Pontiac Auto Show Coverage

Pontiac was a brand of General Motors, which emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2009. As part of the bankruptcy process, GM made the decision in April 2009 to phase out Pontiac by the end of 2010. Started in 1926, Pontiac's demise ends an 89-year-long operation responsible for such automotive legends as the GTO and Aztek, two vehicles that made the brand famous for very different reasons.

    Green and gaudy: Pontiac Top Tuner Solstice
    1169683080

    Pontiac's foray into the tuner world has been partially stunted by the limited amount of available Solsti on the road.

    It's official! Pontiac to get RWD platform, likely in G8
