High Performance Pontiac recently had the golden opportunity to spend a few days in Shanghai, China, the largest city in that country.
Our job: Count the number of Buicks compared to other brands and see if GM's claim that Buick's popularity in China killed the Pontiac brand is accurate.
Sorry GM. Buick was not the most popular car we saw in Shanghai. Toyota was. Kia was second, Hyundai was third, Volkswagon was fourth.
Buick. We saw some, but it looked to us that new Volkswagons were moving off dealer showrooms at a 4 to 1 pace over new Buicks.
Was it worth killing the iconic Pontiac brand over, GM? We disagree with you.
How about now that the US government will no longer be a shareholder in your corporation, that you bring Pontiac back?
Are there really any viable and truthful reasons why it shouldn't be done now?
