    i dont understand it really. its competition for the gto. slightly less hp, 4 doors, but same msrp.

    it looks nice, just doesnt make sense to me. why not just make a 4 door gto

    GTO = sports car.

    G8 = luxury car.


    Its the same reason why there's a caddy with a vette engine and a vette.

    In order to gain luxury status, you don't cheapen the name of your sports car and you don't alienate your luxury snobs by associating their car with that of an "econo sports car".

    Yea.... what are you kids talking about? The GTO is done.


    and the G8 looks like a confused audi with an evo front end and nissan wheels and tails from 2003.

    My fiance has a g6, I really like it. It has a 3.5 v6, the salesman said it would get 32 mpg on the highway. I wouldn't believe it, so she bought it, and it actually does. Big and comferatable.
