I've compiled a comprehensive production report of all 1,266 Solstice Coupes built. The report provides each vehicle’s color, specifies coupe/GXP, Manual/Auto, “Build” date*, export/domestic and some misc. data. Attached is a MS Word document with 4 high level overview areas including data split into the following segments:

• 102 pre-ship to commerce coupes w/ VINs from 9Y105993-9Y107442
• 1,152 sequential VIN Pontiac Solstice Coupes
• 12 Model year 2010s
• Final compilation statistics of all the above

Note: I found 102 Pre-ship to commerce coupes - 1 more than originally thought existed.

Second attached is an Excel file with 4 spreadsheets
1. Pre-ship to Commerce
2. Sequential VIN Coupes
3. 2010 Models
4. Total 1,266 cars on one spreadsheet

Instead of locking the info down as a PDF, I’ve had a number of people ask me for previous data I’ve provided it in Excel format so they can do their own searches within the data. I had to ZIP the file because the Forum's system was not allowing me to upload an XLS. So here you go. I’m hoping nobody takes this database - which as of now I know is accurate - and gets the data out of order and makes it into something that it is not. We all know the information that goes along with a VIN stays constant.

I’ve provided a brief explanation regarding Build Dates. I’ve also attached two screen grabs from the system that show how two VINs that are adjacent to each other actually have for lack of a better term "build dates" which differ substantially from one another. (One is VIN 9y107256 built on 3/23 and then VIN 276 built on 3/04... Don’t ask me). I've seen enough debate about that. The Important Thing is we have a count of all the vehicles and whether they are: GXP or N/A, Auto or Manual, what Color, and where in N. America they went.

In answer to questions about how much more production information can be provided and how much further can we break the info down, it’s not a question of can it be done, it’s a question of keeping someone’s sanity.

Summary of the 12 “2010” Coupes: Pre-production vehicles built in the 2nd Quarter of 2009. These models contain some new model features, and/or a new color/paint scheme offered for 2010.
Curious what those might be...

Glad this has been well received. I'm happy to have compiled the info.
For the models given 2010 designation, I belive the earlier poster had it right - a remote start feature would be one of the new items - for automatic models only though. Also new, was the Heritage Edition package and a Teal color. Other changes for 2010 models - the production year that never was - I'm not certain. I know there is no consumer literature in the mass market, or even an auto enthusiast magazine review that we can use to differentiate them. We'd have to compare the two years in person or gather them information from someone on the development side who knew all about the contents (visible and otherwise) for 2010s.

WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is the best and most complete information I have on any of my cars. (I collect late model, low production yellow convertibles, the Solitice coupe qualifies because of the removable soft top!) Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I spent many happy hours analzying the data you provided. It appears that all of the 2010 models were designated P.E.P./SPL EVENT, except 2. One went to Canada and the other was designated DEALER USED CAR (CVMS USE) and that car is the one that Morris Chevrolet has for sale. What are the meanings of those 2 designations? Is it possible that 10 P.E.P. coupes may not come up for sale? It would be great if we could determine who the eventual buyer of that car is/will be, or even have a forum member take his 2009 coupe to Morris to compare the 2 years. Thanks again for all of your efforts.

Cloth seating is for grandmas Buick.
And for 6-figure Mercedes SL300s.;)

Thanks again GXPvin49 for putting this in a spreadsheet format. Lots of fun.

I am certainly glad you enjoy the slippery cold slope when you enter your Coupe in the winter. Plus, if you would have the insert out, the mid-day sun on the Coretian ;) leather in the summer is another great feeling!

Sorry, it's not for me. :thumbs:

srsinger, My thoughts regarding what you were wrote on the notes I had for the 2010s...
First, I'd imagine something labeled a P.E.P. (in the Evaluation Program) will be sold at some point - but not my territory, just what I'd wager. And one of the cars went to Canada, or at least was built with the Canadian Spec. And lastly one GM CVMS (Company Vehicle Management System) designated Used for a GM Dealer to sell.

The ZIP app used was Stuffit - a Mac app that likely won't work on a PC. Had a friend with a Mac unzip it for me, and will PM you now.
