#19, The problem is, though, the GTO didn't look like the mundane base-level Pontiacs of today. It looked like the mundane, base-level Pontiacs from 10 years ago. Keep in mind as well, we're also dealing with a much more competitive market today. Automakers rely heavily on styling today to set themselves apart from the twenty or thirty new cookie-cutter sedans that are released every year.

I like the newer GTOs, and I would really like to have one. I find the styling of them to be adequate, if a bit uninspired. But I think the fact that they didn't stand out just didn't catch the eye of the modern carbuyer.

Oh yeah, and on a related note, today I saw a woman get into one of these at work. Yes that's right a woman.

Edit: I meant GTO

#21, The Holden Monaro did just fine looking the way it did. Like I said, GM wasn't going to throw a lot of money into the development of the GTO unless it was a surefire thing. It was really a gamble. So the took the Monaro, and gave it a Pontiac grille. I really think they should have given it another name. Calling it the Le Mans or the Tempest would have worked out well for the Monaro, I think.

#23, "Tempest" is a name they should think about bringing back. It's a pretty good name for a car.

#9, The ES does not compete with the Lucerne or vice versa.

#28, So when did an entry-level luxury car compete with a full-size luxury car?

I mean - I could go into technical differences and prices.

#29, I don't know which you consider to be entry level, both of them are pretty plush.

#30, I dunno. Just that one is a Camry and the other is a warmed over mk2 G.

Plus - Lexus's nomenclature says that "A" is low-end and "Z" is upscale. The ES is the "lowest" in Lexus's range and therefore Lexus's entry level car. The Lacrosse is (awkwardly enough) Buick's entry level car, not the Lucerne, based on physical dimensions and engine choices.

#29, I'm really not going to argue about something so retarded as wether or not the Lucerne and the ES compete. GM officials themselves have stated that they wish to become the American Lexus.

The Lacrosse is nowhere near the ES. Sizewise maybe, but that's it.
