The Pontiac G8 returns???

Post  A-rod on Wed Feb 24, 2010 5:28 pm

At least GM had the good sense to bring the G8 back to the states for 2011, in one form or another:



Although GM has only announced that they will be building the Chevy Caprice (rebadge G8) for police fleets, I think it's a safe bet the public will be able to get them too.

If so, I might just hold off buying my new car until then.

EDIT: Actually, I just found out it's technically not a rebadged G8 that'll be making it stateside. It's the extended-wheelbase Zeta platform, like those from Saudi Arabia, where the Caprice is currently being sold.

Too bad you won't get the short-wheelbase Holden Commodore anymore - I saw a pretty neat comparison test between the Charger R/T and the G8 GT. Unsurprisingly, the G8 humiliated the Charger in every single discipline, with great brakes, good price and sporty setup - would be cool if we had the Commodore regularly sold in Europe as well (only the UK has one, the VXR8), but it'd likely not meet most European's expectations and/or reduce Opel's sales by creating a competitor which is bigger and cheaper than the Insignia. Then again, GM isn't doing anything else with the Chevrolet Cruze to the European compact market.
