1997 Solstice, what?
« on: March 25, 2015, 12:48:22 PM »
Kind of chuckled when I saw this. Wonder if this was a mistake or the dealer did it on purpose to get eye balls?

Good to see the cars holding value like that, it's 18 years old after all.   :D

I don't know guys...

I usually prefer a little newer car which is why I bought the then new 2008 Solstice over a used Vette when I did. Might have to trade it in though for one of these 2015 Solstice GPXs.  Seriously, a GPX!!!

A GXP with only "217 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque"  That must be the Romanian drag racing version, they have made it slower for you Kelu.

I think they DID say it was only available for the first year in Europe so you may well be correct.   :agree:

You might be close ... made by romanians but not for me... they arrest people for fake auction frauds regularly ... if the english is not good I bet is something from Europe.
The trick is simple, usual cars (normally fast selling brands and models) are put for auction with data stolen from other sites and when a potential buyer appears a nice message is sent saying that the seller is away (military or some other job which requires traveling) saying that they will ship the car directly to the buyers address but they need to pay the shipping company and a small amount is asked 500-2000. Eventually they can used fake escrow sites for this transaction.

Anyone wanna try this and prove my theory?

Let's use DBGs money.

I really don't like the front wheel drive aspect of the 2015 GXP.

I guess I'll have to get its cousin, the F Type.



If that isn't the best looking new car on the current market, I don't know what it. Droooooooooolllll


And a sky version!
