intersting thing is that curb weight is almost the same,but having driven the 360 hp g8 there is no comparison to 05/06 gto in 0 to 60 times,or 0 to 100,ls2 gto is quicker,should be interesting to see performance numbers of 411 hp gxp

No offense, Gene, but I can't see you in a G8. I like the car, but, as long as I've known you, I just can't see it. Keep the goat.

I'm trying to convince my mother to get the G8. She doesn't want anything with 4 doors...neither would I but this car is an exception. Very sharp looking car to say the least. She saw one parked today and told me how good it looked, minus the 2 extra doors of course. Hey maybe we're inching closer and closer. I did mention to her about that 2 door concept that may be heading our way from Holden.

She wants either the G8 (2 door when available) or the 2 door Infiniti...whatever it's called.

you can get a 2 door G8 LOL.
I plan on getting a G8 GXP shortly after I graduate.
4doors, LS3, M6, sounds like a good DD.
