2007 Pontiac G6 GXP

Seeking to build on the 25-percent retail sales gain by the G6 so far this year, Pontiac is revealing a new G6 GXP coupe show car at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. Designed to augment the G6’s sleek styling with a more aggressive appearance and stance, the new GXP show car will test both media and public reaction before any final decision on production is made.

Although the GXP performance series has been very successful in the past, we’ve never attempted to introduce a GXP on our largest volume vehicle and we want to be sure we do it right,” said Dennis Maraone, Pontiac product director. “We believe the package of exterior, interior and performance enhancements we’ve put together on the G6 GXP show car should appeal to 2+2 coupe enthusiasts.

Features

Highlighting the exterior styling changes is a redesigned front fascia, featuring an integrated lower air dam and an aggressive chrome treatment of Pontiac’s signature twin-port grille, as well as a twin air scoop hood. Around back, the new rear fascia shows off the dual chrome-tipped exhaust and unique “hammerhead” spoiler. Side rocker panels, 19-inch wheels, vented cross-drilled brake rotors, and a 25-mm reduction in suspension height finish off the GXP’s ground-hugging appearance.

Inside, red accents give the GXP a sportier flavor than a standard G6. The red chrome trim on the instrument cluster, center stack and door controls augments the red leather seat and door panel inserts.

Under the hood, the Pontiac G6 GXP uses a modified 3.9-liter V-6 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Linking a ram air induction system with K&N air filter to a cat-back free flowing exhaust helps boost engine output to 270 horsepower (202 kw) and 259 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm).

The GXP performance series was introduced in 2003 with the Bonneville GXP. The Grand Prix GXP joined the line in 2005 and currently accounts for 30 percent of all Grand Prix retail sales. The Solstice GXP launches this fall.

I have the 06 G6 GT and I love it! I would really love to get my hands on this car... 07 G6 GXP only if the 3.9 V6 could produce close to 300 hp and a 7 or 8 speed manual transmission, but would settle for a automatic. Also, improve the sound system (THX or 10 speaker sound system), bluetooth enabled, use Bridgestone tires instead of Goodyear as the OEM tire. Heads-up-display with HID headlamps and LED tail lights. Larger exhaust with larger rotors and 4 pistons calipers (the Grand Ams were bad on brakes... I had a ’99 Grand Am GT before the G6). I have more ideas, but with my current suggestions, I believe I just drove the price over the 30K mark!?!

I currently own a oo Grand AM GT. I’m wanting to by a new car sometime soon within the next year so I’ve been looking into the current G6s, and then I saw this GXP G6 concept and fell in love with it. I really hope you guys put this out into production soon.

i would like to know when pontiac is going to start make this model of car and the price im getting ready to buy a new car in the next 3 months and would like information on this car thanks

Wow! I saw a picture of this car and HAD to find out more. I only wish that the plain G6 looked THIS great. My opinion: GM would be wise to make this a production model...with a starting price of NO more than $23,000. My best friend loves modifications, and normally I’m passive about them; HOWEVER...this would look AMAZING with them!!! This could be Pontiac’s push to the top. And it’s WAY nicer than Solara

I love the styling on this concept car, and I’m glad to see that it is not completely lacking in the area of power. Next, lets talk pricing and I might be sold! smiley

for me this car looks great i just want to know the price someone knows?
