The back window opens to allow access to the trunk. While this is a heavy handed solution, it really would make the Solstice a much more practical car. In fact, replacing the ragtop and rear deck with this removable hardtop would turn the Solstice into a very practical daily driver and one-owner car for those who don't like convertibles. Of course, those removable hard tops are a lot louder than a steel top with insulation and sound deadening.dealernut said:ummmm.... how would you get in the back?
:agree:jimbo said:Nice thinking as this would add tons of storage and be the coupe that many are asking for. Unfortuntely, that top destroys the look of the car as it runs completely against the thematic curves and looks abominable as a result.
I was thinking the same thing!!!jimbo said:Look ma! it's a Solstice Z3 Coupe.
I don't know, I think it looks a heck of a lot better than the afore mentioned Z3 Coupe. Now that thing was STEEEEE-RAAAAANGE. :yesnod:Unfortuntely, that top destroys the look of the car as it runs completely against the thematic curves and looks abominable as a result.
Good attempt. Bad execution.
I thought the Solstice and the Nomad were both conceived to be built on Kappa?IgotSol said:Why would you want that. If you want a roadster buy a Solstice, if you want a wagon, create a whole new car and not force a design that clearly does not work on the Sol.
They were. The Nomad was on a stretched platform that is said not to be production feasible. It's still a great idea, but I don't think GM understands just how badly people want RWD vehicles.pwaiting said:I thought the Solstice and the Nomad were both conceived to be built on Kappa?
