G8 Production Started

Didn't see a post about this, so just thought I'd pass on the update.

Nice Find Silverado!

What they failed to mention...or maybe they didn't. But I thought the G8's production was to eventually shift to the states?

Anyways, 0-60 in 5.3sec (obviously auto) Wow...now take off ~300 pounds, and maybe we're right in our 0-60 guesses, no?

Reading early reviews of its sister cars and watching Jeremy Clarkson drive one, I already can see how well our Camaro will handle. It is just INSANE!!!!!!!!! The notion that American cars can't handle is now DEAD. :party0048: :party0038:

I was going to guess that it would be built along side the Camaro in oshawa, since there is nothing else slated for that line as far as I know. And an entire factory for just 1 car doesn't seem too efficient to me. The G8 is the Camaro's closest relative too.
