2008 Pontiac G8 GT Test Drive: Poncho Gets Its V8 Muscle-Car Mojo Back - Popular Mechanics
"It’s been over 20 years since GM’s excitement division, Pontiac, last offered a rear-drive sedan with a V8. And it’s been even longer since any Poncho with more than two doors was truly exciting to drive. Instead we’ve had two solid decades of front-wheel-drive sedans and V6 power—and a handful of years with one rather uninspired, front-drive, V8-powered Grand Prix GXP. It’s hardly been the stuff of our muscle car dreams.
Well thanks to the all-new G8, Pontiac appears to have its mojo back."
