Default New Pontiac concepts

Hey, check out the new Pontiac concept cars on the website! The ones that stand out to me are the 300hp Grand Am GT (Turbocharged!) and the 5.3L V8 Grand Prix producing 350hp! These cars look hot!!! :P Let me know what you think. I think if these concepts make it, Pontiac will definitely add some excitement in GM.

dont get your hopes up. Usually those are quite watered down IF they even make it to production.

There won't be a Grand Prix that has 350 horses from the factory. Nor a 300HP Grand AM. No way in hell will GM sell that.

Default Why not?

Why wouldn't either the grand prix or the grand am exist according to the concept in perhaps a limited addition type? Maybe this could be the come back for the grand am in a couple of years to replace the weird camry like g6.

Pontiac isn't going to make a Grand Prix or Grand Am that could possibly be faster than the GTO.

GM makes you pay for speed. Your not gonna get 300 HP unless you pay 35 grand. The GA and GP would be under that.

The GXP line will probably go up. I think they'll boost the HP on the GXP bonney before the rest of the line goes out though.

Pontiac is definatly the most progressive of the GM line, but they r always held back, so Chevy can have the proverbial hi-performance moniker. But look at what Chevy offers now..not much really, in my opinion. That stupid half truck thingy, an ugly monte carlo, a nice Malibu, if it had a bigger displacement.The Impala SS is ok, but the Bonny beats it hands down. Well anyway........ chevy is starting to really suck.
