I have been looking for a long time for this picture which comes from an EBAY add selling a Solstice Coupe. It shows the coupe with a Cobalt spoiler installed.

I think it integrates well with the design, there was a better picture but I feel lucky to find this one (the forum). I have emailed the former owner asking him to confirm it is the Cobalt spoiler and to also confirm clearance for the rear hatch.

Does anyone have a better picture? What is your opinion on the spoiler, yes or no?

From my point of view it looks like the car has a factory spoiler on it already so if that's the case it has two spoilers not a big fan of that look but it's not my car .I know there are members who have put Cobalt spoilers on their cars and they look good .I think there are two different spoilers one that came on the coupe and a different one for the sedan .

Not a spoiler fan here either - on most all cars. But if it's what the owner wants, go for it.

Yeah, it's a bad look. I imagine Norm could probably craft something wilder for his top replica, or make a version w/o the integrated spoiler if someone really wanted that tiny, silly wing.

There's a pretty serious couple spoiler on a car in the background of this post, https://instagram.com/p/BR9hQ3Vjm_V/, something actually useful if you need some downforce.

Some nice examples posted, thanks to all who gave input. I am fixed on the look he achieved on his coupe.

By examination of the original pictures I determined it is not the Cobalt wing. The tip of the wing as show in the pictures is rounded and does not look like the cobalt wing. I was able to contact the original owner of the coupe as he still sells on EBAY. First off, Warning to Coupe owners, HE LOVED HIS COUPE AND IS ONE SORRY DUDE HE EVER SOLD IT!

He indicates it was not the any of the Cobalt spoilers, "it was generic" and "we made it work" meaning it did clear the rear window. He could not remember who makes it. After searching EBAY I found this spoiler which is my best guess as to the source. It is available in 54 inch size which would stretch to the middle of the tail lights. With or without led's for third light, pricing from $180. Still not sure this is it.

Man, Norm pulled off something really special with those cool-azz rear side windows.

Almost makes me want to chop off my roof and put Norm's one on.

Learn something every day - didn't know any Sky coupes had been built. ;-)

No after market spoiler I've seen, including that one, looks as good as the original body.

The coupe has a lip integrated into the roof. Not removable.

Here's Norms coupe conversion, it extends too far for my taste but I like the way it's integrated.
That's the Sky specific top which has a bigger ducktail on it

There is a history of spoilers on Pontiacs, mind you (my overlapping Pontiac ownership).
