Pontiac G8 got redesigned already

72 posts in this topic

Wonderful Pontiac webmasters/webdesigners do it again!!! Look at the pic I got a few minutes a go when I placed the cursor above the G8 (Early 2008) link at pontiac.com:

They don't have a menu for the G8, hence just the default picture. Not really a mistake, per se.

They could have a G8 picture there. Having Bugs bunny instead of the G8 is ridiculous.

Maybe they want to keep us in a bit more suspense. After all, they can build as many Bugs Bunnies as necessary... the G8 will be hamstrung by production limits.

Just bad website coding the GM Canada Pontiac Page shows a G5 as a SV6 sometimes.... :rolleyes:

Well the caption's correct though... Although I do recall G8 having a mouse-over slide.

Point being GM's webmasters are just not up to the job. They had the nerve to say my car has 20hp, and they leave pics of the manual shifter and comments "Available 6-speed manual" in the G6 section when the option was discontinued early last year.

Hey, I am currently in the market for 08 Grand Prix, and I know the Pontiac.com is screwed up. A few days ago, me and my buddy was building my car, and for about $24,925, it had leather, sunroof, fog lights, and ABS included, but the next day, when I build it again, that price never showed with any interior listed, the next day, Leather changed to cloth, talk about inconsistancies. Well, I don't care much about the G8 so....

True I'm sure they can handle building 5 bugs bunnies.

If Grand Prix dies, Impala should die as well. TO HELL.

Oh, I'll be happy about that too. :AH-HA_wink:

It's a done deal anyway, the GP is dead.

Chances are, they will keep the Impala and kill the better version which is Grand Prix since GM and Mr.Luts(Pontiac Hater) only cares about Chevy. Impala probably will go on without GP which is RIDICULOUS.

I work towards two goals, to slow the Zeta platform down, and then eventually watch it die! It seems the 1st goal is coming to fruition, the Zeta is already starting to look old, even before it goes on sale. :smilewide:

Such a sad and pointless pursuit, you want to kill the only platform that can give non-Caddy buyers a real car.

Yet you love that rental queen FWD pile of a car which is already dead. :stupid:

I'll never understand your position on Zeta - it makes no sense at all.

Is it dead? I'm starting to hear rumors to the contrary, and I do love it, it's true. As for me Zeta is Holden and Holden is Zeta, I won't drive anything designed and engineered there, no matter where it's built.

That would be a fine distinction to make if GMNA got off its lazy ass and designed/built something comparable here. As it is they have nothing to offer in that vein. Fact is, America forgot how to build American cars - so what choice are you offering?

Alpha (the only other RWD offering in the pipeline) will also be designed in OZ - you planning to boycott it as well?

I don't know what Holden did to you that makes you dismiss such nice cars out of hand, but it must have been pretty bad for you to ignore the obvious merits of Zeta.

C'mon PCS!

Give me a viable alternative that justifies your irrational position on Zeta!

I'm waiting.

As for me, the Grand Prix GXP will be my last Pontiac I will buy after 22 years of buying Pontiacs. The moment they got into bed with Holden, was it for me. With that said I'm 85% sure I will be getting a Cadillac CTS or CTS-V as my next car in 2010 with a 15% chance that I will be getting the yet to be unveiled new Opel Vectra and having it shipped back to the USA when I return permanently. If Cadillac should go the way of Pontiac, I will drive BMWs until I die.

That's what I will choose to do, as for you, you will have to find your own way. :smilewide:

1. It's a sedan

2. It's a Caddy

3. It costs too much

4. I don't like the styling

5. I like performance cars, not luxury cars

6. Sigma's days are numbered anyway.

If GM had let Chevy, Pontiac, Buick have Sigma from the start, we wouldn't be arguing.

You know as you get older, you're supposed to let your old tired wrinkled body enjoy some comforts in life, such as spending big bucks on a Cadillac luxury sedan. That's what it's all about, you start at Chevy and you end at Caddy as you progress through life. You're clinging on to a way of life that belongs to someone 20 years your junior. Come on Gramps, move along, you're blocking the flow of the GM Corporate model. :AH-HA_wink:

Who's arguing, I thought we were having a discussion? :P

Oh c'mon! I not exactly farting dust at 44!

The Caddy thing has never appealed to me.

If that line of thinking is still the GM model, it needs an update - badly!

The very fact that you're farting at all speaks volumes! :P You know very well that GM still thinks it's customers should progress up through the brands, Yes Virginia, even today, from 1927 to 2007, that business model hasn't changed one iota. :rolleyes:
