With little fanfare, the last Pontiac GTO was assembled at Holden's Monaro factory in Australia. Earlier this year, GM's Australian subsidiary built and auctioned its last Monaro coupe, but production of the continued in Pontiac guise until now. In February, GM announced it would end production of the GTO this year. Just weeks later, GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said the Pontiac GTO could return in 2008, alongside the new Chevrolet Camaro. Unlike the now-discontinued GTO, the new model is expected to feature aggressive retro-inspired styling. [photo credit].
