Lutz has officially "seen the light," not to mention, "the error of his ways;" supposedly, these are his own words:
Personally, I still think this decision has more to do with the G8 being manufactured in a non-UAW facility than it being a "green" issue. In fact, it's interesting to note that Lutz goes out of his way to praise the RWD design team in Australia:
"And we have a tremendous RWD team in Australia that gave us the beloved G8, a team that we will tap into at some point again in the future for its expertise and sheet metal. Just not right now."
He can say that because the none of design teams have UAW members!!
And no one on the ATF is up-in-arms over the Camaro...it's assembled by CAW members at Oshawa. Also, several ATF members were supposedly very excited about the prospects of the CTS-V Coupe as their personal cars.
Anyway, the GM site does allow for responses from readers, so you may want to read his entry and tactfully respond. At least say that you want to see GM continue to put out great cars like the G8, regardless of where they're manufactured. And our say in the matter should count for a little more, given that we've put up our own, hard-earned dollars to buy a GM product, even if it is a dead-branded, re-badged Holden!
