I wondered that as well.
The Solstice was a niche car. A tiny (I's 6'0" tall and couldn't get my knees under the steering column), underpowered, two-door, car isn't going to be high on many people's list to buy. Between that and the company going in the tank, I don't think special products like that were high on their list of priorities.
Someone asked why they don't make a new Firebird. The Camaro and Firebird were phased out because they were essentially the same car. And at the time, both of them were competing with the Corvette, performance-wise. GM wanted to cut something and the Vette wasn't going to get the axe.
They won't make a new Firebird now because it would be another V8 sports car crowding the, economy depleted, V8 sports car market. If you want to see a cool aftermarket Camaro done up like a Firebird, search for "Firebreather". Its awesome.
And I agree that the Firebird was always the better looking of the two. It was like GM took a Camaro and said "what little touches can we add to this to make it even cooler?"
I drive a 2000 Trans Am.
