It seems like Bob Lutz just can’t let the Holden Commodore based Pontiac G8 go. The GM vice chairman is now interested in offering a high-end Chevrolet based on the Holden Commodore as a “four-door Corvette” sports model. Lutz said that after work on developing a Holden based police car was completed, Chevrolet would consider a high-end Commodore-based model for the public.
Here are Lutz’s own words:
“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.”
Keep your fingers crossed but don’t keep your hopes up.
