In addition to the hundreds of news stories, my source at GM confirmed it about a month ago. Also talked some about the mass confusion within GM itself. They (employees) were as confused and in the dark as we were.

guess giving the GXP badge was to try and boost sales but WTF the 303HP? the bonny should round up 300. I saw a 40th and drooled over it. The last should at least be RWD and a LS2 named the SSEi. We should flood e-mails with this request

I will tell you guys something in my opinion if GM gets rid of the Bonneville nameplate there goes another legacy down the drain. And about these people who buy brand new BMW'* and Mercedes in my opinion have too much damn money. If Lutz is going to be the chief designer of these cars Pontiac will not have a chance to stay above water. For example the GTO'* base price is in the high 30,000 dollar range. Who in the hell is going to pay 45-50,000 dolllars for a Bonneville. Then the luxury with attitude will not fit it then. The car will only be LUXURY without the attitude. I hope and pray that this dumbass Lutz doesn't screw up another legacy.

Thank you somebody agree'* with me about those ugly Aztek'* when I saw the first one I thought who in the hell is designing those cars. In my opinion you might as well put the Grand Prix badge on the new Bonneville'* because they look similar in certain ways.

First GM person to agree with me. You've accomplished alot in a short time. I am hoping to reverse the curse for you.
