Equal to the Solstice just different.
Solstice more clean / pure, Sky more "styled".

Latest car mag review had the SKY outperforming the Solstice and gasp, the Miata. The styling differences in the SKY allowed for rear suspension tweaks, more travel, and a bigger, albiet still mostly useless, trunk. The SKY was 2/10 of a second slower in the sprint from 0 to 60 but pulled .91g on the skid pad and outran the Miata through the slalom.

Saw my first SKY over the weekend also and my first thoughts were identical to yours, yawn in pictures. The one I saw was on the road and was black, like the front end in particular much better. I appreciate the Solstice's hommage to the original Corvette, but I think the SKY is styled better. GM is already trying to increase capacity on the Solstice by 15K units and the SKY by 10K units, can't build either fast enough.
