Default Missing my 95 =(

Everytime I come home I see the 95 sitting there I tell my wife man that is one sexy car(she hates it, but she says it looks like a shark from the front). Anyways Tell you the truth the 95 to me has a better body style than the GXP. If both vehicles were brand new(GXP and 95) I would pick the 95 over the GXP easily. I have had more compliments with the 95 than my GXP, I even had people offering to buy it a couple of years ago.

Wow, I think the GXP is the best, cleanest, and sharpest body style! I look at my 94 everyday and I still love it, but I like my 03'* styling better. The pre-production GXP is the BEST IMO, they made small changes to the production GXP that I didn't love, but I still think the GXP is gorgeous.

I saw the Pre-production too and I have to agree with you, especially the rims i liked the pre-production ones better. And it looked like it was a bit lower too, or maybe 19'* instead? Didn't it have drilled rotors too?

IDK about rotors, but the front bumper looked better. It didn't have a chiseled edge below the headlights like they do now, as do the SEs. I'll have to find some of my favorite pics...

Sol took pics of the 2003 Detroit Auto Show, of course they're not active anymore. :( Still searching online, but every place that has galleries from the show has every car but the GXP.

Pics of concept GXP from Auto show... If it really would have looked like this, I'd have me one of em!

The Pontiac Bonneville GXP, which premiered at the 2002 Chicago Auto Show in February with a blown 3.8. It underwent reconstructive surgery and added a couple of cylinders before showing up at the 2002 SEMA show in Vegas and knocking the lights out. The cavernous grille will unfortunately be toned down for the 2004 version, but the V8 will remain. The aggressive rake and stance will be retained as well, and 18-inch versions of the five-spoke rims will be mated to 235/50 performance tires rated to 168 mph.


One thing which caught our eye was the this sharp-looking dual stainless steel exhaust from Corsa Performance. Will it make it on the real thing? Time will tell.


Large 19-inch wheels and tires will be replaced by more tarmac-friendly 17- or 18-inch hoops. The aftermarket SSBC brake pieces will also go by the wayside for some OEM assemblies.
