Pontiac's release of the new G6 Coupe is less than exciting. We've been hearing about this car for months, and have also heard countless comments about the parallels between it and the Toyota Solara in appearance. Pontiac delivered a spiced up G6 coupe to SEMA and you won't relate it to any Solara. This Pontiac has a 270 HP 3.9L V6 with tweaked cylinder heads sporting Z06 valve springs being fed by a functional ram air hood. The body features new front and rear fascias, rocker panels, and a rear deck wing. The new grill is super hot, why doesn't Pontiac bring that into production to relieve the plain-itis the current car suffers from. Behind the 19-inch Forgeline wheels are 13-inch brake rotors ready at both ends to rein in the V6's power. Overall it's not a bad attempt to put some excitement into the new G6 coupe. We suspect the ram air induction and buffed up engine may find their way into a GXP version of the G6 Coupe. We also dig the new grill, and we're going to beg GM to bring it into production. Thanks to Eric Bryant for snagging these pics, check out more after the jump.
