Cost efficient wise going with a model that you guys have already save GM money...... you know, despite the case of having a coupe, just because the Sedan sells, it doesn't mean a sporty coupe will do the same for couple buyers would purchase from other makes.

    Just like you said, the G8 is a family car catered package, reared at 4 or 5 passengers unlike a coupe. I think coupe owners will take their business elsewhere rather than GM.

    Whatever the case, I still appreciate my G8 though the wife is driving it and not me... as a matter of speaking, your Holden G8 front looks like the 4 cylinder Saturn L200 that I'm driving right now.

    Would you have liked your front to resemble that of our G8s?

    Stay safe and sain,
    I think nowadays, Holden (our GM subsidiary) bank on selling RWD platform cars overseas, as our market alone would not sustain the development costs. I reckon we make a good quality product, but just cannot compete with the likes of Toyota, Nissan, etc, if we do not look globally. It would take GM in the US to say they want the Coupe 60 before anything happened, as our market will not justify the tooling for that car in such low volumes if it were to be for our market only. With the Camaro on the horizon (although, I too, am not a fan of the interior....), it almost certainly appears that the Coupe 60 will remain a concept-only car.

    As for the front-end, I probably do like the Pontiac treatment a little better than the style on our Commodore SS or SS-V. Having said that, however, I'm not a great fan of the VE over here, at this stage - it looks a bit too boxy for me and the rear spoiler on our cars is hideous. It seems that the Pontiac G8 design is a little more sedate and is aligned more with my styling preferences.

    Enjoy your car mate.

    Thanks very much mate. They are leather and are as comfortable as they look! After a long trip of 5-6 hours driving, you come out feeling very fresh still.
