Years Active: 1926-2010

Complex Says: Although Pontiac is one of the recently deceased, having only passed away in 2010, we still yearn for the company's good old days. Pontiac was the sporty counterpart to GM's pedestrian vehicles sold as Chevys. But in the last few decades, Pontiac became nothing more than bland, badge-engineered disasters. Sadly, at the moment of death things were just starting to look up for Pontiac, despite the horrible Toyota-sourced Vibe. The G8 sedan and especially the GXP variant were some of the best cars to ever come out of GM.
