Has anyone seen a 2006 GTO in person yet ? Has anyone Ordered a 2006 or should I say is Pontiac accepting orders yet ? With the travel/dock times what they are , the delay must put the 2006 into Nov/Dec timeframe ... But I see pictures are out so maybe someone has ordered one ... Still not reading/hearing any true prices yet .?.

My dealer told me that someone ordered an 06'. I was told he was advised to do so if he wanted it by Spring of 06'. I was also told my local dealership ordered a Gray one. I told them that I thought that Gray was eliminated for 06' and was told no because they had already ordered it.

I am holding out to see what this "somewhat retro looking possible Judge" is going to look like. I am on the list for that one. Whether it's 07' or 08', I'll hold out. Providing of course it doesn't look like that concept one I saw, and is worth trading my 05' for.

Calm down, productions on the 06's haven't even started yet, and won't start until the end of this month. They will be here at dealerships by the end of Dec.

Don't worry about the being enough 06 goats either. Demand on the current 05 gto's still aren't quite "Gay New Stang" high, and I don't think the 06's will be too different. So you should be able to find them when they come out.

Don't get too excited about the Judge yet. The next gen of GTO's haven't even been completely confirmed yet, much less whether something like The Judge will be produced or not. Just go with the flow and wait for the info to come in ;)

Australia's production schedule is different than ours. Production of the 06' will not start till November. They will dedicate full production to GTO's and will close the line about halfway through the Australian cycle, which means May. The fist 06's should hit here about mid to late January, unless they get held up at the dock, or more trains crash.

Then I quess the photo link in the original post is a photoshop alteration or a new rear tail-light setup added to an 05 ... Haven't seen those available for sale yet , maybe the seat movement motor can also be purchased .
Take a look at the license plate, it's a manufacturers plate. They have 2006 spec GTO's at the proving ground to do testing. That is what we are looking at. 2005 production in OZ does not stop till November. Dealers will still be getting 2005 GTO's until October.

Testing , what is there to test on the 2006 ? whatever ... The 06's will arrive after Hurricane Season ends and then maybe someone will join us and enlighten us on the changes and costs. Until they end production of the 05's anything we read about the 06's is up for revision but I quess Pontiac will accept orders now... :)

I hope if they make a Judge, it's supercharged so that y'all will quit bitching about '03-'04 Cobras. :lol: Just razzing you guys.











But still, man! That would have to be at least 500 horse! :eek:

....

A Judge.... that has a S/C....

You realize that the 03-04 Cobra's would then become the equivalent of a Civic to that goat. Even the new Shelby's would be very scared. God I would buy that car the second I have a chance to.

Cobra's never really scared me as it was. I beat every Cobra I had ever challenged in my goat. Then again I'm rather sure I never ran into any with a whipple and such either... which would have definately tilted the odds in their favor.

Thanks! Glad to be here. I went with Phantom Black/Red. I have a 96 T/A WS6 that is black and love the color. I ordered an A4 with the 18" wheels. I got it through a friend who does alot of fleet purchases through GM. Price is invoice minus $200. Now I'm just waiting for my Christmas present to myself!

No it was not at the track, so for all I know it was a bunch of rich spoiled brats whose father's bought them a cobra, and they don't know how to drive it for ****.

The Orlando area seems to have a heavy number of Cobra's. If I look I can usually find at least one a day.

Doubt it, they drove and sounded like Cobra's. They could have been GT's with just Cobra badging and heavy mods, but I wouldn't think so.

Come on down to Orlando anytime :D

Most of the Cobra's here seem to be white, or that Candy-Apple Red color though, it's weird.
