Looks like a bit deformed 6-coupe...:D

I like the interior looks. Not the red, but the feeling the design provides.

Actually Steve,

Holden has been criticised in Australia, of having Copied other cars looks with the Current Model Commodore , especially taking some of Mazda's Cues !!!

But imitation is the most Sincere form of Flattery !!!!!!!! :D :D

That's going to be the new Pontiac GTO (with a different front ) It has US GM all over it.

Only thing that bugs me about this car is the rear quarter panel could use to lose a few pounds (or kilos for you smarter Euros out there).

The interior is nice but the outside is kinda dull..
The old calibra looks better IMHO.

God I hate the "standard" system here in America... as an engineer it's such a PITA.... total legacy standard. Who the hell remembers whether 5/32 or 3/16 is larger off the top of their heads anyway? grrrrr...

The back end isn't that bulky looking in the flesh. There are a few driving around Wagga and they seem to have a better balance from the door to the back bumper. I think the camera angle is emphasizing the back end a bit for some reason.

Renault Megane Sedancoupe? :D

Really nice looking, although a little dull. The interior was stunning! Not as nice as MPS but far enough :)

Alero has a nice "roofline" but it must be the most boring car ever made. At least a Nissan Micra looks funny, the Alero is just... B00ring..

One of my favorite cars that isn't for sale in Europe.......it will be a Pontiac GTO indeed. I really hope it will get to Holland! Looks amazing!

and 0.1875 is clearly larger than 0.15625 without any guessing or recalculating time. Yeah, it seems a minor inconvenience to do the fractional conversion in your head, but when you have to do it 500 times in a row, you start to wish the metric system or even S.I. were truly universal.

Looks like a plain car with a bit of dress-up. I liked it at first, but after looking at it for more than a second or two, it's plainess showed thru.

Pontiac GTO will have a different front end to make it look more like a Pontiac, similar grille to a Grand Prix. Really it is a car that rocks when you see it in the flesh... ok cars don't have flesh but you know what I mean. It really stands out in a crowd. Deisil is going to drive one in his next X movie.

Check out the article and pics here:
