2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Middle Eastern Cousin
June 15, 2009
Last week, Josh put up a simple post about how much his wife likes the looks of our 2008 Pontiac G8 GT.
A respondent or two took issue with the G8's bifurcated Pontiac grille. Others bemoaned the loss of a great car as GM attempts to reorganize itself.
Here's a photo of a Chevorlet version of the very same car that is on-sale today -- in the Middle East. It carries a name we thought was dead, too. It's the 2009 Chevy Lumina SS.
So what do you think of this nose? How about the stand-up wing in the next picture? It's the same one used on the Holden Commodore SS.
Point is, the only thing standing between a Chevy version of the G8 GT in North America is probably a few certification tests and crash tests.
And the will to do it, of course.
