Alot of people have been making mountains out of a factual molehill. Holden is insisting the G8 RWD is coming back to America. 3 GM sources as well. But not as a Pontiac, it will be rebadged a Chevy and as yet doesn't have a name.

http://www.torquenews.com/108/pontia...ack-life-chevy

I wouldn't be surprised if GM didn't return it as a Caprice because I also read an article quoting Holden as saying it would be a prime vehicle to fill a void here in Law Enforcement offerings.

Pontiac is DEAD. The Division was stripped and destroyed paper wise. GM is far from out of the woods and I can't see it bearing the cost of reorganization. They pulled a trigger that doesn't have a Magic comeback clause.

I seriously think it will be called Lumina.

See the similarities?

But Lumina was a different class. To much stigma to carry for a sedan that will sell for alot more than the Lumina. Were talking about a larger car with near 400HP and a pricetag thats not very Luminy.... hehehe

See that'* just the thing, the Lumina is on the same chassis as the G8. In fact, they are the same car with just a name change.

Yeah, I would like to kick some serious azz with a station wagon. Call me weird, but I'd rather have a station wagon than one of those stupid crossovers.
