19: Pontiac GTO
Released shortly on the heels of the F-Body’s demise during the early 2000s, the GTO was a departure for the Pontiac brand in a lot of ways. This car might have been ahead of its time because during release it was panned for its size. But nowadays sports cars like the Dodge Challenger are equally as large and selling well. While the design might have been a bit bland at the time, you can’t go wrong with LS2 and LS3 power. Standard features like the factory Borla exhaust were welcome additions.
The Pontiac GTO had a relatively short run when you compare it to other sports cars on the market. But, for the features and the price tag you can’t go wrong. The GTO is one of the last real V8 powered Pontiac models to be on the market. The design of the car was critically panned but the performance was something that still stands strong to this day.
