Solstice commands thousands over sticker

5 posts in this topic

Automotive News / September 19, 2005 Well, that didn't take long. With demand far outstripping supply, the Pontiac Solstice, which went on sale in early August, typically fetches about $5,000 over sticker price on eBay, AutoTrader.com and at dealerships. That makes the new roadster the hottest Pontiac in years. One eBay bidder dropped $32,900 for one of the low-slung roadsters, which start at $19,995 and rise to $24,700 fully loaded. Some of the first 1,000 cars, which were sold to buyers through a promotion on the hit TV show "The Apprentice," are bringing an even bigger premium. One eBayer paid $10,000 for the right to buy car number 664. GM says it will build about 7,000 Solstices this year. Pontiac dealers have ordered 13,000 Solstices; many won't get more than one until next year.

Just goes to show you... GM was far too modest with their initial projections. Maybe they were intentionally modest.

Now GM is probably not seeing any of that extra money ? Why is annual production so low, I seem to remember a much higher number
