it doesnt stand for anything, it signifies a Supercharger Bonneville.
Pontiac swears up and down it means nothing at all.
Do a search on it.

It officialy stands for ........

Nothing!! The "i" suggests "forced induction", aka "supercharged", but the staff got the word directly from Pontiac. The letters don't have any official meaning.

please dont confuse the orignal poster.....they mean nothing

the only trim that Pontiac clearly spells out is the SLE which stands for Sport Luxury edition
