I had an interesting conversation with my Pontiac dealer friend. His thoughts are that there will be little demand for the Soltice in northern climate states based on past sales of covertables and roadsters here. The real problem, in his view, is the Soltice rear wheel drive and that this alone will keep demand down. He uses as an analagy the rear wheel drive Cadillac CTS and STS, for which customers have returned cars to the dealer after they realized that the rear wheels spin on ice and snow! For the five percentile of us that think the Soltice is a gift from heaven think this is positive engineering for a performance car. But the other 95% doesn't look at the car world the way we do. Time will tell if the Sol sells out like the XLR or gets shelved after a couple of years for collecting dust on show room floors.
