In an effort to go head-to-head with BMW, GM has decided to bring a version of the Holden Commodore stateside to be badged as a Pontiac. It will be unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show early next year. Bob Lutz was practically beaming as he made the thinly-veiled announcement encouraging people to go to Chicago, where "all will be revealed." The rear-drive Commodore should not only give Pontiac a real sports sedan offering, but the platform will undoubtedly see numerous permutations in the U.S. One of the candidates to use the platform is the production Chevrolet Camaro that has wowed crowds with its retro pony car styling.
