4-door Muscle Sedan ?

Discussion in '2004 Pontiac GTO' started by Lee Iacocca, Sep 21, 2002.

  1. After Mazda 4-door "Sport Car"....the RX-8....

    Are Pontiac planning to call it a 4-door Muscle Sedan Car ?


    Chek official Pontiac website.
     
  2. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    call what a muscle sedan??
     
  3. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    As I said before....

    Check official pontiac website. It will be a 4-door sedan...
     
  4. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    Just to correct you on a little mis-information that you seem to posess about the mustang, it was born a 200ci. I-6, thereby making it not born an American V-8...
     
  5. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    No its not going to be a sedan, it is going to be a coupe. Alot of coupes have 4 seats ya know. Thats what the 2+2 is all about.
     
  6. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    Just to correct you (LOL) the 200 ci I-6 belongs to the 1965. the 1964 I-6 engine was 170ci. BUT V8 were optional engines since 1964.

    So, they were 'there' since Mustang's first year.

    You're luck.

    You can check MOTORTREND this month (october) for info about the 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang.

    1964 1/2 engines:

    170 cid I6
    260 cid V8 (optional)
    289 cid V8 (optional)

    1965-66 engines:

    200 cid I6
    289 cid V8 (optional)


    MOTORTREND, october 2002, page 146.

    thanks anyway.

    New Pontiac GTO = Holden Monaro

    Holden Monaro = coupe (2 door)

    Monaro = 2 door version of commodore

    Commodore = Sedan (4 doors)

    The Pontiac GTO is based on the Holden Monaro but will be more powerful and have a different body kit. The Holden Monaro is a 2 door coupe. Im looking at the press release at www.pontiac.com and it doesnt say anything about it being a 4 door sedan, it actually says its a coupe
     
  10. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    Lido think about it, the original GTO's had two doors, the new Monaro that the GTO is based on has two doors, and if they were going to make it a four door, then why import Monaros and waste money putting two doors on them (by the way, you cant even fit another two doors on the body shell) when they could just import a Holden Commodore and call it a GTO?

    By the way, I've look on the Pontiac web site and I can't find anything to suggest that it might be a four door sedan, so if you wouldn't mind giving a few directions please.

    They are about $55,000 in Australia and based on the currency they should be about US$30,000
     
  15. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    the Pontiac G-Force does not equal the Pontiac GTO

    g-force is 4 door
    gto is not
     
  16. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    yes it is a coupe based on a sedan - trust me i'm aussie, and u yanks have fuct up the front something cronic.
     
  17. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    The front of the Monaro and HSV coupes are a lot better than the front of this

    ??

    Excuse me but, please, read this.

    When this thread was posted, PONTIAC was showing a 4-door sedan and calling it PONTIAC GTO.

    It's not my fault if you were not checking PONTIAC website at that time.

    PONTIAC have the right to show pics and change the car anytime since its not being sold, yet.

    Who knows if they not planning to sell them in 2 versions ? (2 and 4 door) Like BMW M5. This car will be in BMW M5 category and not in Mustang category.

    Anyway, only the time will tell.





    I'm really surprised to see "experts" that NEVER checked the PONTIAC website at that time, talking trash about me, now.

  22. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    I can gaurentee you that the GTO will be a 2 door coupe only because thats what a Monaro is. The 4 door commodores may be sold as impalas in the future but not as a GTO
     
  23. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    1. What if they're very suscesful on on sales ??

    2. Since BMW M5, the big rival in US (luxury AND sport) is avaliable in 2 and 4 doors (and a convertible version, too)

    3. Since they're "bringing" to US the same "machines" that Holden is using to build the Monaro and these can be used to build parts of (if not all) the Commodore..

    3. Since the BODY is already tested and its suscessful with 4 doors in Australia...


    Why not make them in two versions (as in Australia) ? Like BMW M5 ?



    Forget Camaro, Firebird and Mustang !!!. GM isn't looking for low sales... Muscle car aren't good to sell today.

    They're looking for BMW... BMW market share is growing up year after year...

    And it's a luxury AND sport sedan, it never was a muscle car.



    Excuse me. but you can't "bring" any garantees from GM... Even GM don't know what to do, yet. Market sales will tell.
     
  24. Re: 4-door Muscle Sedan ?

    yep, its definately a 2 door, but as lido said he saw a thing that said 4dr and now that its corrected (it aint there any more), then i hope s/he now sees that it is a 2 door...

    oh and yeah the US are rumoured to be in line for the commodore 4dr(proabably badged as something else) and also the commodore ute (possible badge 'el camino' or some such) which is my favourite two door!!!! it rocks, and america has nothing like it from what i can find on the net... tell me if i'm wrong, you're looking for a two door pick-up (us talk for ute), that is based on a sedan, handles better than the sedan, carries near a tonne of shit in the back, weights around 1600kg (3500 pounds, i think that is right, this is important too, too fat = too slow) and has at least a 235kW (315HP), 0-100km/h in around 6sec (base spec V8), if you can keep the wheels from spinning, oh and it has to cost under AU$40,000!!!! so about US$25k, have fun... (i while, once i get one)
