    The Solstice coupe came out about the same time as Pontiac was cancelled, so they stopped production and whatever was in the pipeline was it. Great cars - I have mine set up with a few mods to both chassis and engine (now sitting at 375 bhp and 375 Tq, which is pretty good from a 2 liter). Gets 30+ mpg and also can get into the 12s in a 1/4.

    That MGA race car has an engine I created - 1950 cc instead of 1588 and around 175 bhp instead of 108. Fun race car - have had it since 1970.

    The BMW Z4M is going to be the last ever naturally aspirated M car. 340 bhp @8,000 rpm is just so much fun even if you only use it all once in awhile. The six speed is excellent and the trunk will take at least 4 cases of wine, unlike the Solstice!

    Too many hobbies, too little time.

    7800 rpm redline ;) mines 7900 ;) no S54b32 left the factory with an 8k redline, no matter what we owners say ;)

    That engine though... pure glory to drive one. One day I hope to drive a Weissman so I can say I’ve driven all 3 cars with that motor.

    You are correct - the fuel cut starts at 7900. I had thought that the CSL might be 8K but it is also 7900.

    I have a bit more than N. American output but not quite European, due to exhaust revisions on mine that also sound really, really nice. Pretty sure the neigbours do not welcome this.....

    I sat a light last summer listening to the taunting of a car load of punk kids in a lowered Honda Civic held together by stickers and fitted with a loud pipe.

    I enjoyed leaving them far behind when the light turned green, I can only imaging the razzing the owner took from his buddies for the next three days... Hey mikey... you got beat by a fat scooter driven by an old dude with a funny watch!
