GM Performance Parts Bringing Solstice GXP Coupe To SEMA

Illustration for article titled GM Performance Parts Bringing Solstice GXP Coupe To SEMA

We got a peek at the Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe concept at the New York Auto Show, but with the death of the Kappa platform basically a done deal we didn't think we'd see much more of it. It appears GM Performance Parts still likes the idea of a closed Solstice, though, and they're bringing their version of a GXP Coupe to the SEMA show this week.

GMPP has bumped up the output from the 2.0-liter Ecotec to 290 HP via intake tweaks, a performance cat-back exhaust and a Stage 2 tuning kit. Lowered and firmed-up suspension sits beneath, and the package is finished off with a Hydro Blue racing stripe. We've liked the idea of a Solstice coupe since we saw the first one — it's too bad chances are slim we'll ever see one in showrooms. We'll bring you shots from the SEMA show floor starting later today. [GM via eGMCarTech]

It's the nose that messes it up. Use your left hand and hide the nose and you think hey, is this something Lotus might be cooking up? Remove your hand and you go oh no, it's that mess from Pontiac.

BTW that panel gap comment above made me shoot coffee out of my proboscis, which I am not ashamed to admit looks better than the Pontiac's!
