(THE DRIVE) – Pontiac was one of four General Motors-owned brands to hit the cutting-room floor amid GM’s late-2000s bankruptcy and bailout. By 2010, the brand would be discontinued alongside Hummer, Saab, and Saturn, but not before pumping out one last vehicle from the Orion Assembly plant: a white 2010 Pontiac G6 with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and spec’d for fleet use.
While this might seem like a lackluster end for the once-venerable red badge (it’s no GTO, after all), it’s still part of GM’s history. And as such, it led one interested Redditor down a rabbit hole to find out what exactly happened to the car once it left the factory. Had it ended up in a museum? A private collector’s personal inventory, or perhaps parked in the driveway of its original owner still?
Sadly, it was none of those. And while GM hasn’t officially confirmed that the VIN sleuthed out by Reddit belonged to the very last Pontiac, the year, color, and spec match old reports, boosting confidence that they may have tracked down the correct one. The story of the last Pontiac ever made ends just as anticlimactic as it began.
