GM to Cancel all Future Performance Model's!?! And Pontiac?!
The boys over at Jalopnik report that GM is planning on canceling all future performance models as part of their viability plan. I for one don't think this is the right idea, performance models get people in the door, they get people to buy the cars they are based on.
It also seems GM will be killing its 'Performance Division' Pontiac. Although, the name plate will carry on, it won't be its own brand, and it will definitely not be a full line brand.
It seems like these are two dark horses of the carpocalypse, thanks Congress for being lame-o's and not liking fun cars.
