    Actually, no. All GM did was make a new bumper for an existing car that all they had to do was import. They would've had to raise the price by at least $15k to get the GTO to look like that.

    But I agree, it is bland by today's standards of the 350Z, G35 coupe, new Mustang, Audi TT, RX-8, etc. All have way more 'pop' to the design.

    yeah, actually the name kind of hurt the car too IMO, something with as much history as the GTO should not be on a rebadged aussie car :greddy:

    Calling it a GTO is a mockery of the name.

    No, GM imported their Holden Monaro for Pontiac as cheaply and easily as possible.

    The Ram Air 6 concept was created after the boats were already landing in the US. I agree though, it was a great idea that would have worked with the proper execution. The Ram Air 6 concept or Pontiac badged HSV GTO is the proper execution and they would have sold out FAST.
