Just the coupe G5 Tempest, would also have a sedan. Rwd, same engines as the current car with the addition of the 2.0L turbo for the GXP model. Could also have that Opel 1.5L turbo for the more economy-minded motorist. 5-speed auto-manual would be standard, with 6-speed manual optional.

This one has potential.

Cool, I now have 3 favorites to vote for. :rolleyes: The last one's interior isn't really my cup of tea, but I am a sucker for the headlights that go over a bit of a hood, like my current Grand Prix does, and I love the overal shape of it. Swoopy designs that I look for in a sporty car. :thumbsup:

Can't wait until the voting begins, for I want to see whose will be a winner. For I am just in for the fun, for I doubt anyone will vote for either of mine that seems to be the worst of the pack here. It seems like the 4th position I finished on the HHR contest can't happen here, I just think I'll be lucky to get any votes on either one of mine.

That looks pretty nice, but I think that the front does not look like a pontiac and you should have tried to make the wheels less flat. Overall though, I really like it!

Thank you. I've never been really good at wheels, hence me not drawing them in the second one. Why do you think the front doesn't look like a Pontiac? Just curious, because I put special attention into putting Pontiac cues into it. I put the badge on the hood (instead of between the grilles) in reference to the mid-60's GTO. The wide grilles themselves are also in imitation of the early second-gen Firebird (the best Pontiac design to me). Originally, I had the headlamps sweep up the fenders, but decided horizontal was more distinct.

Also, as an aside, I did that in about an hour and a half in front of my computer. So, I'm reasonably pleased with it.

Argen, I think the reason why it doesn't look like a Pontiac to me is the grill. I don't know why really but I think the grill needs to be a bit sharper ( point) at the sides of the grill. That's just how I view pontiacs. Still looks nice to me though. :thumbsup:
