Motor Trend is now reporting that the high-volume Alpha model will instead be a Chevrolet sedan. Given that Pontiac is supposed to be more of a performance brand with the Solstice and upcoming G8, this move doesn't really make sense if it's in fact true. Chevy already has what appears to be a winner with the new Malibu, and a smaller rear-wheel-drive sedan seems at odds with the brand's current ethos of mainstream, family friendly, versatile and affordable vehicles. We suspect a group of vocal bean counters convinced someone that more Alpha-based sedans would be sold in the U.S. if they wore a bow tie, and perhaps that's true, but if GM really wants a coherent brand strategy among its many marques, then the Alpha should be a Pontiac.


you guys are going to eat your heart outs if you loved the GTO because guess who is making it for you guys!

looks too big. someone needs to make a 2400LB RWD car with about 175HP. then ill be happy.

the last gen MR2 was about 2300Lbs only, just needed more power, the Celica was 2500LBS 180HP but FWD, i dont see why it cant be done.

pretty nice. Maybe Ford will catch on and bring their European counterparts stateside.
