Check out page 125 of the May issue of Cargo magazine. It is in stores now. It has a production version blue Solstice that is gorgeous and the interior is blue/white leather. Color is different than what it looks like in other pics.

Well, I rushed out and bought the magazine.
The blue is a great color, better than the photochoped images here.
The interior is the steel/sand two tone that we have seen, but the lighting used for the photoshoot, plus the overall blue of the car make the grey interior color look a bit blue.
I really like the direct top-view picture, shows the very nice subtle hourglass of the car body.
The Solstice made the cover as well, but really only shows the through the windshield view, and the body color is a bit gray.
See page 125 for an amazing shot of the blue.

Here's to hoping these picture make it to the web for all to enjoy.

I'm going to try to pick up a copy on the way home tonight if no one else gets some scans in first. I've got a decent scanner at home.

I stopped by a few stores on my way home. I guess that mag isn't available in Canada. Pics soon please!

The goods...

Looks a bit lighter than I hoped/expected (and I think my scan came out slightly brighter than the actual picture). Nonetheless, I LIKE it!

All that blue exterior does make the interior look kinda blue as well. But once you stare at it long enough you can tell it's the gray/tan interior colors.

It also says 0-60 in 6.9s and availability of June.

Yea could be distortion from mag printing, blue looks little ligher than Yukon trucks with same paint code. Good to see another color finally.

Great, thanks for the post and scan! I'll have to check out a copy to see how the blue looks in person (well, sort of in person).

Anyway, the other interesting thing just by reading the scan below is that it appears the Solstice was judged to be the "best roadster" and the runner up is the 06 Miata. Score one for Pontiac -- Pontiac 1, Mazda 0 :)
