While I agree with toast and venom that it'* not as exciting as the concept, I personally am more excited about RWD and 6 spd in a 4 door. As with many of the cars that have come out different than the concept, people somethwhere will probably make a kit that resembles the concept, at which time it will be bought if I happen to own one of these.

You can also see the 6 spd interior, the NAV, and Driver information centers in this:
http://www.pontiac.com/g8/

So it will have extra gauge info, just not as a gauge.

I agree they are sure to make a GXP version.

I hope there will be a huge aftermarket for it. GM is making it tough for me to decide what to get next once the Aurora gets "glass boxed"

I think its great.

Not to get off topic Jim, but what does "glass boxed" mean?

As to the styling comments, I'll agree that it doesn't jump out or shout at you, and I do really prefer the styling of the '96-99'* followed by the 2000-2005'*. However, it does follow the general styling clues of the G5 and G6 that are already here, so it'* pretty much as I expected.

No styling risks were taken, which is lamentable and somewhat typical of GM, with the possible exception of the current Cadillac line. I do expect that this will be a solid dependable vehicle with a fair amount of excitement under the hood, relatively speaking of course.

We should all probably keep in mind that the G8 line is not intended to specifically be a performance vehicle.

Honestly I like the outside, but I probably will NEVER own a newer vehicle due to the blah-ness of the interiors. I don't like really any new car'* interior. Alot of them look generic and cheap.

I'm not feeling the dash either, esp in the area around the radio and climate controls. Which leads me to Where are the readouts for those? In that recessed area above the cd player?
