DETROIT — Despite earlier reports that it might have scrapped plans for a new family of rear-wheel-drive vehicles in North America, General Motors to the contrary has now expanded its Zeta architecture to include a variety of new products for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and Pontiac, Inside Line has learned.

The first of the new Zeta models is the Pontiac G8 sedan, based on the Australian Holden Commodore SS-V and due in Pontiac showrooms in early 2008. It could be joined next spring by a new Buick Park Avenue sedan, based on the Holden Statesman and just introduced in China.

While those two rear-drive four-doors are only mildly revised versions of Australian products, the next wave of Zeta models for the States will boast unique sheet metal. They include the 2009 Chevrolet Camaro, which goes into production in late 2008 and should begin arriving at U.S. dealers in early '09. It will be followed in short order by the replacement for the Pontiac GTO, which is due in fall 2009 as a 2010 model and will continue to be built in Australia.

I think an intercooler would hide rather nicely in there and get loooots of nice clean air.

I'm slightly addicted to boost.

What is this an image of? Is it the G8, because I can't find a single pic of a prototype/concept GTO for the 09 year.

It sort of looks small, like an M3. Got any side views?

I've seen the arabic market version of it in person. It's called the Chevy Lumina here. They have an SS version too. I think it looks pretty nice. The interior is outstanding. You can see it on gmarabia.com. The G8 is scheduled to replace the Grand Prix. Hopefully they do release a new GTO. It isn't a Firebird/Trans Am, but at least it's a Pontiac. I like the added touch of luxury that they have. They will certainly have the same options in the Camaro though, so if no two-door Pontiac is released, it's obviously my pick. Same goes if the said Pontiac is butt ugly. Either way I win hehe! Also on a side note: GM High Tech Performance did an article on the G8. It's tuned for 362HP...on REGULAR 87 OCTANE. You could probably get 20 just by doing a simple dyno tune for premium fuel.

I prefer the G8's sharp lines over BMW's softer ones.

I think the G8 GT looks great.

The G8 looks like a "winner" IMO.

IF I could change anything cosmetically, I'd lose the scoops on the hood, and reshape the "kidney" shape of the grill, and "clean up" the appearance. A little to "busy" for my tastes. Otherwise, I like the way it looks.
