Did you know that the Pontiac G8 is the best getaway car ever? Well you do now. One Missouri car thief has been able to elude authorities at least a half-dozen times in a stolen Pontiac...V8... RWD... FTW.
Recently, we posted about great cars that no one was buying. At number four was the Chevy SS, with a 415hp LS3 V8, rear-wheel drive and mag-ride suspension; it is a modern day E39 M5. The reason for such lackluster sales isn't because people don't want them, it is because they can't have the one they want.
Whenever we write about a new General Motors recall — which is often, these days — one of you jokers inevitably says "Wouldn't it be faster to make a list of GM cars that HAVEN'T been recalled?" Well, after going through today's infographic, it seems the Aussie Pontiacs are safe so far.
Long known for hot-rod sedans and coupes, Pontiac in 2009 released one of their hottest rods to date — the G8 GXP, with the power and looks that were enough to make you want to grab a helmet and go.
You miss your dead homie, sure, but how much? Would you stop traffic on a major freeway by doing donuts in your muscle car? That's what these mourners did on Atlanta's 285 this Monday.
A few months before General Motors killed Pontiac, Pontiac killed our dreams when they announced the cancellation of plans to bring the Holden Commodore Ute to America in the form of the Pontiac G8 Sport Truck. Almost three years later the sting of being denied access to the ultimate parts hauler after being told the…
GM will recall 38,400 2008 and 2009 Pontiac G8s in response to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concern regarding the front passenger air bag modules.
When Chevrolet announced last year it would import the Australian-built Chevy Caprice sedan as police-only fleet car, enthusiasts begged for a civilian version to no avail. Now one Maryland dealer says it will buck GM and sell 13 Caprices to the public. UPDATE: It's legit — but not for long.
A Maryland judge issued an $85 fine to the owner of a Pontiac G8 GT for illegal tail lights, despite being factory-installed and approved by the US Department of Transportation. She's promised to keep fining him. Judicial activism, FTL!
One of the best performance sedans GM ever built, the Pontiac G8 GXP, is dead. The Aussies still get a Holden version, and a wagon. Heck, this one from Walkinshaw Performance packs 603HP. Wagon. V8. Supercharger. Sometimes the world's unfair.
Walkinshaw Performance now offers a supercharger kit for the Holden Commodore HSV. The package costs $44,975, but it gives the HSV 644 hp and 592 lb-ft of torque. Because, you know, Pontiac geeks needed another reason to be angry.
