Marc Silverman modified a 2004 GTO photo. He used PhotoShop to give it a wide-track appearance and modified the front grille to resemble the 65-67 GTO front end. CLICK->
Karl Batig from Korea sent us his concept of the 2004 GTO. Karl really liked the Ram Air hood from Eric White, so he borrowed it for his design. Karl added, "I have removed the intake screens (lifted, no doubt, from the Solstice) and lowered the openings a bit. I also split the lower opening. The headlights were too GM generic for me, so I tried to bring a 'quad headlamp' look to them. The whole package, to me, sort of emulates the look of the '72 GTO, with a lowered nose and quad lamps."

Brad Barrie drew up this 2006 GTO concept. This gives them two years to get it right. He is the newsletter editor of the Northwest GTO Legends (Northwestlegends.com) based out of Seattle, Washington. Brad commented on his artwork; "This is where I feel the GTO should be in terms of styling: There has to be hints of Retro; The car must have the power and mystique of the Great One; There needs to be a marketing edge that reflects itís heritage ala. Mr. Wangers; It needs to be Pontiac Purpose Built, not a borrowed model from someone elseís lineup (GM Holden- Australia); Lastly, the car needs to blow you away. Iím just hoping someone at Pontiac sees this and 'gets it.'"
Brad's original drawing was much larger that what you see here. He included the following "wish list" text at the bottom of his poster-sized car graphic:
The Legend that started it all in 1964, will soon arrive again to redefine itself as the quintessential musclecar. Born and raised right here on Planet U.S.A., the 2006 Pontiac GTO carries on the heritage it started over 40 years ago.

Here is a concept 2006 GTO in black. The following information is straight from Brad's vivid imagination!

Going to go after those pesky Vipers, and oh yea, sights are set on 2006 Car Of The Year! Here's the full ad"

David Trantow shares with us his concept of the 2004 Judge in Carousel Red. David added, "Okay, it isn't the real thing. But it is a great what if. I have been in love with The Judge since I first saw it when I was 14 (2 years ago). And I figured that I might as well bring it to the modern era." CLICK->
