is this one of those Dealer made Special Model?? Like the integra with oem kit, altezza light and niche wheels some Vancouver dealer ship is selling and calling them the Performance model?

Nope. I'm pretty sure it came straight from GM at the top. Some guys were telling me they saw Quebec commercials of the same thing...

Downtown one time, I saw a Z-23 or a Z-25 'special edition' or 'limited edition' or something like that. :dunno:

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the letter T is going to be next?

I think I'll get a head start and make up some Z24-T stickers... :D

GM has been special badging cars for years, to the point where they have to produce factory rice to get any attention now :rofl:

didn't pontiac come out with a vibe GT-R or something like that? same as the toyota matrix.

Same driveline as the matrix but totally difference interior and body. Not the first time GM has sold toyotas under its own badge. Toyota has also sold GMs outside of north america as toyotas (toyota cavalier anyone?).

Have you ever met anybody from GM's marketign department? Pay GM canada a visit if you're ever out east, it's a wonder some of them even know what a car is!
