    Don't forget, they (their dealers) sold over 2200 Sedans and Utes at greater than $100k in 2017 and 2018 along with another 1000 units that straddled that $100k fence . . . today, if you want to buy a special Mustang - the Bullit - the market is $90k which is similar to the Camaro - and if the dealers could be honourable the Camaro would be a tad cheaper but they are charging $5k delivery fees - the market needs to rebel that activity and HSV need to put their foot down and stamp that out

    In the next few months there will be another release from HSV into our market - I think we will hear about it as early as May but dealers won't have stock until July/August in my opinion

    Further to that, expect an number of High Performance initiatives out of HSV .... they are moving at a hot pace right now to get things finished and finalised

    As for US built RHD - don't bank on it anytime soon

    I can even imagine GM contracting HSV to engineer RHD units for other regions
    Nice to hear some positive stuff GR, amongst all the doom & gloom.

    I believe this release would have been all but locked in before the new HSV building deposit was paid.
    You would be crazy not to have a ten year plus plan in place modifying cars every month of every year
    HSV will continue to move forward and in time any aussie built HSV will be sort after. IMO.

    Sift thru all the more recent rumours and speculation and you should be able to narrow it down to a couple of models. A lot of stuff that is "leaked" is simply strategic marketing. Happens year after year, look at the GTSR thread on here, "spy shots" certainly got a lot of people talking about it!

    I will say though that dying forums like this certainly have their advantage to buyers. A lot of guys on here secured a W1 (even better at a decent price) because of it being mentioned on here. When it was finally released, the allocations were nearly all gone for the average punter.

    The next model may be a similar story, time will tell.

    Funny you say that I had a bloke ask me today if I would be interested in a W1 I asked why are you selling it and bam he said CORVETTE I asked price he said 200k all options plus a a few one off things done on the car.
    I called another guy that bought three W1's and surprise surprise he is selling two of them to buy a corvette I asked price he said 210 for the car with all options and 195 for the bare bones car.

    A Corvette would certainly interest me. It wouldn't replace my VF Senator (way too depreciated and practical, I still think this is my last good car most likely). Caveats I would still like an Australian Corvette to be state of the art in technology, but V8. RHD drive pricing would have to be realistic. Styling should evolve but not disconnect from earlier versions. Ford bringing the Mustang at fair price points says a lot.

    I can't keep up with all this stuff, which IMHO seems to be part of a Worldwide "rationaization" or whatever ya wanna call it by GM Detroit,...I've heard withdrawal from RHD vehicles, who knows, but whatever, it's out of Holden's hands, they're just a "p***enger" in all of this.

    Euthanasia for brands. Holden may be better euthanised with the good memories. Then be like MG, revived with lost character. Jaguar on the other hand seems to have thrived under Indian, over Ford Ownership.
