    The Chevrolet variant won't be sold here with the Pontiac.

    GM has a ton of odd vehicles from other markets employees just tool around in. There's always a group of GM employees driving a Citroen 607 in the Dream Cruise.

    that's not entirely true...

    the Z34 Lumina that was a 2 door wide bodied car was actually worth buying, even though it was a front wheel drive car...

    i had a chance to buy one and passed it up :(

    Front end screams oversized Aveo, car looks like a oversized Malibu, the whole car in general screams boy ricer. :wtc: It will never sell in rural areas. Thank god they aren't calling this a Grand Prix.

    I'm sure the one in the picture is the one that will be sold in the Middle East. Their GTO was the Lumina SS.

    Sighted - Chevrolet Lumina SS 6.0L (Pontiac G8, not for US Sale)

    It's a Holden Commodore SS wearing bowties.

    No spoiler, 19" wheels.

    There has been more than one caught running around the US.

    Pontiac is selling the car here as the G8. Vauxhall is selling it in Europe as the VXR8. Chevrolet is selling it in the Middle East and South America.

    There will be some G8 owners out there that make theirs into a Chevy. :cool:
