That might not necessarily be the case. GM could decide to indefinetly put the programs on hold.

Corvette Racing is leaving GT1 for more competition in GT2. Is this going to effect the GT2 program?

What are you talking about? SVT designed and engineered the vehicle that became the Shelby GT500. Had the timing not been right and Ford/Shelby not reunited, the car still would have been produced, just not at a GT500 or bearing Shelby's name on it.

Of course, you could always point to the SVT F150 Raptor as the most recent proof that SVT is alive and well at Ford.

High performance vehicles division. How many people buy these cars? I can still get 400hp Corvette's and Camaros, i can get a 300hp Cadillac. I can get a 260 hp Malibu. Sounds good to me.

It won't hurt my feelings any to see Hummer,Saab,Pontiac go away,I do feel that saturn deserves a chance though,at least for now.Pontiac has IMHO always had the worst styling of all GM's divisions,along with Saab(yuk!)Their cars look the same today as they did 15 years ago(still ugly)Hummer...who cares?Only the rich can afford to drive them anyway.

No mention of Buick?But then again,gotta have a car for all those senior citizens out thereSo i think it's good for GM to cut-off some of the "Fat",unfortunatelly though i feel sorry for all the auto workers who are gonna loose their jobs because of it:(

I had read that Buick's are more popular overseas countries.

The performance division was disbanded...but the Camaro SS, for instance...was not produced under the performance division. As such -- there will be future sporty versions of GM cars. They'll just be built as production models, like the Camaro SS, instead of "oh, and lets to this", like the Cobalt SS. No need to get your panties in a bunch.
