2010 Pontiac G8 ST Likely DOA
PickupTrucks.com is reporting that Pontiac’s planned sport truck, the G8 ST, based on the G8 sedan, has been killed; it will not go on sale this year as originally planned, and it seems unlikely it will ever go on sale in the U.S.
An enthusiast and journalist favorite, it’s likely the ST would sell less than the sedan version, which isn’t exactly a top-seller. Last month, the G8 sedan sold 1,479 units. That’s more than the new Hyundai Genesis’ 1,040, but far less than the Dodge Charger’s 5,414 units, which was down 51% from the same month in 2007.
We’re still waiting on official confirmation from GM, but Mike Levine, editor of PickupTrucks.com, is reporting the news from reliable sources.
