Very good read- they estimate 10-30k in production per year for the Solstice? 10k definitely seems too low for a vehicle that looks this nice. I believe the Mazda sells around 40k/year.

But it is awesome for GM that they have figured out how to make a car with potentially just 10k units/year at $25k on average profitable. That is not an easy thing! Just look at how many Cavaliers GM sells, losing money on each every one (hopefully Cobalt will reverse that).

You can thank CAFE requirements for that. I can't believe a system that forces manufacturers to sell cars for less than they cost to build just to offset fuel averages for the vehicles people actually WANT to buy!
