       I just bought a 2009 Solstice just so I could have Wade’s Garage in West Virginia turn it into a Cobra roaster replica, look-a-like.  It’s in mean yellow and now has a white stripe down the entire length of the car.  The rear still looks like the Solstice but the front with the newly added front bumper, side skirt vents and the hood scoop the front end looks just like a Cobra, hence the name Solbra.  Even the chrome head light inserts were painted yellow so the head lights no longer look so tear-dropped and more rounded as a Cobra does.  I purchased the GXP model which comes with a 2.0 liter turbo-charged 4 cylinder engine putting out 260hp.  The only major up date I’m still interested in adding is GM’s stage kit part # 19212670 which will increase the output to 290hp or an additional 30hp gain and still keep it under GM’s normal drive train warranty, because it is a GM factory supplied up grade.  In 2009 they came out with a Solstice Coupe and if GM had not terminated the Pontiac division for 2010 the GXP model coupe would have come standard with the 290hp engine.  It’s a really fun car to drive and it’s really a shame that with the demise of the Pontiac there will be no more Solstices made.  Wade’s personal Solstice was black and now is a Solbra with a white stripe also, but one really big difference than mine is the installation of an LS7 Corvette engine.  The pictures included in this article were sent to me by Wade Linger as my car was being transformed from a standard Solstice into a Solbra.
