"It seems the GTO will live on at least until '07 or '08 as GM has decided to cancel the Zeta platform on which it is to be based."

-GM High-Tech magazine Jul/Aug '05

"GM's plans for a rear-drive Buick Velite sedan, convertible, or anything else are officially dead. The murder also affects any rear-drive Chevy coupe, Camaro, Chevelle, or otherwise. While development of a new zeta platform was scaled back months ago, the decision to pull the plug on these new cars is much more recent. The only sub-Cadillac/Corvette rear-drive program going forth (besides Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky) is the next gen GTO, expected to last until 2008."

"Right now we're letting Ford have the pony car market."

".....but the business decisions have to come at a time we can afford to do it as a company."
