Based upon a new General Motors Kappa architecture that will spawn several fun-to-drive small cars around the world in coming years, the
gorgeous 2006 Pontiac Solstice roadster is not only intended to become an icon for GM's performance division but also is gunning for the
best-selling roadster on the globe, the Mazda Miata.
In 1958, Bill Mitchell, GM's design chief said, "what we want is a cross between a Ferrari and a Rolls". In 1963, the Buick Riviera was launched as GM's new personal luxury car. The Buick Riviera was not a muscle car, per se, but it had a tremendous impact of the American automotive scene. The Riviera represented one of the most successful American attempts at capturing European styling and performance in a large automobile. Positioned at the top of Buick's coupe line up, the Riviera always represented cutting edge styling and performance and deserves a place in American automotive history.
The '71 Buick Riviera featured one of the greatest styling exercises in automotive history. Dubbed "the boat tail", the look was supposed to draw upon stylish cars of the 1930's, but putting the design on a 218-inch length, 122-inch wheelbase, 4,247 lb car resulted in a look that buyers either loved or hated. Because GM had to meet stricter emission standards, the 455 cu. in. engine was detuned down to 315 hp and the top speed dropped to 120 mph. A similar model of this car was used in the Clint Eastwood film "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot".
