  • 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!

Car and Driver: Updated Volkswagen Golf to Debut This Fall, R400 Maybe Never

2016 Volkswagen e-Golf


The Volkswagen Golf, one of our favorite compacts, is still selling in good numbers—and therefore the company feels no particular rush to come out with its mid-cycle revision. Sources tell us that we’ll see the updated version this fall, at the Paris auto show, and the car will hit European dealerships by the end of 2016.



U.S. buyers, though, will have to wait longer. Here, the facelifted version will be launched in mid-2017 for the 2018 model year. We think there is no compelling reason to await the new model, however. The changes will be largely cosmetic, and the only major improvement will pertain to the all-electric e-Golf, which gets an improved battery pack with more range (currently it’s rated at 83 miles between charges). And we certainly hope that by that time, the EPA will have gotten around to certifying the TDI version as well.

Unfortunately, it seems that there is little reason to wait for a series-production model of the Golf R400. Green-lighted by motorsport aficionado and former VW R&D chief Heinz-Jakob Neusser, it was to be fitted with a variant of the EA888 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo with at least 400 horsepower. But since Neusser was dismissed in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal, the car has lost its chief proponent and we might never see it on the road.
