GM Gets Good News (For a Change!) as Solstice Outsells Miata

It's only two months worth of sales data but GMers have reason to cheer in the December and January figures that show the Pontiac Solstice outselling the Mazda Miata.

For January, the Solstice showed 1990 deliveries, compared to 1,067 for the Miata, according to figures compiled by Automotive News.

January was the first full month of head-to-head sales. For the partial month of December, the Automotive News Data Center showed 2,746 Solstices sold and 1,007 Miatas. The Solstice is a completely new model, while the Miata, which has been around since 1989, has been redesigned for 2006.
