The Pontiac Solstice has plenty of performance potential, and the SD-290 concept at SEMA uses a soon-to-be launched Stage II aftermarket kit for extra power and pizazz. 290 horsepower and 310 ft-lbs. are only part of the story, as light weight materials, a deleted passenger compartment and no windows help propel the SD 290 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds. We interviewed GM Marketing Product Manager Jim Hunter to get you details, and you can view it by clicking play above.

      Stage II adds only 10% HP? What's Stage I do?

      How light is it? If it's under 2500 pounds, with that much torque and horse, that would make it a serious sports car.

      I like it, and if the production vehicle looked like it, I would definitely consider buying one.
