    CTS-V discontinued

    Not sure if there was a thread, had a look and couldn't see one.

    The CTS-V out savior is to be discontinued! Did anyone pick up on this?

    best replacement is the CT6-V AWD that I can see after a quick glance.

    Agree very big loss. Are LS engines only going to be in Camaro, trucks, SUV. No market for it would love LS factory forced induction in a GM Torana sized sedan. On GM USA it amazes me Monaro and Coupe4 were assessed as styling failures in USA, and the low glass area Camaro a success.

    Huge in terms of numbers, but still small in terms of percentage.
    Was speaking to the 1320 guys at Summernats and they weren't at all too familiar with the GTO or G8.

    These cars would have sold heaps more in the States if there had been more promotion by GM.

    the GM USA marketing guys loved it.. and wanted to do more
    the GM USA management hated it ... the UAW was kicking their arses
    and
    so, in limited numbers, we exported what some call (rightly so imo) the world's
    best LARGE sports sedan at that time
