Some interesting news broke out of Detroit as we covered the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Word around Cobo Hall was a new V8 powered rear-wheel drive vehicle is heading to Australia to replace the Holden Commodore after 2017.
The word comes from Stefan Jacoby, General Motors’ head of International Division. Jacoby was quoted saying, “We will bring a true sports car to Australia for the brand Holden… It will be something which fulfills the requirement of a true Holden sports car.” He then divulged into a few other details saying it will be V8 powered, and it will arrive in 2018.
This means the 2015 Ford Mustang will indeed have something to worry about from General Motors, as it gears up to begin selling the Mustang in right-hand drive guise. It could be that Chevrolet has pulled a fast one and dusted off the right-hand drive Camaro program, ultimately resurrecting the Monaro nameplate. Option number two would be the mighty C7 Corvette Stingray will find its way down under.
So we ask, should Holden’s new V8 powered halo car be the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, or C7 Corvette? Cast your vote in the poll below, and feel free to sound off in the comments section to let us know.
