I have owned everything from a 1945 Willy's to a 600 hp Super Late Model Stock Car, and when it came time to buy a four-door American (Ok,Australian GM) car with a real trunk, big back seat, rear-wheel drive and enough HP to make it entertaining, the list was short, but the choice clear: A G8 GT. For the money, you can't beat this car. Build quality is excellent as the Australians don't tolerate bad cars. Interior plastics could be better, but hey, it's $40,000 cheaper than an M5 and nearly as fast. It sits on the road beautifully and drives much "smaller" than it is. Excellent power and amenities, plus you can put 5 people in with luggage with no issues. I regularly get 20+ mpg, and 360+ hp with that unmistakable American V8 growl makes this one fun car to drive. Highly recommended, and hard to touch performance and value for the price. Yes, they only made it for two years, but Chevy has a future for this car, so parts will be around for a long time.
Though its tenure was short-lived and it was only available in the US for a single model year, the Pontiac G8 is still largely considered one of the best American sedans produced in recent history. The G8 was first developed and produced in Australia, where it was known as the Holden Commodore. It was rebadged for the North American market in 2008, where it replaced the Pontiac Bonneville.
Since their inception, muscle cars have transformed ordinary drives into adventures. Their beefy V8 engines, impressive performance characteristics, and aggressive stances make enthusiastic owners think up new reasons to grab their keys and take their next drive. If you want to reignite your passion for driving and experience the best muscle car the world currently has to offer, you’ll need to wade through the abundant options. Of all your four-wheeled options, the Pontiac G8 and Dodge Charger are worth a place at the top of your search list.
