True. The G8/Bonneville (they are still considering reviving the name!) will be released evnetually. Right now the timeline is looking somewhat like this: 2008, GP is dead. Plant retooled for 1st half of Zeta production. Chevrolet Camaro and Impala are the first marks to be produced in 2009 as 2010 models. 2009: Final W-body rolls off the line, a Buick LaCrosse. Plant retooled for 2nd half of Zeta production. Included are the Pontiac GTO, G8/Bonneville and Buick replacement (Lucerne?) in 2010 as 2011 models.
