I thought this sounded cool:

While there have obviously been no official on-the-record comments regarding the possibility of a 2009 G8 GXP, I don't think anyone doubts the likelihood. Sources inside both GM North America and GM Holden Australia confirm that an uplevel HSV Spec GXP is on the horizon for the second model year of the G8 (as has been the trend with Pontiac in the past, with the introduction of the Solstice, G6, and Torrent). Sources say the powerplant is still up in the air, though it'* possible it will be the 6.2L 425-plus horsepower LS3, or, less likely, the 500-plus horsepower supercharged LSA slated to find its way into the new CTS-V. This would make the G8 GXP the ultimate Bimmer fighter, as it could probably take on the M5 in a head-to-head for roughly half the cost.

Was thinking of making an ES350 my next car... I might just have to change my mind. Now in the running for seriously considering a G8

All I have to say is thank goodness for Australians!

They seem to be the only country that still knows how to make a real car. Meat and potatoes cars that have almost everything you want, for less than the competition. I'm honestly surprised Ford hasn't followed suit and brought over the Falcon.

If they get enough competition they will, once they recover from the $70 million hit they just took paying off Navistar to ditch their contract.
