    Pontiac G8 vs. 2008 CTS

    It should be here early next year. V6 should start at $25K and V8 at 35K. You can get a V8 for the price of next gen. CTS V6. I know it's not a Cadillac but the car is a good value.

    Re: Pontiac G8

    This new G8 looks fantastic, I like it alot. The interior is (imo) is way better then the current CTS and probably one of the best interiors GM as produced, second to the Nex Gen CTS of course. And man, its gonna be available with the 362hp & 391 lb.-ft. of torque, crazy. That's more then the 08 CTS!! Even the base model G8 with a V6 has 261hp.

    This a duplicate thread. You can find it already in the lounge. No sense in saying it twice.

    Re: Pontiac G8

    Wow, that shit is BAD!! Maybe once those hit the used market I might be lined up to get a fully loaded V8 version to replace my current CTS.....

    I will still have a CTS in the stable, though!!

    Yeah, that's because it has the same engine as the one in our cars.

    though the base model comes in at around 3885 pounds which is almost 400 pounds heavier than a cts. its only 44 pounds lighter than an sts so i believe the performance for the 261hp engine will be very similar to that of the sts and not the cts.

    Re: Pontiac G8

    I say we keep this here. the G8 thread in the lounge is a general discussion.

    This thread is a specific discussion about the comparison of the new g8 vs the new o8 cts and the possibilities of future ownership of both vehicles.

    the G8 is actually the replacment for the current grand prix line.
    I owned a 97 gtp grand prix and I would probably own a grand prix if gm hadnt changed the body style to the current look which is... pathetic.

    This G8 is a holden rebody, has some edgy styling and is available in RWD with a V-8 and all the bells and whistles most people actually want in a car.

    oh special note in the grand prix line there are several levels of packages.
    the SE (base model v-6)
    the GT (in this case the v-8)
    The GTP (in the old series this meant a supercharger)
    the GXP (god car, currently its a v-8 in the current model and a LOT of upgrades)


    I would look for a GXP version of this car in the second year of production, possibly a supercharged version.

    In person the G8 looks a lot like a bmw M series, the pics really dont do it justice.
