Let’s be clear that this is a rendering (obviously) and that GM has no intention of bringing back the GTO or Pontiac for that matter. We will get to why I think GM is dropping the ball on that one in a moment. For now, we are going to look at this Pontiac GTO Aztek Shaker rendering and roast the hell out of it.
Pontiac GTO Design
This New GTO rendering looks as if the Pontiac Aztek design team came back from the graves in which GM buried them in. In a zombified effort to show the world that they still have taste (for brains), they decided to take bits from various GM platforms and have a component orgy.

The Pontiac GTO air intake comes from a Hoover vacuum and although I love the 66′ grille, it makes this rendering look like a cheese grater for pedestrian penises. The headlights which should be the eyes of the beauty are just overstock Cadillac CTS headlights that are disproportional to this ride anyways. Front fascia appears to have come off a Saab just before GM helped sink that company too.

The paint color is a throwback from the Pontiac Tempest in which you were prematurely conceived in. The wheels thankfully are spinning in this photo so that you can’t see that they are a 4-spoke design with red-eyed goat’s head center caps.
Here are some other Pontiac Eyesores!
Pontiac GTO Conclusion
If you didn’t know that in the past, Firebirds, GTO’s, Trans Am’s shared most of their parts with Camaros then let me blow your mind (I doubt it) . Some guys are hardcore Firebird enthusiasts and don’t even want to cross streams over into that Camaro nonsense. This is why I think GM could be shooting out some special order GTO Judge Edition cars based on the Camaro ZL1. Because of the void of “flaming chickens” out there, a company called Trans Am Worldwide now is delivering in the niche that GM has ignored.
