    Why is everyone so appalled by 280 horsepower? Has anyone driven a high-powered front-wheel drive vehicle? I'm guessing not. First of all, the target audience doesn't want a car that can do 0-60 in 2 seconds flat. They want something to move their family and still look sporty... And 280 horsepower is MORE then sufficient to complete those tasks. Secondly, if GM ever intended for this car to be 'super-fast' they would not have chosen a front-wheel drive powertrain. Of course LSD or reducing the steering response help, but at increased costs or loss of handling. Then you have to deal with the weight shifting during accelleration... My girlfriend's 140 horsepower Grand Am can break the tires loose if you gun it off the line... Remember [Power - Traction = Nothing].<!-- Signature -->

    Yeah, this isn't trying to compete with the M5 or Audi SR6, but what i think most people don't like it its extremely aggresive and powerful look , yet it just doesn't have the power. I drive a Maxima, with 222 and it hauls for a family car under 26,000. 0-60 in under 7 seconds its a great car. This car would be around there, a bit faster, so its all around a good car, just a bit deceiving.

    Let's put it this way. If it can beat a Civic with an oversized wing, 47 aftermarket companies stickers and a bazooka muffler, it's not a bad thing, it's a good thing. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    Pontiac Roolz!!

    I know.
    Front Wheel Drive supercar is very hard to handle.
    I've driven a modified GP with 325HP.
    handling was insane when it comes to cornering.
    tap brakes...13" Brembo's =P
    slide car sideways...
    stamp on gas =P

    have to drift drive..or else..you're screwed =P

    lol, do you think that all cars with 4 exhaust pipes & big tires have 500+HP? corvette has 4, and it pushes 400HP....believe me when i say if pontiac ever reaches 500HP, it wont be in a grand prix

    I like this car. I love Grand Prix GT's and GTP's. A friend of mine has a Grand Prix Datona Edition. It is a KICK-ASS car. 240hp is more than enough to sit you back into the bucket seats! I love it! <!-- Signature -->
