The 2008–2009 Pontiac G8 GXP remains one of my favorite American cars ever built.
Of course, we all know that once General Motors finally hit a home run with the Pontiac brand, it promptly pushed the self-destruct button, and Pontiac exploded into oblivion. Built with some of the best pieces in the GM parts bin, the G8 GXP had the Corvette‘s 6.2-liter, 402-horsepower LS3 V8 under the hood and none of the plastic body cladding glued on to nearly all other Pontiacs in modern history.
Not like we need another high-powered V8 vehicle roaring over American roads, but one like the G8 would be most welcome.
Enter the 2014 Chevrolet SS.
