Pontiac G6 GTP Coupe
For 2006, a coupe model with true 2+2 seating joined the G6 sedan to create an entire family of expressive, new Pontiac performers. The coupe was introduced alongside a G6 convertible at the 2005 Greater Los Angeles Auto Show. The coupe delivers 2+2 seating suitable for four adults. This was enabled by the G6’s class-leading 112.3-inch (2852 mm) wheelbase, which stretches the wheels to the vehicle corners and allows for increased rear-seat legroom. "The G6 coupe and convertible are uniquely Pontiac vehicles that are great additions to the family started by the G6 sedan," said Jim Bunnell, Pontiac-GMC general manager. "The G6 coupe delivers outstanding performance and generous interior room." The G6 coupe is available in GT and GTP models. The GTP will feature a 240 horsepwer 3.9L OHV V6 coupled to a 4-speed automatic with manual shift mode or a 6-speed manual – a package that targets driving enthusiasts. The coupe model shares the inherent attributes and strengths of the G6 sedan, including four-wheel independent suspension, a driver-oriented interior and a host of refined details.
