Before Pontiac went out of business in 2010, it was making a couple cool cars. There was the Commodore-based, V-8-powered G8 GXP, and this, the Solstice GXP coupe. Sporting a turbocharged engine, a targa top, and a manual transmission, it had the makings of a truly fun two-seat sports car. Sadly, it was built for just a single year in extremely low numbers. This 2009 model has just 34 miles on the clock, and it's never been titled. You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

According to , this Solstice GXP was purchased by the seller, a dealership in New Jersey, back when it was new. Instead of selling it to a customer, it held onto the car and kept it in its showroom for a decade, never registering or driving it. The car looks immaculate inside and out, with no signs of wear or other use. It's as if it just rolled off the factory in 2009.

The GXP Coupe is the rarest and most desirable version of the Solstice, sporting a removable targa roof in place of the convertible top, a 260-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four, a five-speed manual transmission, and an 8000-RPM redline. Produced for just a single model year, only 1277 examples were built.

The car is currently with a current high bid of $5569 and seven days remaining. GXP Coupes with some miles on them command a heavy premium over normal Solstices, so we can only imagine how much this one will go for. But if you want to relive the last days of Pontiac's existence, this is the car to do it in.
