:agree: For me, I'm hoping that Pontiac leans in the subtle direction for once. Think about past performance version identifiers in the past, the HUGE Firebird decal on the hood and all the plastic body cladding on the Bonneville SSEi (one car mag called it the Bonneville See Me). They could learn from Chevy when to distinguish the nineties SS Impalla, they actually removed the Caprice's body clads.Fformula88 said:... but I always felt the big nostrils on the last WS6 Trans Ams was too much. The car certainly looked fast and hot without them. I don't think they did anything but take a terrific looking car and make it gawdy. I'd hate to see a Solstice get to the point where I thought it was gawdy too!
Subtle changes can also be effective. The Mercedes and BMW people seem to be able to make their AMG/M vehicles stand out without going to extremes.
oooh, I like your idea for the hoodscoops. I like your other ideas too, but I would have to change "not necessarily on the A pillar" to "NOT on the A pillar"AeroDave said:I would like to see mostly the same car, but with these changes:
Dual NACA Hood scoops (they're the kind that dip into the hood instead of sticking out)
Different wheels, maybe something blacked out.
Different grill and valance panels, like an actual metal mesh like on Bentleys
A boost guage, not nessisarily on the A pillar, as well as a more complete guage package.
Different color options for the interior.
And of coarse bright color and stripe options for all future Solstices.
