Here's the Solstice part (170HP should be 177)

Solstice: A whole new type of vehicle for Pontiac, and the one likely to carry the torch as the new face of the Pontiac, the two-seat Solstice roadster arrives in late summer as a 2006 model.

''We think it'll be a phenomenal product,'' Maraone said. ''It embodies what Pontiac is all about.''

Stylish with a low, wide stance, the Solstice closely resembles the concept version that first appeared at the 2002 North American International Auto Show. It's a rear-wheel-drive car with a 170-horsepower four-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual transmission. It's expected to cost less than $20,000.

It's the Solstice's design that stands out. It's a bit rounder than a BMW Z4, and a bit more aggressive than a Mazda Miata. It carries Pontiac's signature twin-port grille.

Or, as Lutz said, ''You have to go back to 'The Rockford Files' to find a Pontiac that looked this good.'' Seventies TV detective Jim Rockford drove a gold Pontiac Firebird.
