Pontiac G8 soul lives on Chevrolet Caprice body!

As a part of General Motors’ resurrection plan, Pontiac brand must die at the end of 2009. Which is a shame because not all their cars are rubbish! Pontiac G8 (Holden commodore, Vauxhall Monaro, Chevy CR8 or whatever it’s called in your market…) for example, is a brilliant sports sedan which offers great value for money. Now apparently, GM is also realizing “the car’s too good to waste!”

According to Bob Lutz (who has postponed retirement plans as the new GM rises) interview with Automobile magazine, they are considering importing the Australian-made car and rebadge it as the Chevrolet Caprice.

It’s kinda confusing! because we are already getting this car here in Middle East, as Chevrolet Caprice, Chevrolet Lummina and Chevrolet CR8! And they are literally the same! yea they might have different grilles, but they are the same car underneath. Now if I’m getting it right… Pontiac G8, which is a CR8, is becoming the Caprice, which itself is a Lummina, and they are all the same as Holden Commodore… Soit’s one car which is also some other cars at the same time… Damn, it’s kinda hard to get, please do comment if you know which is which!

ANYWAY, It’s a good car, and it’s great news they gonna keep it alive, THE END!
