2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Get 'em while they last

July 13, 2009

Here's some irony for you. There's a rumor that Pontiac vehicles are selling so well...

GM may terminate the brand sooner than expected. One thing's for sure, they're not building any more Pontiacs. That's too bad because the G8 GT is a great car.

While visiting a local Pontiac/Buick/GMC dealer, we could see the only remaining Pontiacs were a few G6s, G5 coupes and one G8 GXP in the showroom with a "Not for sale" sign in the window - is it collectible already?

Some GM dealers are hoping the G8 turns into a Buick. Sound crazy, remember the GSX, T-Type Regal and the GNX? What do think, is Buick ready to recapture the glory days with a car like the G8?
