The Pontiac site has updated G6 information to include the new GTP performance model. Some noteworthy changes are, of course the new 3.9-liter V6 with 240 horsepower and 241 lb-ft of torque mated to a 3.69 axle that will definitely boost the acceleration feel of the G6 (the GT has a 3.29). Also the electronic steering system has been replaced by a hydraulic system. They just can't seem to get the electronic system to give the rewarding feedback that a performance vehicle needs, so we're glad they corrected it. And you can get a six-speed manual on a GM sedan. Wonder of wonders! The base price is $25,735 and is pretty loaded. The other thing that Pontiac added with the price is the disclaimer "before incentives" which reminds people, good or bad, that they can get it cheaper. The GTP should be hitting showrooms this summer.
