They were hoping for about 400 hp, due in large to a 3.5 L v6 and an electric motor that would make use of the capacitor system

The Pontiac version was scrapped. It was based on the Holden Ute.

The first two cars were never slated for the US. GM thinks that people do not want the El Camino revived. American manufacturers do not listen to what people want and that is why they are failing.

Yeah, I would've loved to see the G8 ST....Instead GM gives us the Volt and Turbocharged 1.4 engine cars...
