The Pontiac Solstice Coupe Concept '02 is a Concept car produced by Pontiac. It first appears in Gran Turismo Concept, and has appeared in every main game since, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport.

In-game descriptionEdit

"An attractive roadster made by Pontiac that comes from the same bloodline as the Corvette."


GM developed the "Kappa Architecture" as the basis from which it would develop its next generation FR platform, and the "Delta Platform" was this architecture optimised for the compact sports market. The handsome roadster that would make use of this platform was known as the Solstice.

The body structure of the Solstice was a semi-monocoque making it almost like a miniature Corvette, centred around reinforced frame rails and floor pan, which gave it amazing versatility.

The engine was the most powerful of GM's newest Ecotec line of DOHC 4-cylinder engines. It produced 237 BHP from its 2.2L engine and intercooled supercharger. The transmission was the same T-56 6 speed manual used in the Corvette, but was not a transaxle.

Double wisbone suspension supports all four wheels, and variable rate springs are combined with adjustable dampers. 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes provided stopping power. The tyres were a supercar-sized 19 inches in the front, and 20 inches in the rear.

The Solstice was originally only meant to be a concept car. The changes associated with commerciallising it included first changing the engine to a 168 BHP 2.4L Ecotech engine with variable valve timing. Then the T-56 became a 5-speed Aisin manual, and the wheels were reduced to 18 inches at the front and rear in an effort to produce a balance between looks and cost.

Nevertheless, the overall impact is that the Solstice was nearly unchanged fro the concept car.
