Pontiac G6 GXP (above) and Vibe GT-R (below right) SEMA show cars – Click either image to view in high resolution

Pontiac fans are undoubtedly going to miss the role-out of new concept cars from the not-long-for-this-world GM division. But for a lucky two, that thrill can be experienced every day on their own driveway as two past Pontiac show cars have popped up on eBay Motors for sale.

First up is the Pontiac Vibe GT-R that debuted at the 2002 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Boasting a unique Opera Red Metallic paint job, ram-air induction hood scoop, special body-kit, PIAA driving lights, 19-inch rims, custom suspension, Kenwood hi-fi, a full Momo interior... oh, and a 190hp 1.8-liter DOHC four, the Vibe GT-R was created as a rolling showcase of aftermarket possibilities for the Toyota-based tall hatch -- without focusing on the pesky performance end of things.

Joining the unique Vibe is the Pontiac G6 GXP show car which debuted at the same show two years later. GM's Performance Division built the show car for SEMA to test public reaction for a performance-oriented G6. Reaction was good, and the car went into production, but the show car maintained a more stunning visual appearance. The show-quality orange hue is offset by the dark grey splitter up front and diffuser around back, and the engine and suspension were tweaked to show the Pontiac's performance potential.

With GM forced to sell off its collection of past concept cars and Pontiac going the way of the Oldsmobile, both these low-mileage cars present unique opportunities for enthusiasts and collectors to get their hands on a piece of soon-to-be-history. Follow the links to view the auctions, which both end at 6pm Pacific time on May 3, or click on the thumbnails below to see the images in our high-res mega galleries. Props to Berto for the tip!

      The Vibe would look a lot better without those spoilers. The front fascia is actually pretty nice looking.

      HOLY Crap! That is right by my work! I may have to go take some vids for my collection!! Sweet!!

      Both are have -EX VIN numbers. Both are not registrable for road use. Paperweights, IMHO.

        I believe both of these cars were sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in West Palm Beach last month. I snapped a few pics of that G6 when I was there.

      G6 GXP = HOT.
      Vibe GT-R = NOT.

      I'll wait for them to auction off one of the Koni Challenge G6's... built on a RWD platform... they dominated for a while... still competitive.. I'm sure now that Pontiac is gone we'll see some up for sale...

      It'd be nice if you could buy that orange GTO they setup for SEMA (I think it was SEMA).
        • 5 Years Ago
        You could have had it at Barret J this past year! it went for $80k and that was a steal! i know atleast $600k went into that car between parts and man hours at GM and ASC. That was an insane deal, I almost l lost my mind seeing that and why i missed the chance to grab it myself, i just didn't expect it to go so low.

        Man, I didn't know it sold. That's a pretty good price for that car.

      While the Vibe GT-R looks like a ricer, this G6 GXP looks cleanly executed. I must say, it is quite good looking. I like the mini grand prix look. To bad the production car turned out to be such a toad.

      Why couldn't they use that front end on the production GXP?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I like both, that front bumper on the g6 is great! although those rims i dont know
      • 5 Years Ago
      That g6 reminds me of the Holden Commodore HSV
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's what I thought too.


        This G6 concept is definitely what the G6 GXP SHOULD of been. Oh well.

        R.I.P. Pontiac

      WHY WHY WHY didnt GM put the excellent 2.0L Ecotech in both the G6 and the Vibe. That is by far the best engine GM has to offer. But if you want it in a practical car you have to pick between the HHR and Colbalt. DAMN YOU GM!! Gimme a vibe 2.0L with the 300hp chip. Economy, practicality, performance, price, and pretty good looks. What is not to like (except the interior, fix that too)
