Introducing Pontiac’s G8
While at the Chicago Auto Show, I had the opportunity to speak with Pontiac’s General Manager, John Larson, who asked me what he had to do to get me into the new Solstice. As a roadster lover and owner of a 2-seater myself, I thought it was great opening line! Later at the show, John gave me an upclose and personal introduction to Pontiac’s new G8, its first-ever, rear-wheel drive performance sedan. Featuring aggressive styling and a muscular stance, look for the G8 to be in showrooms in early 2008.
