I like it better than the concepts also.

Just out of curiousity, why do you feel that there must or will be a GXP version?

????? Dont see what calls for all the fanfare. The styling is ultra bland and looks like so many larger imports that have swept away individual identity curves and lines. From 50 feet away it would look like 20 others. The dash puts me to sleep and looks identical to the boorish Buick ones of today. It is also all but void of instrumentation, Come on,... this is the "GT" model and all you have is temp and gas gauge???? Sorry but all I can do is yawn when I look the pics over. Speaking of Buicks, at least they attemtped to make the same body appear sporty. And You can actually drive off the lot with one today.

i too dont understand what all the excitement is about.. sure, the V8 RWD is HUGE! But i think that GM missed again on the styling.. the taillights are horrendous, and the rest of the car is rather bland. The Concept looked 100x better

Well, far as the taillights. i hated the ones on my SE also. and my brother didn;t like the ones on his jeep... You mod, thats how you can like it.

No one will ever make a car that all of us will all like.

I personally love the tails.
If the y made a GXP Torrnet, they'll make this. They almost always make a faster version shortly after the release of a new model.

oh i agree completely, i didnt like the tails on my car, and i changed them.....

I just think that maybe GM could have put a little bit more into designing this car... and what happened to the 2-tone interior that was in the concept?

I'm with Toasty and Venom, I probably would not do a double take if I saw it driving down the highway...
