    This is the next generation GTO based on the G8. Maybe these aren't the best times for performance cars like the GTO, but i'm sure it could breathe some life into the dying brand.

    I just bought a G8 and it doesn't resemble anything of that.

    I haven't meant the design, by saying based on it, i had in mind the platform, engines and etc.. I took some inspiration (especially for the side view) from the Holden Coupe 60 concept which is similar to the VE Commodore aka G8.

    The hood is similar enough, but i don't see any similarities between the headlights, the windshield may looks similar on most of the cars including this one, but the GTO's roof is a lot rounder than the 300's, and it changes the shape of the window.

    Looks good; A lot of retro going on, but by no means is that a bad thing. I do really like your idea for the headlight and grille treatment.
