Chevrolet GTO??? what do you guys think?

what do you guys think of making a larger camaro to fit more people and calling it a gto?

it would be a muscle car instead of a pony car

i don't think the name being on a chevy is a big deal since there have been ferrari gto's as well

and the gto name is thought of as its own brand more than anything

would love to see a concept of this in the future when gm is in better shape

since i know we won't be getting a trans am in the near future...why not expand the camaro chasis to a different market

I think it's a bad idea, GTO has a loyal following and should be respected as such...If anything just bring back the chevelle line..there were 4-door and 2-door chevelles atleast.
Love those 2 door chevelles!!!!

If GM wanted to make a larger muscle car under the Chevy flag, the should call it a Chevelle, IMO. GTO is reserved for Pontiac use only and it wouldn't cross over well. But IF this happens, GM needs to not make the mistake of putting 4 doors on it like the Dodge did with the Charger.

not a bad idea either

but i'm not saying the gto should be some rinky dink car either it would look great with more room and good power...

but chevelle would probably be a better fit

i did like your idea..my main point is how good an idea is off shooting the camaro into a bigger car and how cool it could look and which past muscle car would fit the bill

price wise should it be more expensive since its bigger?

but then again if somebody wants a bigger car with more room they can always get a cadillac cts...

well price wise it all depends on how much bigger if it stays the same basic size and just gets restyled then not dramatically more expensive. If it moves up in size then yes.

Don't make it look like the Camaro...maybe the same underpinnings....stretched frame...but not the same body.

Dodge did the smart thing of making a 4 door charger. The market for 2 door cars is very small right now; they needed to make it 4 door. Their 2 door car is the challenger!!! Dodge was able to resurrect the Charger nameplate, but still make a pretty popular car.

I do not see GM bringing another 2 door car because they would just increase inter-brand competition.

the last gto was just too ordinary looking...it looked like a regular pontiac which is why it didn't sell well..

something like a gto needs to stand out

the styling would have to be a dramatic change from the camaro to work

2 door version of the Malibu or the Impala? I always thought the Malibu was a decendant of the Chevelle

they had a lot of stuff planned with the zeta platform until they started to get into trouble

bell air and a few good looking buicks as well...i think one was the buick velletee

and i hate it when people say that the foreign cars are better designers...thats not true...its just that gm is held back by things like legacy costs and government regulations
