Pontiac G8 dead?

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=134167

Dismissing this as hearsay for now.

They say it's five years out - so why even write about it?

Additionally, nothing has been said about the cancellation of the Pontiac Solstice (and Saturn Sky) other than GM is not pursuing a next-generation Kappa platform.

Looks like Pontiac may finally be next on the GM Chopping block

+1. The news room must be slow. Most blogs and magazines can't get accurate news 1 year ahead, let alone 5.

That's kinda sad, because the G8 was the bast Pontiac of the Decade.

On another note, if they stop making the Kappa Platform, that's not saying they will kill the Solstice/Sky. Maybe they will move it more upmarket- maybe onto a completely new platform......

(maybe?)

The Pontiac G8 wont die if America keeps buying it. Same goes for all the awesome RWD muscle that is available right now.

Now, if America buys Pontiac G3's.. you know what will happen to the G8!!

the next Impala was gonna be RWD..

if the Camaro does really well.. GM might one day stop making Impalas that are just like Toyota Camrys!!
/buy a Camaro and vote for RWD!!!

..oh and I have a few gay friends who would happily smack anyone who might associate them with that lame G3 heap of cr*p.
