20 Pontiac is DEAD

After 83 years in the business, Pontiac has been officialy killed by GM. And it's no wonder. With weak products like the G3,G5, and G6 coming off the line, Pontiac was doomed. But I am sure we're all going to miss the G8! But there is even more bad news. With Pontiac gone, Holden is also on the fast track to extinction, losing maybe millions every year from now. What do you think about Pontiac's demise?

I mourn Hummer, but not Pontiac, during their last 10 years they built some horrible cars, I used to have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT sedan, if I could afford to get everything fixed on it, it would have spent more time being worked on than being driven, the last straw was when it caught fire while I was driving it to work one afternoon 4 years ago, I was still inside when the fire started.

yes, the viper is probably the fastest cobra type car you can buy and besides cheap 2 door 4 seat coupes with big engines its my favorite car.

What a shame, the people who created the Muscle Car are gone.

Tragically, it might not end with Pontiac. Saturn, who makes the exotic-looking Sky, is probably going down and GM isn't alone. Dodge is thinking about axing the Viper. If that happens... :(

PS: If Dodge does axe Viper, I can easily see one going for over $200,000 in 20 years at an auction.

why did it have to be them? they actually stood out a little (they only used the shape of their grille to differ from a box but whats a bmw?). goodbye affordable 2+4 performance cars with low price and amazing engines. there is no type of car i love more than those.

I didnt really car about Pontiac that much, but the G8 wasnt a Bad car, i wouldnt mind owning one, but i think id rather have my Skyline. personally i woulda have loved to see a Retro version of the GTO before they went to the grave, is it actually official??
