Looks kind like a mix between a GXP and a RX-8 or just a pontiac and some of the newer mazda style!!

John, we have probably have more than one thread on the G8. I was just mentioning that the G8 is on the cover of Autoweek, a periodical I subscribe to. Pontiac'* do not make the cover of Autoweek too often.

But hey it is the lounge so I thought I would offer it up.

Possibly, but this is what people buy. If they continued to buy Bonnevilles, we wouldnt be having this discussion. I see way more BMW'* and Audis then I do newer Bonnies, so...if you can't beat em, style your cars after em.

Exactly. That car is still freakin' hot.

I think it'* unique enough so people won't confuse it with a BMW or Audi. It looks nothing like any Audi I've ever seen. Or even a BMW. It may have some styling cues of European cars, but it looks completely Pontiac to me. I wonder how optioned up the $25,000 G8 will be.
