|Lutz sees the negative reaction to the 2004 GTO on UltimateGTO.com|
|Some UltimateGTO.com website viewers told GM
what they thought about the new GTO design unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show
on January 3rd, 2003. Sure, everyone has an opinion. Bob Lutz,
GM vice chairman of production development was the brainchild behind the
project to make an Austraian Monaro into a GTO and import it to the USA.
Lutz had a chance to see some of the many negative reactions to the car's
styling on this web site. He viewed this page
which shows 36 comments made by website viewers. 33 of those comments
were critical of the car's styling in some way.
Bob Lutz of GM responded to the many negative
comments he saw which were posted about the first image...
Thanks to Bob for responding to the criticism
of his product. Viewer comments continue to pour in every day.
The car's exterior styling continues to get a solid thumbs-down, while
the car's interior is getting an enthusiastic thumbs up. Opinions
on the rear wheel drive platform and V8 engine range from "Cool!" to "It's
genius". While the new GTO critics question what they called the
"sucked caramel" styling and lack of hood scoops on the 2004 model, anticipation
is still high for the return of "The Great One". Look for it
to hit the USA shores in late 2003.

Says Michael Santana in the Navy - "I'm being deployed to IRAQ in July and should (Good Lord Willing) have the funds to get a 2005 GTO when I come home. Anyway, thanks to you, the Mrs., your staff, etc. for putting on the GREATEST HOMAGE TO THE FINEST CARS EVER BUILT BY AMERICAN HANDS!"
