With a sticker price expected to be over $30,000 the new GTO will break one of the first tenets of the original 1964 GTO - high performance but at a budget price. Back then a loaded GTO with 348 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque would have set you back around $3,000. That's only about $18,000 today, adjusted for inflation. Unfortunately, the new GTO's price tag doesn't fall within the range of somebody looking for entry level high performance. It's going to appeal to affluent, older car enthusiasts, likely to be in their late thirties to early sixties who can afford it - pretty much the same guys who bought a GTO the first time around and want to relive their youth, but this time with a little luxury."


Funny how it looks like this car called the Holden Monaro, which has been in production since the 60's.. So its got a V8 and it's rear wheel drive.. Does that make it a GTO? No, it makes it a Holden Monaro that they shipped to America to sell to people who will buy something on name recognition. It may be a nice car, but if they brought it over and called it the Pontiac Monaro, do you think they'd sell any? Tell me what this car has in common with the GTO name other than the amount of cylinders and the drivetrain.

thats true. This car is suppose to replace the firebird but its not happenin. firebird had a long great history and they should have continued it. i was just commenting on how the new GTO isnt a v6 civic.

Yeah I mean don't get me wrong, I'm sure it will be nice, and fast, but they are kinda lame to call it a GTO hehe.

This however is the new hotness:

The above WRX is a 'real' WRX.. It's the new STi version for the US. 2.5 liter turbo, 300hp / 300ft/lbs of torque. Driver controlled center differential for the AWD, incidentally it has more power than the JDM version as far as I know.

I haven't been paying attention to the thread, but lemme say this. The 2005 Mustang looks like it has fetal alcohol syndrome. I mean, I admit my WRX has bug-eyes, but that thing is butt-ugly IMHO.

Thanks for the bump on the MY04 USDM Impreza WRX STi BS :)

To set the record straight, though -- the Subaru Impreza Rally Car (WRC) is not a production model anywhere in the world. The closest 'normal' model has always been the WRX STi. Everywhere except the united states have been recieving STi models yearly, and this is our first crack at it. It IS more powerful than the JDM model, but they cannot change the displacement other places in the world because they would have to make limited runs of lower-displacement cars. WRC rules state that the production model of the car must match the engine displacement of the WRC entry car, which can have an engine displacement of no greater than 2.2l. The two production model imprezas that are closer, but still NOT, the WRC are the Impreza P1 manufactured by Prodrive for FHI, and the Impreza 22B, manufactured by Subaru Tecnica International for FHI. These were both strictly limited edition cars, and are only available RHD.
