Gravana Solstice Body Kit

Thank you for the warm welcome! Now that we have started work on the Gravana Pontiac Solstice Project Vehicle, we have decided to release a rendering of the new Pontiac Solstice with one of our three planned Body Kit upgrades. These images show the most aggressive of the three kits, the Gravana TD-R kit, which hit home with the under-40 attendees of our two focus groups. Without Pontiac badging on the renderings, European Performance Roadster was the common description for this concept. Ironically, the idea comes from 24-year-old Matt Teske, the design guru who has been instrumental in Gravana’s success in reaching targeted audiences with new products. Look for two lower lip options to follow.

Equally important, Gravana is developing and/or partnering with other manufacturers to bring the following upgrades to market for the Solstice:

  • Body Kits (3 styles from a mild lip kit to full aggressive Teske Design body kit)
  • Hoods (Turbo-Sport style follow factory lines improving airflow and heat extraction without being obtrusive)
  • Rear Deck Cover (Carbon Fiber for weight reduction and style)
  • Air Intake System
  • Header & Downpipe
  • Exhaust System
  • Carbon Fiber Engine Cover(s)
  • Short Shifter
  • Sway Bars
  • Sport & Race Lowering Springs
  • Adjustable Coil-Over Suspension (Damping & Ride Height Adjustable)
  • Rear Deck Luggage Rack (2 designs for OEM & Gravana rear)
  • Slotted Rotors & HP Pads
  • Big Brake Kit (ETA - Late October.)
  • Audio/Video Upgrades (We are working with Boston Acoustics on several options, including a G5 Subwoofer kit that requires only ½ Cubic Ft. of rear volume space.)

Quite often, along with a new vehicle launch, come new start-up companies trying to sell you vaporware. Gravana is an established company, with products in-development and a primary goal to support the Solstice owner to the best of our ability! In addition, we will make every effort to offer the widest selection of products at the best prices. You are the owners who drive the demand for new products. We would love your comments and suggestions. Whether it is gears or floor mats, please tell us what else you want for your Solstice! Thanks again!

Best regards,

Jim

That is a hot chop. Some were asking just the other day about a scoop and this is the best looking one to date! IMHO ... and I am more of a "purist."

Thank you. The airflow dynamics of the Solstice front end push air too high up and over the car to gain any true ram-air effect, so we are still contemplating an open drop for the air inlet (like we have on both of our GTO hoods) versus a ram-air style sealed box that connects to the factory intake system. We will see what happens...

Do you have any plans for the Sky? Any photochops?
We started working on our Sky concepts but nothing is concrete at this point. It is a completely different animal, in terms of design characteristics and opportunities for changes. However, we will commit the same level of support to Sky owners. We are 100% General Motors. From Pontiac and Saturn to Saab and Hummer, our business model is based on GM brand loyalty and building long-standing relationships with GM vehicle owners.

Welcome, Jim. I'm not to far, in Ventura.

One thing I'd like to see are custom replacement gauges. The OEM's are nice but when I saw the red ones in the GTO, I nearly...well, it would have been messy :leaving: . An assortment of colors would be wicked.

I'm sure I could think of more good shtuff...especially once I get the car!!!

I really like the way that render looks, can't wait to see it. Not to be a pain, but could you ball park the estimated price for that kit? Also, are you going to be making any lambo doors?

This is sure to make some people happy.

I guess I must be too old...I m only 33 btw...but I really prefer the original design better. I do like this, but if I were looking at this kit, I would just buy a Sky. I like the curves and lask of sharp angles of the Solstice. Most cars today are angular wedges and just unappealing to me. Just my .02!

The three external styling things I'm desiring is a front spoiler for the current nose, a dual exhaust/rear diffuser panel, and an addon mini spoiler kinda like the Corvette ones, or a replacement CF rear decklid with something built in. Maybe a little mini spoiler like we've seen on the Sky or the MR2 Spyder JDM ones.
