The lads over at Car and Driver have gotten an early peek at the Pontiac Solstice, a roadster build on GM's Kappa platform, the new designation for its small, rear wheel drive vehicles. The Solstice is built on a true sports car chassis with hydroformed frame rails (read: it's stiff) like that of a Corvette, with GM's Ecotec four cylinder good for 170 hp and 170 lb./ft. of torque, and a gearbox from Aisin, the company that produces the S2000's crisp shifter. A sub-$20,000 pricetag was announced earlier this year, and when the Solstice goes on sale late next year as an '06 model, it will have the next generation Miata squarely in its sights.
