A decade ago, consumers were in a stink about the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST. This Nouveau El Camino was destined for greatness according to its quickly formed and large fan base. The 1/2 car and 1/2 truck had nostalgic fans of the El Camino in the throes of delight. However, economy strapped Pontiac had to shelf the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST project as soon as it appeared.
I’m not going to lie…I have a ton of nostalgia for some of the older Pontiac models. So, it’s interesting to me to take a look at what could have been an epic comeback story.
Why Didn’t The 2011 Pontiac G8 ST Make It?
Overall, there was a move to place anything popular on the market once the financial problems of Pontiac parent company GM were off the budgetary fritz for good. Following the government bailout of GM, the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST was once again on the wish list of Pontiac executives as well as the vehicle’s fans. However, Pontiac decided that that they weren’t going to go through with the 2011 Pontiac G8 ST after all.
Is The 2011 Pontiac G8 ST Gone For Good?
It’s official! According to MotorAuthority.com, the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST is forever over for the United States. However, there are still parts of its engineering in cars in other parts of the world. In fact, the rear wheel engineering from the 2011 Pontiac G8 ST, called the Zeta Platform, is found in the upcoming 2011 Australia’s Holden Commodore line of vehicles.
