Pontiac G8 - Aussie-made Pontiac G8 bucks the US sales trend - News
THE Holden-sourced Pontiac G8 last month had its best sales result since launch last year, despite the weakness of the US car market.
Pontiac sold 2707 G8s last month – twice as many as January and up 27 per cent on G8’s previous best monthly total of 2126 last April – the first full month of sales.
The monthly average of G8 sales during the last six months of 2008 ran at 1455. In January, Pontiac sold 1331 units.
Pontiac is happy to point out that of the 2707 G8s sold last month, 2695 were sold to private customers.
Like many cars for sale in the US, the G8, including the high performance GXP variant, are attracting cash-back deals of up to $A4100.
Total car sales for General Motors stood at 53,813 last month, 50 per cent below the February 2008 figure.

The car must be getting good customer feedback and acceptance at last. This news must make a few people at Holden feel a little better about the export program.
Not many rear wheel drive cars like it in the US now - mostly front wheel drive stuff.

2,707 cars in a country with 306,000,000 people. Thats equivalent to selling about 150 cars in a country of 21,000,000 like Australia. Its good that all buy 12 sold were private buyers as well.
am i the only one that thinks the front end is plain ugly?

- UNDERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
- OVERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the rear.
- HORSEPOWER is how fast you hit the wall.
- TORQUE is how far you take the wall with you.
I have an 09 G8 GT, but I agree that the Holden front end looks much better. I'm planning on changing out my hood and front bumper for the SS V look. Either way though, it is a wonderful car!
