Pontiac G8 Production Cut by 97 Percent

With the state of the economy right now and viability plans due to Congress by February 17, General Motors has cut Pontiac G8 production by 97 percent in the upcoming months.

GM’s original production plan for the G8 was to build around 10,000 units between February 2009 and June 2009. That figure has now been reduced to around 1000 units. This is the second GM model that has undergone incredible production cuts (the first being the Saturn Astra) in recent days.

For those interested in purchasing a G8, things look better for the second half of the year when GM is only planning a 79 percent production cut on the G8. Earlier this year, the G8 ST pickup was killed. With news like this coming out of GM, it is likely that the G8 may be gone before long.
