76. The Elise does a lot with 190 horsepower...
Edited on Fri Oct-17-08 02:54 PM by ReadTomPaine
it's not the most practical car in the world, but some concessions are worth making. The price has been creeping up a bit too high for my preferences however. Such a simple car should have retained its roughly 40K price. More than that and things start to get a bit dicey, making variants like the Exige and similar less of an easy sell.

The problem with the Solstice/Sky is weight and price. At 2970 pounds, it weights more then some four door sedans and they charge a whopping $6000 premium for the turbo model. I prefer that drivetrain in the Cobalt these days - although both the Solstice and the Sky are just gorgeous to look at. The Kappa rear drive platform holds great promise.
