For years, GM Authority has had the pleasure of following, reporting on and bringing you the latest from Holden as a manufacturer. Tomorrow, that will change as Holden’s Elizabeth production facility closes down forever and the brand becomes a full importer of vehicles.
Images of the final Australian-built Holden Commodore made their way onto social media ahead of tomorrow’s planned shutdown. As the photo shows, the VF Commodore Series II is red and fitted with the 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine. It’s unclear what Holden’s plans are for the final Australian-built Commodore, however.
Holden will not hold any sanctioned public events tomorrow, though the brand held the Holden Dream Cruise earlier this week to celebrate 69 years of Holden manufacturing. The event drew over 1,000 Holden cars. It will hold a ceremony at the factory where the plant’s 950 workers will watch the final car officially leave the assembly line and Holden’s chairman and managing director, Mark Bernhard, will address workers before a final farewell is held at the facility.
GM Authority will continue to bring you the latest Holden news in the future, but it’s been a privilege reporting on news from around the world on cars made in Australia, built for Australia.
