They've already said there are issues with the top that they are working through. Some people were going off on rants about GM's quality based on seeing those pics of pre-production models. That's not how the final product is going to be released and they don't want it getting a bad reputation based on inaccurate assumptions. I loved the pics and like seeing new tidbits now and then, but I went in knowing that I'm seeing test subjects, not the finished product.nyca said:were they upset about our comments about the fit on the car? they are going to turn this plant into area 51 to try and bury these issues, better they should address them directly.
i'm bummed out by the see and think cops but, i suppose they have reasons that make sense. of course i already copied the photos to my solstice(s) folder minus the fenced photos.nyca said:I am beginning to wonder now whether GM is going to be able to pull this car off successfully. look at the news today of layoffs, the price cutting, the inability to get these problems fixed and launch production on the Solstice - everyday that goes by, there is a higher odds of this car not "making it".

:agree: the red car looked great in those pics from the side. But my concern is with the view from the front. In the color-morphed pics, I just thought the front end looked a bit cluttered or something with the headlights, foglights, and grill inserts. I'm not sure if it was the size or arrangement of everything, but something just stuck out a bit more on the more colorful paintjobs. It all seemed to blend together more in the Sly color and I liked it better that way.Fortyninenorth said:If nothing else the pictures showed just how great the car looks in RED.
:agree:mikefred1952 said:You hammered this one. A near perfect product is what GM wants to put out. Not some rushed, fit plagued, product that the press can bash. I'm glad our posts are read frequently. We have had some great input so far. Just hope, as stated before, that no one got into any real trouble. We are just too starved for current pics and information! Feel our pain!
That was a UAW function, if I recall, so it may have been the result of some Labor-Management give & take, but you could be right about the discipline thing.Darkhamr said:I would think it was a lower level request to avoid discipline. Hell they already had an official open house where people could sit in the car and take pics, so what would be the difference?
