The SUV that made a name for itself for being one of the most intimidating of any vehicle on the road is going out in a whimper. The last Hummer H3 - and the very last Hummer for that matter - rolled out of General Motors’ production facility in Shreveport, Louisiana last Monday, culminating the official end of one of America’s most iconic SUVs.

The last H3 was ordered by rental car agency Avis, which if we were these guys, we actually won’t rent out because of the "history" attached to it for being the very last Hummer ever built. Who knows, the SUV might fetch a pretty good price in the coming years.

Whatever Avis does with it though, is their business. More important to us is Hummer’s quiet curtain call. The irony is definitely intoxicating.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Very sad to know that, because unfortunately hummer becomes the best and itimitating vehicles of every people in the world so its really sad to know that hummer officially shuts down.

I agree. Chinese is willing to buy the GM Hummer but they didn’t accept their offer.. and now the hummer project is at end.

Well GM should accept the Chinese offer of buying the Hummer to save the legend of the HUMMER.
