Here's a close-up of the 6-speed close ratio manual shifter in the 2004 concept GTO. If you'd rather mess with the radio, then you can pick the electronically controlled Hyrda-Matic 4L60-E four-speed automatic. CLICK->
There is a good looking 5.7 Litre engine under the hood. Gotta like those valve covers! Pontiac is stating, "It's an all-aluminum 5.7L Gen III LS1 V8 with 350 horsepower @ 5200 rpm and 365 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm." CLICK->
The emblem on the side is very similar to the 1968 and back GTO emblems. Except this one has 5.7 instead of 6.5 Litres. CLICK->
It's got GTO branded power-assisted four-wheel ventilated disc brakes on all four corners. This shot is from the GTO Media packet CD that was distributed to the media during the unveiling of the GTO in Detroit in early 2003. CLICK->
Here's a bonus picture (along with the next one) of the 2004 concept GTO. It's rarely seen, because it's not available in the "files" section of the GTO Media Packet CD. It was captured from the "flash" portion of the CD's presentation. CLICK->
Here's the second bonus picture of the Torrid Red 2004 concept GTO that was captured from the "flash" portion of the GTO Media Packet CD's presentation. CLICK->
Mike Radke from the West Cost sent in this newspaper ad which advertises the debut of the 2004 GTO at the LA Auto Show. They had a car representing each year of the GTO for this occasion. The plan was to have the older GTOs weave into the arena and then have the new GTO come through the middle. CLICK->
Mike Radke from the GTOAA also sent in this ad that pre-promoted
the 2004 GTO in December 2002. It was seen before the 2004 GTO was unveiled to the public on January 3rd, 2003. This advertisement was on page 22 of the LA Times. CLICK->
Here's another newspaper ad from Mike. This one kind of shows the GTO. It says, "The only things that will move faster than the new GTO are the free tickets to see it." CLICK->
Mike Radke took these pictures of the 2004 concept GTO at the LA Auto Show. Mike said that it's a nice looking car, but it looked like all of the rest of the cars at the show. CLICK->
This is a straight on view of the 2004 concept GTO at the LA Auto Show. Mike must have taken this before the event was open... Or, everyone was crowded around the other cars. CLICK->
The GTO is on a turntable. Mike captured the rear end with this shot. I like the gigantic "GTO 5.7 Litre" logo sign in the display. I wonder if I could have it for my office wall? CLICK->
Eric from Ontario Canada took these pictures of the Yellow Jacket 2004 concept GTO at the 2003 Auto Show in Detroit. You can see the two tail pipes coming out of the underside of the bumper on the driver's side. There's also a 5.7 emblem on the trunk. The 3rd brake light appears to be in the rear spoiler (black strip in the center). This might mean that you cannot order it without the rear spoiler. CLICK->
Unfortunately, due to quality issue the yellow seats and interior trim had to be dropped for the production models. Only the yellow gauges remain. The 2004 GTO comes with interior accents in red, blue and purple for specific exterior colors. The exterior paint offerings will be silver, deep blue, light blue, yellow, red, purple, and black.

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Gene Bragalone (gbragalone.@yahoo.com) - "You seem to need to addresss three diferent main reader types and you do it well. The "original" fans, the "Just get by" group, and my favorite, the folks who like to look almost original but like to have it perform well so will do things like scrap the junk ignition and ... install different distributors."
