development solutions, including small series production.

A world premiere will be the display of the Pontiac Solstice in a hardtop version. The American sports convertible comes from the factory with a cloth top which disappears under a flap in the back when retracted. The EDAG designers have designed a special hardtop, including a new boot flap, for the Solstice which not only puts a solid roof over the driverís head, but also gives the car a completely new appearance. Inspired by the Pontiac Safari station wagons of the 1950s and 1960s, the EDAG designers have come up with a dynamic, elegant and contemporary variant of a sports estate.

This is a concept by a German engineering & design company (www.edag.de) . They do not produce them.

Unlike many of you, I really like it. It gives a number of options to the owners that people have wanted for years. A fun car to drive with acres of storage coupled with the ability to morph back into a roaster with a little planning. It solves the long trip storage dilemma without making the owner really give up anything long term.

I like the Nomad look and it would make a nice complement to my 57.

I don't know if I would "own" one but it is a neat idea and something for the car show guys to show off.

Not the one I ordered but love what I got: Cool, ebony int.,polished, ABS, LSD, all others but XM, On Star and I will miss the Monsoon. MSRP and nothing more.

GM, just let Chevy build the Nomad! Trust me, I'll buy one! However, I look forward to checking out this version as well as Chewievette's.

Thanks again Bob, for building my car! Envious/Ebony VIN #0051

It doesnt look that bad, but a coupe top would be better thats for sure.

I've got the Nomad model sitting here on my desk. Like the Solstice was for me, it's one of those "gotta have" cars.
