Had the same code about 4 months ago. i removed the purge solenoid, blew into it and it was stuck in the open position....it is supposed to be closed when the engine is off. Replacement should be available at your local parts store for under $50. There is great how to video from DDMWERKS for the Solstice here:YouTube. Good luck.

I checked the purge valve today (thanks DDM!!!) and it's not bad....any other suggestions? It's still under warranty, so I'm thinking it's going to be a trip to the dealer. What's funny about it is that the car is really alive compared to normal. I'm getting rubber in 1, 2 AND 3!! But I have had the "wanted" backfire a lot more when I get on it and let off.....
