  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

The current model, which made its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show, will get a successor some time after the launch of the next-generation 5-series sedan.

The current 5-series GT, arguably challenged in the looks department, was designed to be particularly roomy and versatile. The hatchback does not enjoy great success in the U.S. market, which prefers sedans, and in fact we’ve been told that BMW’s U.S. executives would have preferred to keep it out of the market here. But it does quite well in China: The People’s Republic is the vehicle’s most important market.

Here’s the good news: The next 5-series GT has been described to us as far sleeker-looking car than the current model. Nevertheless, it will keep its spacious and airy cabin. Next time around, maybe we’ll actually welcome it.
