2010 Pontiac G8 ST Is DOA

January 6, 2009

We predicted it a few weeks back--or at least suggested it would be a grand candidate for the scrap heap. Now GM's gone and cancelled the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST, according to our buddy Mike over at PickupTrucks.com.

The latter-day El Camino was to be spun from the Pontiac G8 sedan chassis.  It was due to go on sale later this year, and was named in a Web-based contest that ended up with the unimaginative initials ST.

The dealers who sell Pontiacs were told of the decision this morning. GM has said it's trimming down the Pontiac lineup to no more than three vehicles, and with interesting stuff like the 2009 Solstice, G8 sedan and Fiero--wait, they don't sell a Fiero anymore?--the weird-idea ST will never launch.
