If Pontiac has to have some FWD?

Recommended Posts

He is one for all of us to work on while we wait for any new news.

If Pontiac has to have a FWD car or two what can they add from GM's platforms that is much different from the Cobalt, NG Malibu or Aura?

Pontiac needs a car that is more Pontiac than Chevy and will not steal sales from any other GM lines. AWD is off the table in this quest for now to keep it under 30K.

The car has to be different and with a true performance nature [no slap on cladding or FX here]. It also should be directed at conquest sales from Honda, Toyota and Mazda.

Price needs to be under 30K and can start at 18K.

I'm not saying the G6 is a bad car but it is not stealing a lot of sales from the compitition, so what is it going to take.

Keep in mind development fund are not endless.

Oh, and nothing is to be shared with Buick.

I am thinking of a true Civic Fighter and Mazda 6 Fighter.

Lets see what ideas we have!

I'd like to see lighter than the current G6 and with more power. Maybe a rebodied Epsilon SWB? A fun engine would be the Solstice's turbo I4 with a 6 sp manual.

How about a compact 3dr RSX style hot hatch?
