    GM is already using the recently made billion dollar Holden VE Commodore platform to make a the new Camaro. But Pontiac only has the budget for one of the two coupes, it won't be a re badged Holden job as the GTO was, it will be just based on the Holden architecture.

    Which badge would you prefer to see make an appearance?

    I say GTO. I have a LS1 Firehawk right now so I want to keep that as last of the breed :) I also have an 05 GTO but I think a ground up design will do well as Pontiac's performance car. No need for Pontiac to compete with Chevy for the pony car market. Besides, I would rather have a more expensive but better built car with more luxury features. That is what the GTO is about. :cool:

    Maybe GM should just ditch the make a new performance car route, and bring the Holden brand to america. Bring over all the performance cars, the SS Commodore, the HSV GTS, the V8 ute, and the next monaro :dunno:

    They do sound bad but any 4 cylinder import motor sounds 10 times worse. Even the import V6's sound shitty. Take the M3 for example. Just fucking horrible sounding.

    Edit: M3 is inline 6 but you get the point.
