We're certain the day will come when future enthusiasts refer to the early part of the 21st century as the golden age of simplistic performance. Gas was cheap, technology made quick cars easy to build, and about the only thing that mattered was getting through the next apex faster than the guy behind you. From 250 horsepower econoboxes to 550 horsepower Autobahn assassins, it truly was one of the best times to be a car enthusiast. And, fortunately, low-mileage metal like this exclusive Solstice allows a few lucky car guys to hang onto those days just a little bit longer. Immaculately maintained and rarely driven, this top option roadster mixes spry athleticism with turbocharged power and head turning aesthetics. Want a pristine example of one of the last great Pontiacs ever produced? Check out this sweet GXP!

SOLSTICE IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER

As you can tell from our high-resolution photography, this curvaceous Pontiac is a well-maintained cruiser that, judging by appearance, has spent most its 7,874 miles basking in sunny summertime bliss. Residing in the care of passionate gearheads since new, the car is 100% straight, with no history of accidents or damage of any kind. Glossy Mysterious 2-stage bleeds onto small mirrors, a GXP-spec spoiler and GXP-exclusive fascias. High quality bodywork founds silver-trimmed glass and tasteful chrome door handles under a tight cloth top. And overall, this roadster is a clean, lust-worthy exclusive that looks great idling across the show field OR hammering down the highway!

TWO LITERS AND A TWIN-SCROLL

Tilt the car's sculpted hood and you'll find a world-class GM Ecotec 4-cylinder that utilizes a cast aluminum block, a twin-scroll turbocharger and Spark Ignition Direct Injection to turn 9.2 to 1 compression into 260 horsepower and 260 lb./ft. of torque. That direct injection plays well with continuously variable valve timing. Naturally, a forged crank complements forged connecting rods and low-friction pistons. Sodium-filled exhaust valves, cribbed from hot versions of the Corvette, significantly aid cooling. A cast stainless exhaust manifold optimizes breathing. And as you would expect, this Pontiac's engine bay features a clean, OEM-spec appearance that, save for a GM Performance Parts Air Induction Kit, appears completely unmodified. The highly desirable mill is a thrilling companion for any car guy who has a pulse, and serves as a constant reminder that it doesn't take big displacement to achieve big power and scary speed. And best of all, GM developed a factory engineered Turbo Upgrade Kit that, for under $1,000, will bump the car's output to 290 horsepower and a massive 340 lb./ft. of torque!

A MINI CORVETTE

The story of the Solstice and its unique Kappa underpinnings is an interesting saga. Developed as a cost effective springboard for small, rear wheel drive lifestyle cars, it was essentially a simplified and scaled down version of GM's much lauded Corvette. And, like most Corvettes, this roadster strikes an excellent balance between bone shaking firm and Lexus soft while providing great grip. At the core of the car, a hydroformed chassis rides a fully independent, sport-tuned suspension. At the corners, four vented rotors are clamped by four multi-piston calipers. Turns are provided by power rack-and-pinion steering. Torque flows from a proven 5L40E 5-speed, sourced directly from Cadillac, to a limited-slip differential and snappy, 3.73 gears. Spent gases are mitigated by stainless exhaust. And rolling stock consists of chromed blades that spin 245/45R18 Goodyear Eagle F1s.

JUST THE ESSENTIALS

Inside this Solstice, optional leather buckets fit like a glove, while a leather-clad steering wheel sports convenient thumb toggles for Cruise Control and an optional 7-speaker Monsoon sound system. The instrument panel is a requisite red Pontiac layout that positions a large tachometer and sweeping speedometer next to factory air conditioning. Between the seats, a chrome-trimmed shifter rides a whittled console. All that content is framed in subtle sills, clean floor mats and Sport Metallic Foot Pedals. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a modern car are present and accounted for, including power windows, power door locks, power mirrors and Remote Keyless Entry.

VEHICLE SALE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTATION

* An original Window Sticker
* Factory accessory manuals
* Two sets of keys
* A clean CARFAX report

There's little doubt that this impressive Solstice is one of the nimblest, best-handling and most enjoyable Pontiacs of all time. Encapsulating the renewed spirit of the Pontiac brand in a world-beating roadster, it's the perfect fit for any collector who loves showroom-fresh athleticism. Buy the car and stash it away for a few decades… Or take it out and enjoy every second of one of the best eras of automotive performance!
