    Wouldn't it be possible for GM to make a new retro GTO or Olds Rallye 350 based on one of their existing rear drive designs? For many years both F body version were built in the same factory and were only lightly differentiated, so why not a low volume run of a classic nameplate to keep some of the old brands alive? They could be sold through selected GM truck dealers. smile image

    I doubt that you will ever see the GTO name/badge return because the 2004-2006 return was met with mixed reviews. I really do not see anything other than the Camaro and Corvette in the way of traditional performance cars coming out of GM from here on out.

    While I would really like to see something like that, Pontiac is dead. GM kept Buick alive because they sell so many of them in China. Traitorous Sons of Dogs.
     

     

    I like 'em all, but I like Pontiacs best.
    Eat it up. Wear it out. Use it all.

    The 2004 GTO wasn't a bad car, it just had underdone styling against it. I know some poeple that have one and they love it.

    That aside it seems incomprehensible that there will never be another GTO. Just think of the nameplate recognition? What a waste. frown image

    I wonder if the Chinese would go for a new version of the Grand National. We could ask, wouldn't you really rather have a Buick? I wonder how that would sound in Chinese? biggrin image
