Launched by the Pontiac section of the General Motors, the car model of Pontiac Solstice has a sporty appeal that was introduced at the International Auto Show of North America in the year of 2004. Starting its journey from the production plant of Wilmington of Delaware, this model was unveiled in the mid-2005 and the year of 2006. The basic external styling of this car was derived from the concept of Solstice in the year of 2002 which was considered as the predecessor of this variation. Though the production process was scheduled to start from the summers of 2005, it got delayed which had resulted in a back push of the production mass in the time span of fourth quarter. Using the platform of GM Kappa which was also adjusted in car models such as the Opel GT, Saturn Sky, Daewoo G2X, the Pontiac Solstice launched its new hard top model in the year of 2009.
This car was one of the finest ranked varieties that got awarded as the North American car of the year along with Best Design of the Year from the association of Automobile Journalists of Canada for the year of 2006. Within the initial 10days of its production launch, the car got to witness an amazing sales record of 7000 orders along with 6000 more before the season of winter. The company had to apologize to customers for their delay in production and increased the manufacturing unit to 10,00 instead of 7000 by the month of March.
