Ugly !!! The first thing I"d do is gut the body for something else.. it looks like a cross between Sunflower, Grand *****, Neon end, and a whole lot of WTF did you do that for ?? On too much hippie pills What a way to kill a name... it would've been much better if they at least tried to copy a 300M style instead...

I think its a damn fine looking automobile. But the new 'Stang GT Concept at the Detriot show looks alot more muscle car like.

I wish Pontiac would stop making all their cars look like the Grand Prix. Even the new Bonneville GXP has very similar resemblence with the Grand Prix.

The new 2004 GP looks better. I like the idea of the 400+HP Cadillac CTS-v!

It IS a Holden. Pontiac partnered up with them for the chassis and body.
Uhh... guys, all LS1'* and LS6'* have plastic intakes...... It'* lighter, cheaper and they can make a more powerful design. The runners are quite different than what you think they look like. The are long, narrow and sideways...

Nothing in the works for a manual tranny...the 2004 Bonneville GXP will have a 4-speed auto

It'* possible with a pretty low cost. You just have to hack the valve body and covert it over to a manual. I might in the future when I get bored with my Bonneville.

It is also much easier to make variable length runners with plastic then with metal.

The only drawback i have seen to the plastic, not really plastic it is a composite material developed by Dupont called Nylon 66, is that you cannot extrude hone/port match the intake at least not yet.

Even this might change in a few years when more advanced composites come out.

In my opinion i love the engine and interior! ..but the exterior looks like a grand prix and a 02 honda civic blurred together. It is nice, but i think they could have done a bit more..

perhaps GM needs to hire the designers from hot wheels.
2003 first editions serieshas a "GT-03" that looks like a
modern 67 goat. very nice. too bad you cant drive it.
