    It's rumored (or a poorly kept secret) Holden is working on a new coupe (aside from the new Camaro) based on the Commodore. It may be one or two years, but you can bet a new Monaro will emerge when the time is right.

    Pontiac is likely to sell it, the bigger question is will it carry the GTO name, or simply be a G8 coupe?

    If the retro Camaro is too wild for you, Pontiac will have a contemporary and sophisticated alternative.

    whats retro about G8? and G8 coupe? Even the firebird name would fit it. And yes i know you mean the GTO name but why not? It fits the car and I like the name GTO better than Firebird :dunno:
