...heard it from a friend who works on the Solstice/Sky in some capacity or another....

Keep an eye on the September issue of GQ.

And I thought you only read it for the pictures. :lol: Me, I'm waiting for PB, MAXIM, and FHM to review. We will all say to our spouses as we point and drool, "Honey , isn't that HOT? Wouldn't it be fun to take HER for a spin?" :glol:

What with the cars actually being in a few lucky mortal's possession, I'm hoping that the embargo finally get's lifted September 1 and with it, a flood of reviews from all the car magazines as well as "gentleman's periodicals."

The shindig in Oregon was the long-lead media blitz so from that episode will come all written reviews for teh next month or two.

Solstice Steps Out in GQ ... the Solstice on a European tour is featured in the pages of the September issue of GQ magazine. Pontiac had arranged for a GQ reporter and photographer to drive the car in Germany and Italy in June. The result is a four-page story that offers numerous positive comments from the reporter himself about the Solstice, and even details some grudgingly positive remarks from several Europeans who were not used to seeing an American car with a degree of "European" style.

-"The sleek new Pontiac Solstice is the best-designed (and most affordable) American roadster in decades."

-"The new Solstice is, in fact hot."

-"(The Solstice) has what may well be the most beautiful trunk in the history of two-doors."

-"The Solstice is a throw-back - a rear-wheel drive , five-speed stick - with a sport-minded stiffness that makes the car not so much macho but fun to drive, not an Autobahn car but a backroadmobile."

-"In Milan, the Solstice made a triumphant entrance down the Corso Buenos Aires pas the Porto Venezia. I felt like Caesar back from the Gallic campaigns."

.......and it has what may well be the most beautiful trunk in the history of two-doors: Each headrest is trailed by its own aerodynamic shadow, two gentle rolls that make sheet metal look like the waves of the Aegean.
Lifted from GM Inside News's cut & paste of the article.

"

Just what decade and what American roadster is referred to here?

I for one, cannot think on any American roadster that even compares.
