That thing is just WRONG!!!
All that waiting and that is what they come up with, it looks like a hopped up Cavalier.

.......and don't get me started on turbochargeing the front drive Impala and calling it an SS!!
Sheesh!

Fred said it best..........My old 1970 GTO is rolling in its grave right now. (even the old converted Ventura............yea remember that monstrosity with the hood and GTO emblem, even looked better).

Shame of it is Ford is doing pretty good with the the Stang's, but Pontiac (and most of GM) are just stupid at times. You wonder who they paid for the design. The Vette and WS6 are the only things GM put on the road that get some respect these days.....

Give me 5 cans of Play-Doh, some Testors paint, 5days, and I'll get you a friggin GTO.

These car manufacturers need to give up on redesigns. They are ruining their foundations. The ONLY good one is the Ford GT. Why? BECAUSE IT LOOKS THE EXACT SAME.

Sorry, but the car in Organdoner's pics, does not deserve the GTO badge. It's pathetic, looks like a regular, run-of-the-mill rental car.

For the first 20k...then what happens? It will be beat by Cavaliers because it is in the shop every other day.

Those cavaliers do suck....Drivers Ed has them, 1st gear and 5500 will get you to about 20.

The new GTO is a ok car for what it is, I feel that the car looks too much like a regular Grand Am. GM put a few nice touches on it but someone said it looks like a cross between a Catara and a hopped up Cavalier and I agree. I can also see how people who remember to old GTOs could be a little turned off by it. I feel that the 03 Mustang Cobra is a much better value for the dollar. The GTO is going to be around $33,000. Now, something is good or bad or comparison.... An 03 Mustang Cobra coupe with 390HP, 390LB/ft of torque, independent rear suspension and a beautiful supercharger makes for one kick @$$ ride. By the way the Cobra coupes price tag is $34,000. How do I know?? I have one, for another grand I can pull up to a new GTO, Corvette or most anything else GM could throw at me and blow their doors off....and if a Z06 or a Viper happens to pull up, i'll see them in the rear view mirror of the new FORD GT. Nice try GM but the Blue Oval Boys still got ya....

It looks like a repeat of what Buick did with the GS series. Slapped a GS emblem on a Regal...........take a close look at this thing...... (and now my 1971 GS455 is now talking to my old 70' GTO in side-by-side grave plots).

Lets get some RallyII's wheels on this thing, a RA set of intakes mid hood, and widen the front end. (and the good ol' enduro bumper)......AND PLEASE let there be REAL twin tip (not one plugged up like on the new GP) dual's.........
