We could be looking at the first image of the final Holden Commodore built in Australia. Overnight, for those of us in North America, this photo was posted to social media with a caption reading, “It’s happening right now in the body shop…”
Holden’s final day of Australian production is slated for October 20, 2017, but it’s unclear how Holden will spec the final Commodore built in Australia. We’d imagine a top-of-line spec is in order.
While it’s likely this photo is legitimate, Holden did not verify its authenticity, and told Wheels, “Nothing we can confirm and no additional details we can provide at this stage, unfortunately.” Per prior reports, Holden was to continue building Commodore up until the Elizabeth plant’s final production day later this month.
Holden will cease manufacturing after 69 years of continuous operation in the country. Following manufacturing shutdown, Holden will become a full importer of vehicles from GM’s North American, Asian and ex-European operations.
