I have never seen a commercial with a GTO in it before. I was watching the NASCAR Qualifying on the speed channel and I saw it! It still wasn't a commercial with JUST the GTO though, it also had the Grand Prix GTP. If I was Pontiac's ad department, I think I'd want that advertised.

Back in 04' when the first one came out there was a commercial for it. A few actually, they were just hype commercials, then one where it was waiting at a red light, idling, a couple talking about it's motor, RWD, and dual exhaust...

As far as the 05, yeah just that one.

I guess I don't remember the older ones. It's such a great car, it just seems to me that GM would want to get the word out there just how awesome they ARE!

I cant understand how GM took no initiative to advertise this car on a steady basis. Then it gets discontinued. What did they expect ? Why would production be continued when sales were in the toilet for this model compared to the other vehicles that are advertised.....sorry, I'm ranting again.

ssshhhh


it's a limited edition and I don't own mine yet!!!


gimme a couple months then we can complain.


I guess in a way it's good they didn't advertise it because now we own sleepers. Most people don't even know there is a new GTO out there and just think... hey, they made the grand am a 2 door...

LS1 forum has all of them including the Engine commercial, Car comm (building), Yellow GTO on salt flats and one or two more. All are narrated by Samual L. Jackson.

There was a tv show commercial on the other night that I thought had an '04 GTO in it. It was on CBS, during Ghost Whisperer, or the show after. Had the black guy in it that played the president on 24 last year. Anyhow, new show coming on CBS, and for a moment, I thought I saw a puddy tat, er, I mean a GTO!

10 seconds? It was more like 5 seconds and to me the shots weren't that great on the car...I wish they showed the GTO more....

Yeah gm has a major, major problem with advertising. Some of you may know, but the ssr plant is also closing down. I have own one, its in the garage. I love it!!! They (gm) always complained about how bad the ssr sales where. The problem is they never ever advertised it. I would talk to people and they would think it was some $100,000 super car, cause they never saw them anywhere. Sad, the gto and the ssr would still be in production if not for lack of great advertising.

I just saw ANOTHER GTO commercial!! This one was COOL. There were blue flames throughout the commercial. It even has a quote from one of those magazines that hate the GTO!
Those black GTOs are so incredibly sweet-looking when they're clean. I just hate trying to keep a black car clean.
It's about dang time that GM started advertising the GTO by itself!!!

They never intended to sell that many. They were limited to 18,000 or less each year due to import restrictions.

Cool commercial!! I saw it last week and posted on LS1.com. Here is the narrative for those who missed it!

"3 years ago we introduced the most powerful GTO ever. With 400 horsepower it starts at a price the competition can't touch." "Car and Driver calls it, an incredibly gratifying car!" Find yours at Pontiac.com/GTO.

I think it was a 30 second spot? The PBM/Red A4 looked good in the commercial :cool .
