    Sadly driving the wrong wheels on a car that looks like a Toyota, only more bland.

    It's more than enough to put that boat into a retaining wall.

    You should read Car and Driver's review of it for extra hilarity.

    wait, a 300hp fwd impala is only slightly cheaper than a G8 GT, who would possibly buy one

    I think they were until the Zeta platform got scrapped? :dunno: I don't remember exactly, never paid that close of attention. Dunno why they didn't just take the G8 and strap Impala badges/change some shit on it. Sadly it would probably out sell the G8 three fold. I have only seen maybe 3-4 G8s driving around as compared to 11ty billion Impalas.

    GM is fucking retarded

    nobody wants to buy pontiacs because they look so bland and have used the same fucking grille since 1960

    the g8 looks like a FWD family car, IMO its way worse than the charger.. the new pontiacs remind me of the current ugly ass dodge cars
