Default Holden Coupe 60 In America?

CALLING GM PLEASE make a car like the Holden Coupe 60!! The concept Coupe 60 came with a LS2 but was scrapped by GM.... The G8 pretty much like this but imo I think the Coupe 60 looks a lot better.

I honestly think if GM came out with something that looked identical to this & named it the Chevrolet C60? it would be a huge hit. Plus it could compete with the higher quality brands. I mean Chevrolet doesn't really have any cars competing with Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Infiniti, etc quality wise. GM relies on Cadillac & Buick for that.. I think its time for Chevrolet to step up to the plate. Give the base model a turbo or s/c V6 & offer a performance track/street version with a LSA. Boom selling thousands! Cadillac would have the CTS-V & Chevrolet would have the C60! **** GM should just hire me to do their thought processing for cars.... I never understood why GM didn't make more models under Chevrolet, Cadillac, & Buick. Look at Mercedes Benz lol you got the S350, S400, S550, S600, S63, S65, E350, E550, E63, C250, C300, CL550, CL600, CL63, CL65, CLS63, CLS550, SLK350, SL550, SL63, & SLS..


This thing just looks nasty!

That should be the next Impala as the current model is way, way outdated.

That would be a dream come true. It looks better then the Camaro or Cadillac coupe and I bet it would fetch a premium price. The car looks amazing inside and out, yeah too good for GM to bring here.

Welcome to 2008......

I am sure such a car would compete with the Camaro's sales, but I did lke the look. I still think Buick needs a rear drive sporty car as a successor to the Grand National. It would at least put the on the radar to the non-blue hairs. I couldn't even tell you where the nearest Buick dealership is.

Great looking car but gm will price it wrong just like the g8, 27k for the v6 g8 when u could get a charger, 300, magnum or challenger for low to mid 20s imo gm should focus on cars that can compete with chryslers lx cars and make sure they have looks to back them up unlike the current impala.

I will def buy one if this was true. The design itself kills the Camaro and whatever there is on the car market!

Yea that would be interesting... Id say have the seats be different for the V6 version so it would appeal to people who aren't so much into performance. Then have the LSA version have those performance seats!

The side of this car also looks a bit like an A5:

I'll take mine with a panoramic retractable hard top, ala SL.
And change the tail lights.

That car is amazing, but it would have to come out like that, the side exhaust, the kick *** seats/harnesses, the digital gauges, everything. How can they have such cool concepts, and I notice always on the Holden side, then we get such bland looking vehicles?

I like it a lot, and honestly, it reminds me of the Nissan GTR, which I like as well.
