Also from that article

Quote:
Unlike previous products involving reworked imports (Cadillac Catera, Pontiac GTO), the G8 was part of this platform'* plan from its barest beginnings.
So this means that GM is not copying

Well It would be ideal if GM could designed and built a performance sedan exclusivly for the USA but for now we can put up with holdens leftovers. At least the G8 is fresher than the GTO that failed here. G8 is a great replacment for the Grand Prix.

The G8 is not a leftover from Holden.... see the quote in my post above.

This platform was designed to have the G8 part of it.... The Holden was just released first
