With Pontiac going the way of Oldsmobile, the G8 GXP is already an endangered species. GM ran a fire sale on Pontiacs for the first few days of July, and we can probably expect additional discounts. The GXP can gallop from zero to 60 miles per hour in just over five seconds using a version of the Corvette's 6.2-liter V-8. In the GXP, that power plant delivers 402 horsepower and 402 pound-feet of torque. Transmission is either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual.
