Pontiac could be a one-car brand:

The Pontiac brand next decade may be trimmed to one nameplate--or it could have as many as three.

Keep the G8, Solstice, and G3. Dump the rest.

Didn't they already announced that the solstice is done after 2010? or at least they canceled development of the "next" model.

Keep the G8 and Solstice. Just make a G8 Sedan (done), Coupe, Vert and Wagon. There ya go. Performance in every shape.

GM even said the G3 won't stay for long. Lutz claimed it's a "Temporary car" whatever the hell that means...

Keep the G8 and G5, bring back the 'bird and kill anything else.

You have then: Pure performance car - bird
G8 in coupe, sedan, wagon, etc. - power and practicality
G5 - low price economy car

Rename the G8, predator...sounds so much better for such a sick looking car.

Keep the G8, redo the GTO, and bring back the 'bird. The Solstice is hideous, the Sky does a way better job.

so you want a G8, GTO and a bird? being a little greedy are we? closest thing I could see would be a G8 and a 2-door G8...call it whatever u want. At this point I would think it's a long-shot.
