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

Torque @ RPM

Brakes (Front)
Disc
Brakes (Rear)

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.

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!
