Following the discontinuation of the fourth generation Holden-based Pontiac GTO, GM imported another rebadged Holden again in 2008. This time however, Pontiac decided to target the performance sedan market with a Holden Commodore based car known in North America as the Pontiac G8. The G8 was Pontiac’s first rear-wheel-drive full-size sedan since 1986. The G8 had an optional 6.0L V8, and in 2009 a GXP version of the G8 was offered with a 415 horsepower 6.2L LS3 V8 engine. Sadly, a down turn in the global economy hurt sales of the G8 and as with the GM bail-out, came the discontinuation of the Pontiac make as a whole.
As the health of General Motors recovered, so has its interest in producing performance rear wheel drive cars. The Chevy Camaro made a triumphant return in 2010 and for 2014, Chevrolet introduced the SS model. Slotted in size between the Chevy Malibu and Chevy Impala, the Holden VF Commodore based Chevrolet SS is the first rear-wheel drive Chevy sedan since 1996. The 2014 Chevy SS is powered by a 6.2L V8 derived from the Chevrolet Corvette and the 2009 Pontiac G8.
Owners of 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 6.0L or 6.2L models, as well as the 2014 Chevrolet SS 6.2L V8, tend to be performance minded individuals who must also please their practical side. Hence, the reason why they bought a V8 powered performance car with four doors and comfortable seating for 5. Buying a performance air intake system upgrade from Spectre Performance is kind of like that too.
