New sales lead takes over at GM. Looks like they will be looking to Solstice to begin lifting GM out of it's doldrums.
Article:The automaker needs a Chrysler 300 to get people to sit up. Instead, it has the Cobalt, G6, Caddy STS and LaCrosse, none of which analysts expect to appeal as much to people outside of GM's existing customer database. On top of sleepy introductions of the Chevy Malibu and Equinox, and public indifference to the SSR and Pontiac GTO, GM simply needs some product mojo outside of a niche product like the Corvette. That could come in the form of the Pontiac Solstice in the 2006 model year, but that car will have to achieve Mazda Miata-like stardom to lift GM the way the 300 has lifted Chrysler and the way H2 briefly lifted the General last year.
