Supposedly, they might not be closing down Pontiac, but will change it over to a "niche" car company, meaning that Pontiac would probably only sell their Solstice, G8, G6, and whatever "sporty" cars they have that I forgot to mention. That, and they won't be bringing out the Pontiac SUT.

The problem is that it would be based on the G8 platform, so even a base model SUT would be like mid-20 grand. It woulda been a pretty sweet truck though. They shoulda called it the El Camino. That woulda saved it!

I think they've been making them in Australia since the 90's. The ones down there are fawsome! They have races for them and everything! That's when you start talking about some $80,000 trucks! That's what the SUT was supposed to be to a lesser extent. Those trucks were amazing.

I'll post some pics if I find any.

There you go. Now, imagine that with about 200 more horsepower, lowered about 4 inches, and with some wide racing tires, and that's the kind of racing they have in Australia. Cool

Gm is my favorate company but they f'd up bad, if they get rid of Hummer who cares? the unstoppable H1 is discontinued, so it only leaves the chevy tahoe being put inside a H2 body and that stupid H3, get rid of Hummer! then mabey even GMC can go there is not much to GMC but a name... the seirra is nice but chevy has the silverado that has a more respected and well know name and then the yukons are just a chevy Burban and rest of gmc is suv's...GMC= all the same as chevy with a little more luxury.... keep Chevy and Pontiac!

Hey! When Pontiac is gone (RIP), Chevy might start making the Ute as an El Camino. There is nothing to stop them from just putting an ugly Chevy grill on it and calling it an El Camino. They could even take the G8 and do the same thing. Never give up hope, GM could still be saved that way. JB

They won't do it. Not if they want to keep all of the money the government is giving them. Before you know it, they're gonna be forced to make cars that get 50 mpg and way 5 tons with all of the safety crap. The future is bright for American cars! NOT!

You know they (GM) are paying back the Gov.loans with stock. The Govt will own 51 % of GM after that is done.So "they" will be running GM and making those 50 MPG scooter boxes with our tax money. On a lighter note as soon as those dimwits realize that no one is going to buy one of those scooter boxes they will probably fold GM (mercy killing at that point) or sell it to the Chinese. The way I see it its a lose/ lose situation.They dont get that fact that if all they are going to offer is small little whoa nelly cars the average consumer that buys little whoa nelly cars is going to go Jap or Korean not GM's
which they didnt buy before.

If they wanted to help GM out, they should have forced GM to restructure and get rid of the friggin' auto unions. If it weren't for the UAW, most of GM's lineup over the past two decades would have been about $10 grand cheaper. But no, people demanded that they make $90,000 putting bolts in a door. Rolling Eyes

And the CEO's make 20 million running a failing company into the ground instead of trying to turn it around,why did it take so long for the new Camaro to come out and to get a car like the G8 or CTS.It almost like the boards of these co's wanted it to fail. Everyone is saying why is there no Cutlass or RWD Monte Carlo why was it replaced with the crap it was replaced with,we want them back,what do they do sell more of the same uninspired crap.Not necessarly bad cars but certainly not great or I gotta have it for the working guy.

Government standards over the past decade or so have been tightening nooses around car companies to make vehicles with better mpg's and less "emissions", if you believe in global Al-Goring. That meant that companies went for the cheapest, most efficient ways to get those mpg's, and front wheel drive was the easiest way to do that. It's not a matter of why did they do it at this point, I just want to know why no one in politics does their homework before they start going on witch hunts on things they think will get them some attention. Seriously, they get all butt-hurt over things that shouldn't even matter in the grand scheme of things. That, AND the owner's of the companies couldn't stand losing a million dollars out of their 20 million dollars that they make a year.
Sorry for posting up novel after novel on here, I just can't get over how friggin' stupid people get over money and politics. Evil or Very Mad

You know what I dont get . Why is it too hard for a politician to get up and say to the American people to buy American ,Why wasnt it ever said and why is it said in other countries. That we need to support our own.If you ever go or have gone to Europe you will easily see that the dominant car of the country you are in is built there,I dont know if its because of taxes but whatever it is it is .

Lol, that's cause some european cars are awesome! I'd be more than happy to take a mid 90's BMW 750 off their hands! It's simply because:
a. They take pride in what they make
b. We have quite a ways to go on quality control on our cars
Now, if America could do that, then maybe we wouldn't have to worry about going bankrupt! There's a thought!
