24. 2008 Pontiac G8
The G8 was the product of poor planning and no vision for the brand. What was perhaps the best sedan to come out of Pontiac in years only saw the light for a few years. The G8 was the right car at the wrong time, and GM knew it. We don’t know why GM waited until the end to release this wonderful sedan. The G8 was powered by a hefty 6.0 L V8. The stunningly beautiful design didn’t do the car justice. It was when you stepped behind the wheel that you were in for something special.
The G8 was offered in a few notable colors, but of course Pontiac red was the most popular. If you wanted to experience the last real V8 powered rear-wheel drive domestic sedan, this was it. The build quality of the G8 and the overall design was top-notch at a time when GM was teetering on collapse. Perhaps if the G8 had hit the market in the years prior we would still have a Pontiac brand to this day.
