What would you like to see from GM

Recommended Posts

Obviously everyone is looking forward to what we KNOW is coming. The 08 CTS, 08 Malibu, production Enclave, etc. But I'm talking about surprises.

Honestly, I'd love to see, at least in concept form, a RWD sedan for Pontiac. Nothing would tickle me more than the hope that GM will give me a BMW 3-series-sized-Pontiac-priced RWD sedan. 8)

an announcement that as the current vehicles with pushrod V6es finish their product cycles, the pushrods will be replaced with OHC engines.

Production sneak peek at the Cadillac SIXTEEN (V16)

It HAS to be a four door hardtop, and all the individual details must

remain intact, even the butterfly hood. Cost is not a problem, even

if it is half a million dollar$ it will be less than half of the only other

sixteen cylinder car on the market.

Also, for a great deal less, like say $100,000 a V12 powered

"Eldorado Brougham" or "Fleetwood Biarritz" that would be

a kind of a modern day '57/'58 Eldorado Erougham.

Basically it would be a way of saying F**K YOU, YOU SUCK!

to all the over priced POS exotic sedans like RR & Bentley!

A Chevy Cobalt with variety, passenger-cargo room, optimal standard/optional equipment, and an Easy-Entry front passenger's seat that even the crummy Cavalier had, yet Cobalt doesn't, thus making an even more difficult task to get to the back seat. There's much more, but that's all I could think of at the moment. Oh yeah, and some Buicks that aren't solely for the AARP crowd-LaCrosse and Lucerne just don't fully speak 'new Buick' to me. And Lucerne doesn't even look like a Buick, it looks like an elegant Chevy.

Solstice fastback coupe, with a high output version of the 2.4L. Call it a Solstice GT maybe? No Solstices with football helmets please.

G6 with AWD.

Almost everything I want to see from GM already is out or will be out in the next few years.

Camaro

Cobalt SS Turbocharged Coupe

Saturn SKY RedLine

GMC Acadia

Zeta Impala

Zeta Pontiac sedan

NG GTO

NG CTS

I guess the only thing I now long for is an AWD performance coupe, but who knows what they've got in the pipeline with Zeta...

high mileage cars are the future. as GM is finally jumping into the RWD party, they also need to cover small cars that have great mileage. a civic competitor with 30 mpg city like empowah stated is a great necessity......if they can get an engine that performs like that into a great platform that matches the civic's great engineering.....and then make a small convertible off of that platform, they'll cover yet another massive part of the market looking for standard commuter cars. cobalt is good, but not enough, and it is too derivative and plain in its style, needs more style.

There's lots of stuff I'd like to see, but what I'd really like to see is that everything GM shows is world-class.
