    The Viper saved Chrysler from bankruptcy in the 90s, no reason to drop it now when it's way better than that RT-10 ever was

    I think everyone knew it would, but were scared to admit it.

    EDIT: Because people are too fucking stupid to read the thread...

    FIRST POST IS NOT THE CHEVY G8, THIS IS:

    It's the same fucking thing without hood scoops and a Chevy badge. Granted, I'll admit it's not as sporty looking.

    I don't fucking understand you guys. BITCH BITCH BITCH UGLY PONTIAC GRILL AND USELESS HOOD SCOOPS! WHINE WHINE WHINE!

    When it's fixed, BITCH BITCH BITCH, WHINE WHINE WHINE!

    Well, it's obvious GM hasn't learned their lesson from
    building ugly, boring looking cars in the past.

    Out of curiosity, why is it the Caprice and not the Impala or Lumina.

    Chevy's naming makes no sense to me as I wasn't alive during their glory days. What was the Caprice in terms of history.

    Wow...a picture of a rumor/possibility.

    And if you look, the grill looks easily changeable.

    The G8 won't sell if the Chevy version looks like that.

    That is amazingly solid, comfortable, and powerful.

    Not to mention the new V6 is extremely powerful, and the LSX V8 can be tuned with proper gearing to get 30MPG on the highway.

    Body's gonna be the same as the G8 which btw was the same body as the Holden it came from. They're not gonna change much if anything more than the badges and grille.
