Autotrader Find: 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe

While most valuable Pontiac models hail from the muscle car era, this 2009 Solstice is an exception. This is an ultra-rare Pontiac from the brand’s last year of production — and you’re unlikely to see another one like it.

This particular Solstice is a coupe, unlike the vast majority of other Solstice models, which are convertibles. That’s a big deal because Pontiac made only 1,266 Solstice models in the coupe body style before going away, and this is one of those rare 1,266. By comparison, Pontiac built around 64,000 Solstice convertible models.

And not only is this Solstice one of the rare coupe models, but it also features a great engine: the Solstice GXP, which uses a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 260 horsepower. That’s a big step up from the standard 2.4-liter engine, which made only 177 hp. The only drawback is that this one is an automatic, but that will likely be a plus for drivers with long or traffic-filled commutes.

So just how much does it cost to own the rarest Pontiac of the modern era? This 2009 Solstice GXP Coupe is offered by Heritage Buick GMC in Rockwall, Texas with just 4,100 miles on it for $41,900. That’s big money, but this car will likely remain a collectible as the Solstice continues aging. Find a Pontiac Solstice for sale

  1. Two demerits: automatic transmission, and boring colour. This should have been bought with a stick shift in red, orange, yellow or blue.

  2. That dealer is smoking something if he’s charging $42,000 for a 10 year old Pontiac just because it has 4100 miles on it don’t care if it’s a GXP or it’s a coupe it’s not worth it
