GM's Lutz: Holden Commodore could appear in US as “four-door Corvette” | Rpmgo.com



For US fans of powerful sedans, it seems that General Motors might be preparing a surprise, as one of its executives, Bob Lutz, talked with Drive.com.au, and revealed that a sedan based on the Holden Commodore might makes its way over the Pacific to the US as a “four-door Corvette”.

“If we can pull that off and we have the next generation Commodore in as a police vehicle then we want to take a look at reintroducing a civil version as a high-end Chevrolet. Because when you get down to it the thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn’t have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission. So there’s a possibility of a premium Chevrolet sedan that would be sold in limited numbers. Think of it as a kind of four-door Corvette.”

GM is already preparing to offer a Chevrolet Caprice police vehicle in the US, which is based on the Commodore, so it doesn’t seem that unlikely for the manufacturing plants to crank out a few civilian cars, possibly branded as a Chevrolet SS.

For the moment this is all wishful thinking based on Lutz’s words, so take it with a grain of salt.
