The sales have been disappointing because it may have been ahead of its time, and a niche product may have been marketed as an alternative to the touring/wagon, which it isn't in many markets.

But is this the end? Scott26 has no comments to make on the 5GT, 3GT, and in particular how this platform will evolve.
I don't think the gt was as far ahead of its time as it was butt ugly. Every time I see one of those drive by (relatively rare) it just leaves me scratching my head thinking, did someone really buy that car?
I am however a fan of the wagons and I have pondered a 7er wagon before, I think it might work really.
