GM is planning a big show for SEMA: it will be coming to the party with tricked-out versions of the Hummer H3, Chevy HHR and Cobalt, Saturn Sky and Ion, Pontiac G6, and this race-inspired Pontiac Solstice named "Weekend Club Racer". Built by GM Performance Division, this special Solstice features a removable hardtop that drew inspiration from the Viper, an aggressive body kit, and of course, an oversized spoiler. There's not yet any information on what goes on under the hood of this little beast, but stay tuned, as we'll bring you more details when our SEMA coverage begins.

      Wow -- they took the Solstice and made it look like a Pontiac. I knew that car must have some ugly in it somewhere.

      First impression: poseur. Counterbalancing any such cynicism would be proof that it's ready for the 'weekend club racer' task - including significant weight reduction.

      Lose the wing, change the color, and it'd be a beautiful car. Lose the gills in the hood and the portholes in the fender and GFX and it'd look even better. The Soltice is the ugliest thing Pontiac has ever built. Hell, it's even worse than the Aztek. If that kit was produced, and I was in the market for a small two seater, I'd buy it in a heartbeat (even if the motor wasn't upgraded) and never take the top off. I hate convertables, but the top makes the car look awesome.

      Is GM REALLY going to produce the Solstice Weekend Club Racer? Remember, they teased us once before with the Sunfire Speedster in 1994...using, coincidentally, the same color scheme. I believe it was called "Sunfire Mango." http://www.carstyling.ru/car.asp?id=1990

      mini-vipeeer looks awesome. The small dodge convertible that was never built. http://www.dodge.com/dodge_life/past_and_future/concept_cars/razor.html

      Looks like a pirated hot wheel knock off made in China and sold in the dollar store. It is obvious that this is from the same guy who designed the Sunfire or Aztec. One thing the auto industry totally missed the mark is Tuners are like T-Rex, they don't want to be feed with factory made wannabe parts, they want to hunt for the good aftermarket stuff.

      Cool - lets just hope it's not "all show, no go"

      I can't wait to see the Chevy HHR at SEMA. If you guys have pics, can you post them at http://chevyhhr.net ?

      drop-sdead-ugly! when are the designers going to grow up and get over their little "HOT WHEELS" fantasies?
      • 9 Years Ago
      The concept is no "poseur"... with 325hp and 302 lb-ft it is every bit as potent as it looks.

      On second thought, maybe this is the Solstice's Halloween costume. The 'trick' is on us. (Like Charlize Theron dressing up as Elvira.)
