The 庞蒂亚克 G8 concept car, the spiritual successor to one of 通用汽车’最著名的性能轿车，于2007年2月7日在芝加哥车展上亮相。
The all-new performance sedan from 庞蒂亚克, the 2008 G8, introduced an all-new rear-wheel-drive platform -- dubbed Zeta -- shared with the 霍尔顿 Commodore from GM’的澳大利亚子公司。
Ronald Reagan was president the last time 庞蒂亚克 sold a rwd Grand Prix.
庞蒂亚克 initially sold two G8s: a base model powered by a 3.6-liter V-6, rated at 261 hp and 250 pounds-feet of torque, with a five-speed automatic; and a GT packed with a 6.0-liter V-8, rated at 362 hp and 391 pounds-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic.
两种变速箱均具有手动变速模式。发射后，V-8配备了六速手动变速器。 V-8还配备了气缸停用技术。 GT提供了标准的限滑差速器，以改善牵引力。
庞蒂亚克’s Chicago show car, while representative of the production GT, also featured some tuner touches: 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch wheels were standard, and 19-inch wheels were available), lowered ride height, high-performance brakes with painted calipers, custom interior trim with leather-wrapped dash, a Phantom Grey paint job and a conceptualized version of the 庞蒂亚克 badge.
