Default Does a pic or rendering of the G8 exist?

With all of the references to the G8 I can't really find any specific info on the car. Is this just a concept car and are there any pictures or renderings of this vehicle? I've done some searching on the net as well as this site have had no luck.

I'm probably missing something, but I see no refernce to Pontiac G8, only the Buick. I saw the same pic when I searched the net. Thanks.

first spy picture of GM’* new Zeta rear-wheel drive platform destined for the new Buick Invicta (think Park Ave replacement), Buick Velite convertible, Pontiac GTO, Pontiac G8 (Bonneville/GP replacement), Chevy coupe (Chevelle?) and almost all of Holden’* next generation of cars. Holden is GM’* Australian brand that has performed most of the engineering of this platform. The 5.3-liter and 6.0-liter V-8s (no more 5.7s guys) will nestle quite nicely under the hood and be GM’* best chance at catching the 300/Magnum/Charger crowd.
