Performance car No. 2: Pontiac Solstice Coupe
Roll-out: Now
Price: $26,895
Fuel economy: 19 city, 29 hwy

GM announced in late April that it would kill off Pontiac by the end of next year. At least it's going to go out looking good.

The Pontiac Solstice coupe will probably be the last new Pontiac model to ever hit the market. It's a hard-top version of the convertible Solstice that hit the market in 2005.

Fortunately, GM's designers didn't just drop a top onto the Solstice's cabin. Instead, the Solstice Coupe's flowing roofline gives the car a whole new look. The Coupe does have a removable roof section just over the seats to offer a bit of that convertible feel.

GM will only make about 1,100 of these cars, so expect them to be hard to find. Surprisingly, despite the tight supply, and the car's possible future collectible status, the Solstice Coupe is still selling for well below its sticker price.
