Agreed, for the very same reasons. I like the Sky as well, but I prefer curves to sharp angles.palmer said:I like the Solstice. I agree that the overall design is similar to some mid-50s Jags (C type, D type, XKSS) and is, I think, timeless. .. .
I know that for me, if the Sky had come first, I would have given it a look but likely have bought a Miata and never been on a forum about it for 10 months! The Solstice is an example of what I was refering to in another thread as true car building. GM folks got together and said,"OK what kind of car do WE want." and built it. It shows that this is a car for enthusiasts, and later on they said "Ok, what else can we do with it to attract more buyers and voila! the Sky. I don't think it would have had as much success had they said to themselves "What do you think people buying other roadsters want, and how can we make this look cutting edge?" The latter example is what I think the Curve, 1st Sky, Bengal, and Velite are.solsticeman said:I'd even venture that if the Sky were the design that started GM's "Roadster Return", we probably wouldn't be discussing the merits of any GM RWD 2-seat roadster.
I totally agree with this statement. I'd probably have a Miata right now too, possibly an MR2. The Sky is initially stunning to look at, and I think I really like it. However, I am not sure it is the kind of car I would wait years to buy.AeroDave said:I know that for me, if the Sky had come first, I would have given it a look but likely have bought a Miata and never been on a forum about it for 10 months!
I'm not trying to argue with you, and I agree that I feel the Solstice is more refined than a Sky from a stylistic point of view, but IMO I would have switched the Firebird and Camero. So to me...MITCH said:Sky=camaro
If I Wanted A Finished Version Of The Two.
Solstice Hands Down. Mitch
