General Motors Company CEO Fritz Henderson has been very vocal about his dislike for rebadging. He has repeatedly denied that the now dead Pontiac G8 would not be rebadged or imported as a Cadillac, Buick or Chevrolet. However, ‘unretired’ Bob Lutz is back and he’s telling the media that the G8 will live on.
In an interview with Automobile Magazine, Bob Lutz said that the G8 would find its way into Chevrolet showrooms under the Caprice name.
“The last time we looked at [the G8], we decided that we would continue to import it as a Chevrolet,” Lutz said. “It is kind of too good to waste.”
Lutz also confirmed that the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe is still in the pipeline along with a possibility of a CTS-V Wagon. He said that the government’s auto task force has shown special interest in the CTS-V Coupe.
