06 G6 GTP 6-speed Sedan rare?

I'm a dealer in Mesa, AZ so I see cars all the time. I recently ran across a 2006 G6 GTP sedan with a 6-speed manual transmission. I bought it simply because I'd never seen anything like it before.

From what I've been able to gather on this forum, it looks like the 6 speed might have only been offered on 2006 due to low sales volume? I'm sure somebody on here can correct me if I'm wrong on that. This is the first manual G6 I've seen at all.

What makes me think this might be rare is the fact that it is not only a 6 speed, it is also a GTP, and a sedan on top of that. I have an old 98 M3 5 speed sedan and it is a rare car just because there weren't many E36 M3 sedans sold, and even less with a manual. I'm wondering if the same is true for this G6 GTP sedan.

Either way, it's a cool car 🙂 It has a nice, GTP branded leather interior and all! I've been trying to find out how many of this version of the GTP were made, but so far my google searches haven't led me to the answer.

Thanks for any help anybody can offer!

I have a 2007 G6 GT with the optional Sport Package. It includes a 3.9 liter V6, 6 speed manual transmission, antiskid, dual chrome exhaust tips, and 225/50R18 tires. This was the only year this was available and not very common.

That sounds like a sweet car! I don't think mine has the dual exhaust, but I'll have to double check. Mine does have all of the other options you mentioned on yours though. It sounds like the 2006 GTP became the 2007 GT, and with the Sport Package it had the same options that my 2006 had... Is yours a coupe or a sedan? I love the look of the G6 coupes.

So obviously the 6 speed manual was offered in 2007 as well, in your GT Sport Package. I wonder if the 2006 and 2007 models were the only ones that came with the 6 speed as an option then?

Tell me though - do you ever see anybody else driving around in another G6 like yours? I see tons of G6's on the road where I live. I see plenty of GT's and GTP's as well. I had never seen one with the 6 speed before though.

Wow, that site is cool!!!

So I paid the $5 to get a report. Here are the highlights:
- 9,958 G6 GTP Notchbacks (sedans) made in 2006
- 510 had the manual transmission

Here is a link the site provides for sharing the report. The one thing I don't like about the link is that it doesn't provide the production numbers. I will try to copy/paste the entire original report so you can see the production numbers.
- Build Sheet


Here is my attempt to paste in the entire report:

Lewm, do you know how many of yours were made in 2007? If not, I can run the report for yours like I did for mine (I had to pay for 5 reports at once) and that would tell us how many manual transmission G6 GT's were made in 07 (well, the number of either sedan or coupes made with the manual in that year, depending on which one you have.

Wow! So yours is a sedan as well, and in 07 there were even less made with the manual transmission than in 06!

According to the report there were only 358 of the GT's made with the 6 speed manual and only 358 with the 3.9 liter LZ9 engine. Talk about a rare car!

Between the two years then, it looks like GM only produced 868 (510 in 2006 and 358 in 2007) G6 sedans with the 3.9 liter engine and the 6 speed manual transmission. If you have one of these cars, you have one of less than 900 made!

Here's the entire report on your car Lewm:

I'll be posting my 2006 G6 GTP six speed sedan for sale at a local auction in Phoenix, AZ in about a week. I'll post the site when it's up. I'm curious how much of an audience is really out there for one of these cars.

Well, it sold for $3050 at the auction. I thought it would bring a lot more than that. Somebody got a screaming deal on a really clean, cool, rare Pontiac. I bet I'll never have a chance to buy one of those again.

The 2006 and 2007 had those 6 speed manuals but the 07 had higher 3rd thru 6th gears. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_F40_transmission
