It will be good if this leads to more RWD platforms being built in North America.

It'd be great if they moved it to Oshawa after a couple years.
It'd be equally as great if they changed the name back to Grand Prix.

If GM keeps it up I'm gonna want all the rear wheel drive cars.

sorry to say this guys...but i'm hoping they keep the G8 production in Australia!

I think sourcing this car from Holden is a great way to ensure it keeps its sporty character & never becomes just a rebadged impala!
