mceb said:It was really great to hear regular (non die-hard) people discussing the car in their circles. People were amazed but it's beauty and design. Funny the info display in front has no price and almost always people would say ah-huh, it must be 35 or 40 grand. I'd jump into a couple of conversations and tell them it's 20 and they thought I was lying. Other thing they would often think it is concept car.
The Solstice's trunk will be called a "joke" as well. Good thing the Solstice appears to be a very good sports car. It should make me forget all about the trunk.mceb said:MR2 was a joke (I'd say it has no trunk).
What ever is under the Solstice trunk it can't be as bad as MR2 :lol The actor doing the Sky talks came right out in public and said it has small trunk. He put his hand about 3/4 back and said the top takes up this much of the trunk. He did say a "Sunday golf bag" would fit.jimbo said:The Solstice's trunk will be called a "joke" as well.

And I agree the Solstice looks far better in real life, almost mesmerizing.
WHAAAAA.... the MR2, they call that a trunk, I've seen bigger glove boxes :lolmceb said:I hear ya jimbo...glass house we have :lol
The coupe versions of other roadsters did pick up a bunch of trunk space...a coupe version of Solstice some day would be big for daily drivers.
Here's a few of the other roadster trunks I snapped....
Boxster, Crossfire, Mini, MR2
That compartment in the middle is the spare tire. It hinges open and there is a little bit of extra room but it's very oddly shaped and small. The outside has that plastic covering leaving NO depth at all.RODEO said:WHAAAAA.... the MR2, they call that a trunk, I've seen bigger glove boxes :lol
and what it that in the MR2 trunk, looks like a suitcase of sorts?
Don't sweat it Palmer on the summer production, too many people have been saying May for it not to be true (including Lutz himself in the Equire article). Sounds like they kicked it up a notch for the afternoon and evening crowds with the announcer...I got out around noon when it just started getting crowded. Good point on being so close to Wilmington, they could have rolled a real one there :smilepalmer said:I had really hoped for something more, especially since the show was so close to the Wilmington plant. I'm also kinda surprised that we're getting mixed messages from GM this close to production. In Harrisburg we were told May production, June showroom. In Philly, one week later, it's summer production, fall showroom. What gives?
