I spent a lot of time reading about sports cars in this category. Virtually all of the magazine reviews put the Miata over the Solstice. I knew why as soon as I drove the GT model Miata. Since Pontiac apparently was timid about producing the Solstice, and since I refuse to stand in long lines just to pay sticker (or above) my decision to buy the Miata GT was even easier. OK, I'd really like a little more power...maybe a turbocharger? That's the only suggestion I'd make to Mazda.
Standard features like a/c, P/S, P/W and even ABS brakes that are OPTIONS on the Solstice.
Maybe a turbocharger, a V-6, or a 20- 25% power boost from more displacement?
