It may be wrong, but I was told that GT means "gran turismo" in
Italian that means "great touring" in English, somehow.
Guess this would explain all the sunfire GT's out there ;P
Pretty sure you wouldn't put a sunfire between a muscle car and a GT
I question a sunfire being sporty or durable ;P
GT does mean gran turismo.
In the business, a muscle car was at term used to designate a small car with
a large engine and a sport tuned suspension. Pony Car was another, for cars
that were made to compete with the Mustang after 1964.
A GT designation, which translates to "gran turismo," on the other hand
came from Italian sports cars and was applied by others to any car that has
the letters GT on a car, that was not really a muscle car, like the Toyota
GT for example ;)
