The G8 is between the GP and the Bonnie, it'* not just "another midsize" it'* much larger then the G6 is. The Holden is as much of an Import as a Buick. The styling will follow the Solstice, G6 IMO.

It'* just another GM division, one that uses good GM engines. The G8 will be rwd with v6 and v8 options, and good transmissions, Pontiac is for performance in the new redeux. The consensus in and outside GM is that all Ponchos will be RWD within the next model change save maybe the G6.

Remember this image is just ah olden with the pontiac grille treatment. Not anything released or even hinted by GM.

looks like a toned down EVO in my opinion. I like it but i still like the 98 bubble butt style best

Guys, you're missing the boat on the looks comparison. It looks like a Galant, which is one of it'* biggest competitors in Australia.

Similar to the Galant, front end looks more like a Lancer to me though. The Galant is fugly IMO, never liked the new style. Bad design IMO, especially the rear.

I'd rather get a GTO, but I like the rims. That would be sick if they were stock.

This is what first came to mind when I saw this: Very similar lines on both. Then again, I've always thought the TL was styled like the 2000+ Bonnevilles too.
