Many of you remember shots of this hardtop Pontiac Solstice that features a hatchback-type rear end. The hardtop is a product developed by EDAG that's been in development for some time, but word is out that the EDAG Sportwagon hardtop, as it's now officially called, will be available in January of 2007 for $2,499 plus taxes and shipping. Saturn Sky owners (and Opel GT owners, for that matter) will have to wait until Spring if they want to close the lid on their convertibles.

The Sportwagon hardtop weighs about 115 lbs., although you'll be removing the production lid at the same time, which means you'll drop 42 lbs. for a net gain of 73 lbs. More weight can be saved by permanently removing the soft top, as well. However, that requires a professional and who wants to permantly remove their convertible's soft top anyway?

EDAG makes a big point in its press release about the OEM quality of all the materials used to construct the Sportwagon hardtop. We actually got to see a preproduction prototype at last year's NAIAS and were impressed with the cap's fit and finish, and the fact that it does give Solstice owners more enclosed storage space. We'll leave the look of EDAG's hardtop up to you. In our eyes the production side windows make the top look a little awkward where it meets the windshield at the top of the A-pillar.

Thank for the tip, Josh!

      Not a great design at all, its functional but doesn't flow with the lines at all. The developer should take a note from Reverie's design. It's not perfect either, but IMO it's much better. The Solstice still hasn't grown on me at all though, just seems like a goofy design for some reason. I like the Sky (even though its severely underpowered) but the Solstice really just seems odd to me.

      This meets the Aztek as one of the ugliest cars of all-time. A complete styling disaster of lines and shapes that do not messh or meet. No class, no flow, nothing sexy, nothing easy to look at, just constant vomitting of dinner and wondering how and why GM can continue to waste money. LOOK AT THE DAMN TT AND COPY IT if you want to do something halfway decent. I am so sick of these insulting cars being made for us Americans. It's one slap in the face after another

      Ummm No. I liked the solstice coupe concept, even the chevy nomad concept, but not this hodgepodge. Maybe the europeans will appreciate it.

      Mike #10 -

      YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE NOTE THAT I DIDN'T SAY "PONTIAC" I SAID "THESE GUYS".

      I realize that reading a message before responding to it may be too much to ask of you, so, I ask that you simply not post messages without having any clue what you're talking about in the future.

      It's double-tarded that you're trying to accuse me of not reading before posting. I mean really, get a clue.
