2009 Pontiac G8 GXP
OK, OK, so no one’s actually said anything definitive. GM head honcho Fritz Henderson said “not a chance, suckers,” when asked about the likelihood of the G8 surviving the bankruptcy. But now there’s dissention in the ranks, as Tom Stephens (a VP in charge of product development) says it might live … with another GM badge.

If any of you wise-asses shouted out “Holden!” you get brownie points for creativity. But we think Mr. Stephens was referring to an American badge … Chevy? Wait, what do they have left? Maybe a GMC! But before you get your hopes up, Stephens went on to say this about the potential for the G8: “I know there’s still discussions on it. But Chevrolet already has several sedans. How many sedans do you need to cover the waterfront?”

Hmm, jury’s out on this one! Can someone calculate the Vegas odds of this happening?

    You rang?

    While I wish that platform would continue on (I’d buy it regardless of whose badge is on it), that little blurb doesn’t suggest there’s much hope.

    The spec I’d be stoked to pick up would be in GT 6.0L 6MT Sportwagon…which you’ll likely find parked next to the Unicorns.
