Remember the GTO? Well, it's coming back...

LUTZ: MONARO WILL BE NEW GTO
One of the most memorable musclecar nameplates will soon be back spinning its tires. The Pontiac GTO will return to the market in time for the 2004 – with a concept version likely debuting at the next Detroit auto show – revealed General Motors product chief Bob Lutz, but the next-generation of this classic tire smoker will be coming from “down under.” Confirming earlier reports in TheCarConnection, Lutz announced that GM would do a GTO version of the Holden Monaro, a rear-drive coupe being sold in Australia. The decision to turn to Holden, he added, “gets a high-performance rear-wheel-drive vehicle back into our system far faster than if we started from scratch,” designing an all-new GTO in the U.S. Few details are being offered other than the fact that the next GTO will be V-8-powered.

When it has ...

... a 389 cubic inch V8 with a 6-barrel carburetor, bench seats, and a 4-speed stickshift with a clutch that weighs about a ton that scares you sh*tless when you gun the engine and drop it ...

... then it can call itself a Pontiac GTO.

Until then it's another nice, bland fin-de-siecle kinda-sporty sedan.
