Me too! :agree If they spice the NC up, I might have a dilemma on my hands, but if it looks like that boring straight line soap bar thing, forget it! Hard to tell from this camo shot. Thanks inspector16 for posting it, I hadn't seen it yet.jimbo said:I am anxious to see the NC Miata. If I love the looks of the NC then I'll have something else to get excited about besides the Sostice.
From what I've seen though, it looks to be too Japanese styled too me. Not to insult the styling of Japanese cars, but they have distictive features these days and not what I would call classic, proportioned or subtle at all.
By Contrast, when I look at the Solstice I think "Italian design". The Sky doesn't do that for me. I hope the Miata does, but I'm not holding my breath. Then again, if the Miata is ugly to me, then my choice will be easy. Solstice! :yesnod
Yeah, I agree. I hope it's not "too" japanese, as jimbo mentioned. Although that could be cool in its own way, I definitely would prefer something a bit more romantic in its execution. The car is supposed to be shown at the Geneva Motor Show, which I believe is in March. So I guess we'll have to wait til March to decide if it's a winner (at least styling wise).AeroDave said:Me too! :agree If they spice the NC up, I might have a dilemma on my hands, but if it looks like that boring straight line soap bar thing, forget it!

Hmmm yeah, you're right. They've been very tight liped so far. Problem is a week before announcement all the press people will have it, and knowing the press someone will drop the ball and leak it out.Fformula88 said:This isn't General Motors were talking about! :lol
True, but I meant something more then 4% increase I am glad they were able to get closer to 180 with the engine though. I really can't wait to see what some basic bolt ons like intake, exhaust, high flow cat can do for this car. I'm betting it could easily make it close to 190HP. That is of course unless that's how they got 177 HP was by putting those types of upgrades on the car already. It is Pontiac, they are supposed to be the performance brand, right?solsticeman said:What do you mean? I thought they upped the horsepower (or hinted at C&G or GMI or something) that the HP is now 177 instead of 170.
That's another hint. not much, but it's something.
hehehe yeah.solsticeman said:MAN, you want the moon with a string around it, don'tcha? :jester
The car's not even available yet - ASSUMING there is some sort of GXP, GM would be dumb to say anything about it if they have doubts about potential "marketing weaknesses" on the base. You don't want a bunch of people "waiting" for the next version when you don't even have the current version for sale...
