Hmmm....interesting to see what they have done. This seems to be pretty close to what we have been told. Although there are some rear quarter panel treatments that are not shown on these images....I guess we have to wait to see what they actually release in Detroit. I am sure they are looking for feedback prior to releasing the final version. Remember, change is good. Not everyone will like it, but it will grow on you.
The wheels look like the same one's used on the up-coming Pontiac G8, chromed perhaps but still from the common parts bin... I was hoping for something exclusive... We'll have to see what shoes she wears in January...
I like the look from the side and the 3/4 front view... The arse?... Never was a fan of the big booty...

Re: Is this it?
I can't wait to order one. If they hit production in time for spring delivery though it would be a great surprise. I'm not getting one in the fall (RSA's have poor traction and the "all season" F1's are anything but all season). So it may be spring of '09 for me unless there is some miracle like all season tires that work in winter and still stick, or AWD.
After all this hype, I'm a little disappointed. I think a modification of the standard grille would look better, such as mesh background with body colored transverse ribs like in the CTS Sport (SEMA) instead of the ugly gray bars. Or possibly blacked out plastic background with the body colored ribs. I think the chrome lip around the mesh in the Edmunds photos makes the grille look aftermarket cheesy. I prefer the proportions of the standard grille better with the upper part being much larger.
1-Yellow or red calipers
3-Another inch lower
Now if the car came in at 525 hp, I'd also be a little disappointed after hearing Lutz speak of the power output being "surprisingly high."
These pictures turned down the volume on my enthusiasm..... I hope the real thing looks better. The ground effects kit looks cheap and doesn't flow well and the rear is worse. Something out of a import show..... I will save final judgement till the pics are official....
