You are in the Pontiac GTO
What is this discussion about?
Pontiac GTO, Coupe
Apr 06, 2005 (4:03 pm)
I meant to say that the 2006 Corvette Z06 will have dry-sump lubrication. That LS7 is awesome!
The Pontiac GTO is scheduled to debut in Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen race on June 12 in the Grand American Rolex Sports car series so it would race against Porsche GT3 Cup cars
Here is the 2005 GTO which has larger brakes, 400 hp LS2, a new power steering pump, and some other stuff.

Aren't those 04 tail lights on that "05" doing a burnout?

When does the 2006 model of the GTO come out? Have they released anything? price? pictures? specs?

To my knowledge taillamps haven't changed between '04 and '05.

When does the 2006 model of the GTO come out?
In late December. GM has had such great sales success in December/ thinks it's such a great idea to introduce a RWD sports coupe to the whole country at the start of wintertime, when 50% of the people really don't want to be driving a RWD car with poor stock tires.
Have they released anything? price? pictures? specs?
Nope. Don't expect to see that info until August or so. Holden will build the '05 until sometime in June (I believe the order cutoff has passed - you can't order a new '05 any longer). They'll start building '06's in July and be done by December, as the plant converts over to build Zeta-based RWD vehicles that we won't see here in the U.S. (except for maybe a big Holden Statesman rebadged as a Buick). I wouldn't expect to see much different on the outside. Inside they may add some of the "creature comfort" features the Aussies get, but that's probably about it (maybe a slight HP boost - rumor has it the 2006 CTS-V will get a 415 hp LS2). Pricing will probably go up, seeing as how they'll probably only make 10-12k 2006's before the line is done...

Sales of the new GTO, while not what they were expected to be, have improved since the car went on sale. The new Mustang, available with a V-6, a V-8, coupe, or convertible has obviously outsold the new GTO, only available with a V-8 and coupe body.
1,375 GTOs were sold last month vs 719 the same month last year, an 84.2 % improvement. 3,261 GTOs have been sold year-to-date vs. 1,801 of a year ago, an 81.1 % improvement.

I also was surprised when I saw the GTO sales data. So many posters are giving the impression that GTO sales are in the tank.
Notice post #2681 - no mention made of the sales increases. Just 'not a bad month' and 'how many were 04 models at $6k off MSRP'.
+ 81.1% - that is impressive on any company's sales ledger!

Sorry, have to throw the BS flag.
First of all, the convertible stang has not gone on sale yet. Second, while GTO sales have improved over last year (when they were terrible until September), don't get carried away with GM's big percentage increases. A significant (30%?) number of sales during '05 have been leftover '04s. There are still hundreds of '04s for sale right now.
Comparing new '04 to new '05 sales for March they sold about 35% more cars not 84%. That among other reasons is why this car is dead after '06.
