GM to increase Kappa production

Kappa = Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Opel GT

Dealers = greedy

Customers = angry

GM = increasing Kappa production as much and as fast as it can in order to help take the edge off the situation. Will Solstices (Solsti?) and Skies soon be commonplace and stacking up on dealer lots? Not likely given the limitations of hydroformed body panels (a low volume technique pioneered by GM for these cars).

Any increase in supply will likely be more than accounted for by the feverish demand. I, for one, am hoping that GM doesn't screw up a good thing by building too many of these lovely cars and having to discount them (if only because of the ill will that would result with the customers who felt they had to pay full sticker price - or more - for their Kappa).
