So the new GTO is struggling to meet it's core market. GM is hoping to reach interest with the middle aged who have kept a flame for the GTO going since it went away in 74', and the new Generation of drivers who are currently shopping at honda and Mitsu shops.

Their solution, a work in progress put together by Pontiac and USA Networks. It will be a two hour long TV movie. In the end, it turns out to be little more than a 2 hour infomerchial. The title will be "The Last Ride".

Of the few reasons that Motor Trend gave that this might be worth seeing, Nadine Velazquez (Who can also be seen in Biker Boyz) as the hottest Mechanic you have ever seen, and some of the best stunt-driving done in the current and past GTO's.

Of course there is massive GM product placement! Why else would a Police Detective drive a maroon Grand Prix?

The car that stars in the film, a Custom GTO. Unlike the current GTO, this one has a more curvey rear bumper with the much requested symetrical dual exhuast. And even dual hood scoops. A design which much resembles the 2005 GTO.

Believe it or not, the new 2005 GTO has the curvy bumper and twin pipes... saw it in the new wheels mag that arrived on my doorstep today... should be shipped to the US as LHD, just as the current Monaro GTO's are...
