I'm wondering the same thing


I also like the last paragraphs...How is it a replacement for a bonneville when the GP is more powerful. (gen5, plus the 5.3 in the GXPs)

pontiac should offer the lowered ride height, larger brakes and 20s....

so when is ZZP or intense going to start selling a turbo or SC kit for it? Another 100HP would be a bit more like it.

I'm down for smaller, lighter wheels. Anything to help those 1/4 mile times. Gosh, the more I see these the more I want one.

hmm...that brake downgrade is not nice in my book, i really liked the sound of pontiac finally putting out a sedan with actually GOOD brakes. the wheels are pretty cool, but i can do without. I'm not a real big fan of low profile tires because of unavoidable road hazards.

but yeah! i really hope intense or someone comes up with some kinda induction or something for that thing, i mean 362 hp is nice. REAL nice, but faster never hurts. I can't wait to see these things on the road, the engine choices are excellent, its about time they got a base model engine in a car with some muscle and the option for more muscle is always excellent.

now start production already!!!!!!

*still wondering when i'm getting my april c/d*
