I was bored, so I decided to do some math on the 0-60 times. I know I'm facing the firing squad on this subject, but after doing the math from the nitorious 0-60 estimator equation, here's what I've come up with for the 0-60 times for both the sedan and coupe. Once again, these aren't first hand accounts and are estimates, which will depend on gearing, wheel slipage, airflow, etc.

4-cylinder sedan:
Curb Weight: 3100 lbs (est)
bhp: 167hp
Estimated 0-60 time: 9.4 sec

6-cylinder/GT sedan:

Curb Weight: 3240 lbs
bhp: 201hp
Estimated 0-60 time: 8.1 sec

GTP Sedan:
Curb Weight: 3275 lbs (est)
bhp: 240hp
Estimated 0-60 time: 6.9 sec

GT Coupe:
Curb Weight: 3415 lbs
bhp: 201hp
Estimated 0-60 time: 8.6

GTP Coupe:
Curb Weight: 3450 lbs (est)
bhp: 240hp
Estimated 0-60 time: 7.3


Footnotes: Added 35lbs for the 3.9L engine. Calculations based off the following formula: curb weight (lbs)/(bhp * 1.98)

I took the weights straight from the 2006 G6 brochure...

You can see the curb weights here. It is listed under dimensions and capacities.

Warning, the image is 3.08 Megs...

Wow, so I guess the G6 GTP is not as fast as my car. With performance mods the G6 GTP could be a monster. ;)
