GM has already confirmed that it has no plans to offer a V6 or all-wheel-drive in the new Pontiac Solstice Coupe. Power comes from a base 2.4L Ecotec 4-cylinder engine producing 173hp and a GXP version powered by a 2.0L turbocharged Ecotec that produces 260hp.

However, MotorTrend is claiming that the turbo Ecotec is capable of more, 40 more horses that is. The trendy guys are saying that the Solstice GXP coupe could be advertised at 300-hp when it arrives in showrooms early next year in order to show up the upcoming rival, 2010 Nissan 370Z, which Pontiac considers as a competitor.

Still that’s still 30 horses shy of the 370Z which will be powered by Infiniti G37’s 3.7 liter V6.

Hey GM, we’d also like to see a Saturn Sky coupe as well.

    From what I've read about the Saturn/Soltice it difficult enough to get 260hp to hookup to the rear tire much less 300!
    How about making a good car even better by improving on the some of the interior sore spots rather than throwing more HP at the problem?
