    Pontiac Rev GTP (Caliber competitor)

    Pontiac needs a decent sunfire replacement. Period. Something for themselved too, not just a Cobalt trying to pass itself off as a Pontiac. So, I've taken the cue from the Caliber to turn the Sunfire into a small, sporty wagon. A quick sketch done during sociology yes, but you get the idea.
    Hope you like!

    it DOES get a replacement for the Pontiac Coba...err, G5 (eyeroll its uglier too) in the 2008 MCE update if memory serves me correctly...if not then, then when Delta 2 comes out and the cobalt gets redesigned in like 2012 or something. Chill it out, chillax man, Pontia was L-U-C-K-Y and lied to the american public about getting a small car. they were lucky to get a delta and told the public they were NOT going to use the cobalt as the insert grille here design, and thats exactly what they did...erg!

    Nice design, but basically you created a Suzuki XL-7 front on an Opel Astra Hatch (which is going to be the Saturn Astra in a year or two or three).

    I like your idea, and that was a good drawing, much much better than I could ever do, but its not going to happen, sorry. (This thread reminds me of Duspinnists comments, again! LOL )

    Think smaller. The Caliber competes with teensy little econo cars, yet gives of a vibe (heh) of a bigger car. That's what this'll do. Bridge the gap bewtween small sedan and aveo-size cars. Think cobalt wagon only aveo sized...you get it. Two birds with one stone. =)

    I'd love to see GM replace the Vibe instead of collaborating with Toyota. It's high time to end that.

    I like the design, and the idea. Something that's Caliber sized, but looks better, like the European Civic.

    I say that's the next gen Vibe, not a SF replacement. None the less, looks good! And, like always, great quality!

    Love the Idea, Really like the Design. now, CobaltSScrazy, why would you go and **************** on his idea like that? This is just the "show off your designs" forum, not a "come up with a new business strategy for GM" forum......

    -> and to those calling a Vibe a sporty vehicle, I've got news for you.....

    The Vibe is a piece of *insert expletive*.

    Again firebird, I think you did a great job, I also really like the stance that it has, it does tend to ooze sport, unlike the cobal.... cough, erm, G5.
