    I agree wholeheartedly. It's just stupid that they put "gas guzzlers" tax on cars that make "good" hp. I personally think that german automobiles are some of the best engineered cars today. Don't get me wrong, I love all the american made cars today, since they have "upgraded" their technology. I am gonna save the 15,000 I was going to put down on a shelby, since dealer markups are INSANE! That car was supposed to be introduced with a base of 42,000, and they are on e-bay selling for 55k and higher. makes me sick!

    I personally think it depends on the sales of the GTO.
    Pontiac wouldn't serve itself well with two high performers in the same camp.
    If they brought it back, they'd almost have to turn the GTO into their "mid-size" option and use the TA as their performance car.

    As well they should. It looks like mom's grocery getter.

    As far as not serving themselves well having two high performance vehicles...I'd place bets the Firebird would outsell it by miles.
    They know they done did wrong with the way it looks, it's not retro, nor is it sporty to even look at IMO, it looks like a Camry on roids.
    It's obvious what they would have to do to sell both...make both look bad ass...simple as that.

    Even if they made the Firebird look like a rebadged Camaro, with a T/A nose thrown on...but somehow, I just can't see Pontiac doing that, they've always done their own wild thing.
    I'm not holding my breath though, I have serious doubts about them bringin it back, surprise us all Pontiac.

    Went to the Washington D.C. auto show yesterday and spoke with the pontiac representive a little. He said the GTO officially will be no more in 2009 and there are "rumors" about the firebird. Guess we will have to wait and see.

    What the are you talking about? There is NO more GTO, 2006 was the last year! its gone, except for the new ones sitting on dealers lots which no one wants. Pontiacs only current "performance" car is the Solstice, what a joke " we build excitment" LOL. I predict Pontiac and Buick will be Gone in the next five years, you better like the looks of the Camaro.

    That is just sad, the Solstice is their only performance car, they couldn't make a GTO anybody wanted, who the hell is workin there anyways?

    I say they hire me for...I don't know...a cool hundred and fitty a year and I'll turn things around real quick. Of course I'll want perks like the first off the line of any car I design.

    Ya know what? I'm writin their asses an email write now.

    I went to the northeastern auto show today in providence, there were 3 different G6's in the pontiac area but not a single GTO, I was bummed. but there were 2 corvettes in the chevy area, one with the LS2 and the other with the LS7, which kinda cheered me up. They also had the chevy "SS" concept (ugly).

    The sad thing is that most company's, especially car company's,don't care what "the little guy" wants. It's all about the mighty dollar. Look, Ford lost 34million the last quarter. Their biggest loss to date. And I thought that they would be doing very good considering they are really one of the few companys left with a sport car.

    Yes but read why. It's sure not because the Mustang isn't selling.
