2009 Pontiac G6 CoupeS

That's right folks, Bucky the beaver is back. The boys from KGP just caught this lightly covered 2009 Pontiac G6 Coupe ( Or is it the 2010 Pontiac G6 Coupe? Who knows? ) out on the city streets bucking convention and the recent MotorTrend article proclaiming it's demise. As you can see, the new G6 coupe's getting umm — umm — not much in the way of changes other than a seriously revised front fascia with a big and wide combined lower intake. And is that an upgraded interior peeking out there? Does this look like your kind of car? Even if it'll have the rumored hybrid V6 engine under the hood? If so, have at the full spy report from KGP below the jump. We're going to flip back over and get some more sleep.

GM has begun testing facelifted prototypes for Pontiac's G6 Coupe, and we caught a lightly disguised version running on public roads outside of Detroit. The G6 gets a thoroughly revised front fascia, with some sharp character lines adding some interesting surface development compared to the current model's smooth nose. Instead of the current G6's twin lower intakes, the G6 facelift sports a central intake below the main grille, flanked by two angular intakes which wrap around the sides of the front bumper. While it appears that the current G6's headlights will be carried over, the rest of the car's redesigned nose successfully adds some attitude to the face of the G6.

The checkered tape covering the rear bumper suggests that the tail-end has been redesigned slightly, but any changes in play are very minor.
