John, the logic that you've applied makes perfect sense to me. The trim level letters can't be there for no reason.

Wouldn't be the first time cars had letters that didn't stand for anything


Anyone else want to place bets as to how long it'll take for this thread to get locked?

Haro..I think Pat'* on the money with his response due to the number of times etc that this has become a heated debate when we have substantiated proof (that is if we believe Bill W) that they really tossed letters on there for whatever reason


SSEi

Super Sport Edition I (wouldn't dare think of trying to pass...ain't gonna happen)

Unfortunately, being an SE driver, and playing the game even though I know they really have no meaning, I would change SE to Standard Edition. Not a great marketing tool to be sure, but makes more sense in the line-up. If the letters were really acronyms, which they are not....

Ok, we all know they don't mean anything but I always amused myself by thinking that SSEi stood for: "Super Sport Enhanced Induction"

Ok. There, I've said my peace so sue me.

They ARE there for no reason. Pontiac doesn't use the same naming conventions as any other GM division. I called and asked, they researched their archives and came back with the fact that they mean NOTHING. Only SLE, which started as a PACKAGE, not a badging, actually means anything.

INDUCTION or INDUCTED would be a falshood to the other models. ALL cars are inducted. Just in different ways.

The GM Z codes are RPO code listings. Check the RPO'* on every car or truck badged with a Z.

The Z71 RPO code designates 2 skidplates, Bilstein shocks, and badging.
