Produced for the 2006 through 2010 model years, the Pontiac Solstice was a short-lived two-door sports car offered as a sort of “last hurrah” for the Pontiac brand prior to its discontinuation in April of 2009. Now, this rare, low-mileage 2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe is up for sale in a new online auction listing.
Outside, the Pontiac Solstice production model looks a good deal like the Solstice concept presented in 2002, which isn’t all too common a practice these days. This particular example is draped in Mysterious Black paint, complemented by 18-inch chrome wheels. Up top is a removable targa roof section.
The interior continues the exterior color theme with Ebony leather upholstery, which is accented with splashes of red in the foot wells, plus polished trim bits for the gauges, vents, and shifter surround. This particular Pontiac Solstice is also equipped with a Monsoon audio system comprised of seven speakers
Making the go is a 2.4L engine, rated at 177 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. Output drives the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission.
This particular 2009 Pontiac Solstice is a somewhat rare find. Although General Motors built 65,724 units of the Solstice, just 1,266 Solstice Coupes were produced. What’s more, this model is one of just 388 examples painted in Mysterious Black, per the listing description, which cites information pulled from solsticeforum.com. What’s more, this particular example is a one-owner car with a mere 5,700 miles on the clock, plus a clean Carfax history with no accidents reported.
All told, this vehicle looks to be in pretty good condition, as evidenced by the pictures. There are a few imperfections, like small scrapes to the bottom of the front bumper and a few rock chips, but overall, it looks very well kept.
As of this writing, the highest bid of 15 placed is set at $12,000, with five days left in the auction. This 2009 Pontiac Solstice is located in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
