I was looking at some more pictures of this car the other day and I go to thinking. This is a large, rear drive coupe. Yes, it's a fast one, but the styling is sort of bland (although I do think it's probably the best looking Pontiac). Anyway though, no matter how cool it is, it's in a market segment that is dead. Sales in the segment declined from about 1987 on or so. Ford put the nail in the coffin when thy ditched the MN-12 Thunderbird. Yet that seems to be the market the GTO is jumping in to, all be it at the performance end. Personality wise, The GTO seems to be at the level of say a cobra powered Thunderbird would have been at. What I'm getting at is in today's market, who's going to buy the New GTO. How many of these thing's does GM expect to sell. Former Firebird/Camaro guys won't be able to afford it. Same goes for the Mustang guys. Hard core performance guys will still go for the Vette. I figure it must be an image car then, to boost the Pontiac brand, but it doesn't seem extreme enough for that.
