Pontiac G6 "Super Bee" - Click above for photo gallery

While Pontiac gets ready to take a dirt nap next to Oldsmobile and the folks at Chrysler's Auburn Hills HQ brush up on their Italian, at least one American driver is showing us what might have been if the once-proposed Chrysler/GM merger (remember those days?) had come to be. Consider the perfect storm of hideous product decisions that could have ensued under such a tie-up.

What's that? Your mind's eye can't envision a scenario so horrifying? No worries. Autoblog reader Berto snagged some photos illustrating just how kooky things could have gotten. Imagine one automaker's muscle heritage fused with the base-level front-drive mediocrity of another. Imagine, friends, the Pontiac G6 V6 Super Bee. Thanks, Berto!

      Unless this is sitting atop a Zeta chassis, epic fail.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yup! That ranks up there with gold emblems, vinyl roofs, continental kits on newer cars and MGTD body kits on beetle chassis. This just shouldn't happen. What gets me is that somebody actually produced a decal kit for this abomination.

      EPIC...FAIL

      Wow. A G6 with a decal. This is big news. Say what you want about the G6, I had a GTP coupe before I bought my G8 and it was a great car. Solid engine, torque whenever you wanted it, and smooth ride.

      I hope to never come across this again.

      All I can say is, the Pontiac G6 is the best rental car I've ever driven. And I've driven many, many rental cars.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree. I always request a G6, but they're usually already gone, and I end up with something like a Camry or a Kia Sportage.

        What was it Seinfield used to say about rental car reservations?

      i'm not sure how i feel about some guy's personal idea of customizing his car should be held up to public ridicule on another persons web site, just not quit sure that it is fair.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Not to nitpick, but it's not the base level G6 if it has the V6.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh, my bad, I guess I confused the trim level with the options list.
        • 6 Years Ago
        If you want to get really technical, the 4 cylinder model (before 2009 anyway) was actually called the "1SV Value Leader" while G6 V6 was the base model. Even Pontiac would often use the term "base model" for both, though, so I guess I'm just nitpicking.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Actually it is the base model.

        Base model came with both 2.4L and 3.5L with an eco-geared 4 speed.
        GT came with the 3.5L, and optional 3.9L for 2007 only, with a 4 speed auto that was performance minded.
        GTP/GXP came with the 3.9L with a 4 speed auto or 6 speed stick, or 2007+ 3.6L with 6 speed automatic.

      Drove a GTp with the 3.9 and a 6 speed, while not a FAST sport car, it definitely was fun to drive, in fact i'd say its the best Grand Am i've ever driven ;)

      I also find it funny that there are two Dodges staring it in it's face.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Possibly 3...I see the Caravan, the Caliber, and what looks to be a white 1st-gen "cloud car" in the spot ahead and to the left of the Pontiac.
      • 6 Years Ago
      haha! it's funny! What about Dodge Viper SRT8 ACR Super Bee?
        • 6 Years Ago
        "Dodge Viper SRT8 ACR Super Bee"

        Chopping off 2 cylinders, huh? LMAO!!!, unintentional typo or not.

      It looks like a base trim G6 too. The wheels.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Not the base, it has a V6 emblem. Which means it's the base V6 model, but not the base 4-cylinder.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Thanks for the correction... I just realized that the G6 was offered with hubcaps. Must be the I4.
