Pontiac to get Cobalt-based econobox

It's another example of the dreaded "platform sharing" concept, but don't fret, GM says it's temporary.

According to AutoWeek, the Chevy Cobalt will be revisited as a high-performance Pontiac model possibly called the G5. The model will be a temporary thing until a more Pontiac-like small car is developed. AutoWeek's source says we'll probably see the vehicle in 2007 out of the Lordstown, Ohio plant. Pricing will be close to that of the Chevy Cobalt SS, which starts at just over $20,000. There is already a Cobalt-based Pontiac currently sold in Canada under the name Pursuit (pictured).
