    it looks...interesting....kinda like a crossover sedan. Very cool just a bit unorthodox, maybe lower it a touch and give it lower profile tires...then you'd ahve a real CMG 300 competitor

    Hmm... NIce. Looks like it's ready to give the Magnum a run for its money. I just hope Pontiac wouldn't fall into the alpha-numeric naming game. It's caused some confusion already in the automotive world.

    The mirrors look mismatched though.

    nice use of the GTO wheels. I dont like the waterfall Linc/Buck grill at all! Gotta be honeycomb if its a Pontiac. It doesnt look very Pontiac-like. Too much Magnum in it also. Looks a lot like the Insignia from Opel and its Buick kissing cousin, the Velite. Lower it, add some more smooth cruves and more agressive, more areodymanic nose.

    Reminds me too much of the Aztec. Future Pontiacs should look more like the G6 and Grand Prix and less like the Aztec and Bonneville SSEi.

    i like V2.0; your design makes a better sedan than hatch/wagon. i don't really see any aztek in it. doesn't look like a current pontiac, but who said it has to? it's pretty slick!

    v2.0 is better, but I think it needs to be less 300C in size. I do like the heritage Vertical headlights but maybe something more like the STS's headlights. Also, a sharper nose and have a more aerodynamic nose to it. big blunt noses like on the 300, reminds people of high end like Bently and Rolls. A Pontiac sedan needs to be a lot more agressive. Maybe add more Bonnie with a touch of G6 in it?

    Original was a Rover:



    I don't see any Aztek in my design. I can see why the like/dislike factor is there. It's a different direction for Pontiac.
