The Pontiac Solstice is a high point of innovative design. All the planning, engineering and refining culminates in an inspired roadster, delivering what may very well be the perfect open-air driving experience. Fluid lines wrap around the GM global RWD compact performance architecture with unibody construction, and set the stage for crisp response and exhilarating performance delivered by the 177 horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder ECOTEC DOHC VVT engine. The AISIN 5-speed short throw manual transmission allows for quick gear changes. Four-wheel vented disc brakes slow you down before you accelerate out of the corners while the ergonomic contoured driver's seat holds you firmly in place.
