New Rumors of the Pontiac G8 Returning to North America as a Chevrolet

The dying of the Pontiac emblem in 2009 additionally added approximately the death of the G8, the Americanized derivative of the Australian-built Holden Commodore SS. It become a unhappy day for Pontiac and Holden fans alike, the lack of the G8 export contract costing Holden thousands and thousands of bucks and putting the destiny of its Elizabeth, South Australia plant - and the emblem itself - in jeopardy.

When the Holden-derived Chevy Caprice Police Car changed into found out for the North American marketplace three hundred and sixty five days ago, rumors of a reborn G8 in the shape of a Chevrolet had been rife. Now, Aussie motoring website Drive is reporting that U.S. Exports of the Holden Commodore SS are "imminent", with a launch predicted before the quit of the cutting-edge model's lifespan.

At the LA Auto Show, Al Oppenheiser, a senior engineer at General Motors and the leader engineer at the Camaro challenge, instructed Drive that negotiations have been underway to sell the Commodore in North America as a Chevrolet:

"Although we've got made no legitimate assertion as but, we're virtually searching at doing some thing with Holden for the retail marketplace. What we're looking at is bridging a gap inside the performance sedan market that turned into vacated via the Pontiac G8. With no Pontiac, the apparent performance emblem is Chevrolet."

An unnamed source at GM has even gone to this point as to signify that the export deal has already been finalized and permitted. As the LHD development paintings is already accomplished, the most important hurdle facing Holden's relaunch of North American exports is the excessive Australian greenback.

Jonathan Rose, a spokesman for Holden, is less constructive: "At this factor in time our focus is on exporting the Caprice to North America as a law enforcement car ... Beyond that we don't have anything to add proper now."

The unnamed Chevrolet, if it does turn out to be a reality, will more often than not likely be based on the quick wheelbase Zeta platform, not the long wheelbase one like the Chevy Caprice Police Car.
