    Since this is my first chop ever, cut me a little slack.

    Introducing, the Pontiac G4
    MSRP $12,849

    2.0L I4
    5 Speed Manual
    Horsepower @ RPM
    [email protected]
    Torque @ RPM
    [email protected]
    Brakes (Front)
    Disc
    Brakes (Rear)
    Disc

    My intent was to change as little as possible with the Daewoo Nubira / Chevrolet Optra (countries that use the tri-grille) / Suzuki Forenza grille.

    The bumper would need to be original, though.

    Not bad for a first chop, but it needs to have a more distinctive Pontiac grill like in the G6, GTO, and GP. Now that I think about it, the Optra would make a decent G4 if it had a turbocharger and 16" 5-spoke wheels.

    2007 BMW 328i. Black sapphire metallic. Terra leather. Poplar wood. Automatic trans. Xenon adaptive headlights. BMW Assist. Bluetooth. Premium package. Heated seats. iDrive navigation system. Rear sonar. Comfort access. LOGIC7 surround sound. Sirius. 18" BMW wheels. Rear spoiler.

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury. Black onyx pearl. Beige leather. 4WD. Chrome hood vents, mirror covers, exhaust. Silver grille, taillight trim. Brushed metal bumper protector. Running boards.

    Thanks - the turbo would have to be optional, of course - the Optra being the car you buy when you don't have money for a Vibe, G6, etc.

    Wonder if there is still potential for a car like this.

    Pontiacs "sport compact" lineup is looking awfully weak recently.

    I think Pontiac should bring over the Astra GTC. That would truly stay in line with Pontiac's performance aspirations, yet still provide a reasonably affordable competitor to the Civic and Corolla etc.

    Good looking first chop!
