Article goes on to say the new GTO will be lower, sleeker, better looking, etc. Why not just say the new GTO will look nothing like the photo chop above. :lildevil:

Looks a little like a Mustang now, from the profile.

And I thought the 1st generation looked like a Sunfire. Damn that thing looks ugly! What's up with that Pontiac crest sticking out like that? And those headlights?:histeric:

The front end I kinda like. It's sort of got that "Mean Look" from a '77/'78 Trans Am.

The current car is nicer. THAT one is Ugly ! My friend got a 2005 Mustang GT and got eaten alive by a stock 2005 GTO. Those things are fast !

A Sunfire on steroids. I'll take the bar of soap over the ugly duckling.

I have heard that the new gto would be reto based. However, i dont think it will be that extreme. The headlights dont even fit in the body profile. That is a very bad photoshop. GTO's make 400hp atleast in 05. 06 will be the last model year on that platform. The new platform will be zeta based but still be built in australia and imported to the US. Last i heard there were going to be no delays in production:hmm:

That picture is something some guy drew up. If you read the fine print under it you will see that it is not a GM photo. I thought the new GTO would just be lower with a bigger intercooler, lol.

All I see when looking at it is a Mitsubishi Galant front end

The new GTO will nothing like the photochop above!!! The next Goat will have styling hints from both the seventies and eighties but will not be a pure retro look. Final design is almost done and it looks nothing, or at least very little, like that abomination above. There may be about a 6 month break between the end of '06 production and the beggining of '08 production, according to my buddy in Huntington Woods. There will be a representitive pic available in about 30-90 days. Keep watching the GM sites.;)

It has a wee bit tad of an Aztec look to it.

If they want to make it look good, make a jumbo version of that Solstice thing, only as a coupe instead...:rolleyes:Now THAT is one good looking Pontiac...

I'm not bonkers about the current style, but that design is far worse. Hopefully this is nothing anywhere close to the redesign, and if it is GM needs its head examined. http://www.ar15.com/images/smilies/smiley_nosmile.gif
