The orange is very nice, but I'd still rather have that car in the gray which I think is the best color for it. But it's such a good looking car that color doesn't really make a difference. I was a bit worried about the hood scoops back when I saw the first pictures, but they look a lot better than I thought they would. I really hope this car is the one to truly revive my favorite marque, and I think it will be.

I have decided I do like the scoops now that I have seen them on the real car but I do with they were or had ligitimate function.

This car will be a hit!! I can't wait to see what follows with the new Pontiac line.

Are the new wheels 18 or 19 inch on the oange/red GT?

Also check out the ad in the new Automobile of the new G8. It is title the Return of the Great One.

Looks pretty good in these pics, thanks for posting. I like the blue. Those wheels look a bit plain, I prefer the full 5-spokers in the "Return of the Great One" ad.

What is the name of that shade of orange?

Ignition Orange Metallic.

Is that a CTS coupe next to the blue one?

Wouldn't that be something? I wish it was because that would be the top story instead! Nope, its an XLR.

Not a big fan of the orange or blue (purple to my eyes). Prefer it in black or gray. Definitely prefer the flat spoiler to the wing.

I'm torn... I want a gray one with the spoiler on the orange one would work very well as my daily driver, but I don't want to get rid of my car...

BTW, isn't that gray the Granite Gray Metallic?

Blah...

I think it looks best in grey but those hood scoops and the bland design don't go well together, IMO. Looks like it's trying too hard.

I agree and I think the g8 would look nice with your gto's rims.

I was just about to say... im wondering if the G8 wheels will fit on the GTO's. If they come out with some other designs i might consider switching.

True, come to think of it I don't think I've ever seen the back of an XLR before now.

I am going to be honest here. I don't like the Pontiacification of this car. The front end doesn't match well with the rest of the lines. It has a pinched in look. Pontiac deserves better, and so does Holden in this case. I call it like I see it.

Blah X 100...

I'll even go as far as to say that the latest GTO looked better than this.

The orange KILLS whatever sophistication the design had in the first place and those wheels are atrocious. I kept thinking I'd seen them before and then I remembered. The Ion has a similar design with the lego block center cap.

The G8, so far, seems to be about as exciting as shredded wheat. I certainly hope I'm in the minority because I want the car and Pontiac to succeed. The dynamics will no doubt be there, but the look seems to be back in the 90's
