Louisville native talks about designing the Pontiac GTO

David A. Mann, Reporter Louisville Business First


Bill Porter, former designer at GM,

If someone asked you to describe the 1968 Pontiac GTO in one word, how would you do it?

Sporty? Slick, maybe?

After the conversation I had on Monday with Bill Porter, the artist who designed this iconic car, I suppose I would use the word "speedy" to describe it. Porter, 84, told me about how speedy things — jets and trains — inspired him as a child.
He grew up in Louisville and remembers watching stories about the air war that was part of World War II. A lot of kids at the time were fascinated by stories of pilots and airplanes, he told me.

"Pilots were neat," he said. He decorated his childhood bedroom, which was located in the Highlands neighborhood, with black cutouts of airplanes. He also spent his leisure time building model airplanes in his youth — something that again reflected that speedy design he appreciated.

2004-2006 GTO: GTOAA Concours Announcement
Jul 15, 2015 - 9:38 AM - by GTO JUDGE
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR OUR NEW GEN GTO OWNERS;



The GTOAA is happy to announce beginning in 2019 we will be adding a concours judging class for 2004-2006 GTOs! Classes will be for: Original, Restored, and Modified. Award Standards: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The standards will be based on a point system and be judged by authorized GTOAA Concours Judges just as our vintage GTOs.

This has been a work in progress for many years. All necessary documentation has been collected as we prepare to introduce our New Gen GTO Concours class at our 2019 GTOAA International Convention at a site yet to be determined. This announcement at this time will allow those interested in having their 04-06 GTOs entered into concours time to prepare for our inaugural new gen GTO concours addition.

What does this mean for you, an owner of a new gen GTO? Having a Concours Gold attached to your GTO will identify your GTO among the best of the best and could add value to your car.
