+1 on an used G8 ST. Let the value fall $10k-$15k (12-24 months) and snap one up.

Hence why I am betting on a used one. Much like I did with the GTO.

I hate to say it, but I was thinking the exact same thing. Still kinda neat though. Just think, in 20 years from now we will all be reminiscing about the last great musclecar wars between Ford, Dodge, Chevy and Pontiac while we wait for our "car" to recharge.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I love it! Of course there are already skeptics on that site putting it down for stupid reasons. One reviewer even says that "GM should give up and sell themselves off to Toyota". God, that would be a nightmare that I'd never want to see in my lifetime.
