Do you know if G.M. have plans for a new GTO design for 2007?

Last I heard there was going to be a next generation GTO. Also of not is that GM will have a concept Camaro at the Auto Show this year.

Why build such a car? If it doesn't get at least 40 mpg, who will buy it?

Lets just say that one of your 50 dogs gets sick and you are pressed for time to get him to the vet to save his life. Do you want a 40 mpg car that seriously lacks power, or do you want a 400 hp rocket ship?

50 dogs?!? Fury, have you acquired some new pooches?
Better get a hi-power SUV (with a Strate-8) - what if more than one dog becomes ill?

From what Bob Lutz has said over on GM's industry blog...is that in response to customer sentiment, there was a desire on the part of numerous members of the engineering team to re-think the GTO and maybe provide some new styling on a different platform. This different platform, also known as the "Zeta" platform is where the next generations of the GTO will be built from.

And actually...what is even more scary is the thought of a {GASP!} 4-door GTO...like the charger:

They can go ahead and make a 4 door GTO if they like, as long as they bring back the Camaro.

Bring back the Fin camero!

a 4 door GTO doesnt bother me... the old school GTOs were bigger than todays car... and thats what bothers me about todays GTO.... its too Fin small for a muscle car. Give that thing some balls and then watch it fly off the lots. Look at what happened when they attached a nutsack to the Mustang design...
