Man what's up with all the G6 Performance sucks folks?

To stay on topic Congrats on the G6 there Stabbin_G6.

If I was looking for a pure performance car I would not go with the G6 at all or any front wheel drive car. I purchased my G6 based on room, price and fuel economy. I would pony up and get a GTO or if you need a 4-door sedan get the new Grand Prix GXP coming out with a V-8.

Just my 2 cents.

Nothing is wrong with Grand Ams they where what they where. I have driven several rental ones over the years from the powerful HO 4-cylinder versions of the late eighties and early nineties to the current six cylinder versions. They where a decent car for the money.

Not hating here but the Grand Am or G6 are not what I would consider a true performance car but a sport oriented family car. I used two own a rear wheel drive BMW M3 and Z-3 M Roadster so maybe I am jaded - see attached photos. But that was before I had a family and a budget to adhere to. Believe me a BMW of any caliber will drain your wallet on any performance mods (they don't need many if you own any Motorsport version) but they are a true driver's performance car. Nothing I have ever driven can compare to any of the ///M car grace, style and flat out handling.

Then again there are a few cars that GM build that are about overall performance (handling vs. HP) but straightline brute power with the exception of the Z-06 Corvette and the new V-series Caddies.

I don't know about you guys but I don't have 70 grand large to pony up for one of these kinds of rides. Thus I am driving on a budget with a base model G6 V-6.
