Mechanical twins, the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky differed only in design. One interesting key difference is that the Solstice was offered—very briefly—in coupe form, something which was clearly considered for the Sky, but that never happened. I like the looks of the Curve, and rather wish it had seen production instead of the Sky—it’s a fun looking little coupe.

CG Says:

Toyota’s automotive mood ring has long since been forgotten, though the designed-in shopping feature was certainly predictive, though the company was mum on many of the specifics, such as how shopping lists become fulfilled orders.

The mood lighting stuff is silly, though it makes for fun auto-show eye candy. And, since 2001, we’ve seen plenty of colored LED lighting systems make it into production cars, though generally the interior, and generally with no claim to represent the emotional well being of the driver.
