I just got back from the NY Auto Show and WOW!!! It really does look better in person. I'll post pics in this thread in a minute.

Overall size is similiar to all other roadsters (Z4, TT, S2000, etc.) but probably not as big as 350-Z. Was great to hear people walking up and saying wow what a great car...what is it...then guessing the price was 30K :smile Everyone seemed to like the lines.

The direct front angle which was giving me a little trouble looks better in person too. It's amazing when you walk around and see all the other roadsters at 33k and up and then the Solstice chimes in at 20k!

Reps were not much help...probably just hired hands delivering a speech. They are still annoucing Fall 05 as ETA. They call the car "pre-production" version and say there still may be some tweaks to it.

Outside walking around west side of Manhattan saw several Solstice posters on walls "now on display at NY Auto show".

MSN article :-(

My msn.com homepage today has a link to the NY Auto Show.

All I can say is I'm thankful that mceb posted pictures he took!

No thumbnails or even a mention of the Solstice in the article...

Unless I missed something or there are two auto shows going?

What Is Speed Vison...is That A Tv Show?
Speedvision is the old name for what is now called The Speed Channel, Speed Channel, or simply "Speed." The name changed when they were bought out by Fox. Unfortunately, the programming changed quite a bit as well. Used to cover aviation and boating as well as cars. Used to be more motorcycling shows as well.

Two tailpipes, is it really that hard??
It would have been nice if they kept the center exit exhaust they had on the 2002 prototype, especially with a single outlet exhaust. I bet dual pipes show up on the S/C motor down the road.

I've read that th esolstice will only come in one colour. Is that true?
From what I read it is the European grey.
No...that's crazy. The pre-production model is only in gray but it will certainly be offered in other colors (yet to be released).
