View Full Version : 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! Shit GM should just hire me to do their thought processing for cars.... :judge: 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! :devil:

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.

So who's got contacts with GM? We need to get this thing up & running!!! :judge::judge:

That would be the PERFECT 2012 Chevelle

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!


Yeah when I saw the tits I got hard. Turned it around and she showed me her ass, I came.

Yea when I saw the rear end of it I thought of the Audi S4 or RS6.. haha

That car is amazing, but it would have to come out like that, the side exhaust, the kick ass 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?

Ok...
The Audi coupe design still came out first, which is what is similar between the two.
The fact that the Holden's platform came out first doesn't matter much when it doesn't look like the A5 from the side.
So, :P, still.

But yes, the B6 A4 received the C5 A6's rear styling.

Also, that Coupe 60 does look good, but so does the A5:

Way better.... :judge: Idn I mean basically every two door car has that type of look from a side. Looking at the roof lining & windows. I mean if anything the GTR has a similar side look from looking at the door point of view. I just think the Coupe 60 has better styling then Audi & Nissan from their similar views.

Here's a neat idea: The next time a killer concept comes from one of GM's divisions in Australia or Europe bring it to the states RIGHT THEN. Not 5 -10 years late when all of the tooling is going to be trashed for the next generation......

I always wondered why car companies didn't make a poll for across America that asks do you like or not? If it turns out that American people like it then they build it!

Probably not too expensive if you buy an Aussie made car in Australia but shipping it over and getting it street legalized here will cost at least $10k. I was talking to an Aussie soldier and he said a new Mustang GT is $150k there and a new Challenger is $70k. So if you plan on going to Australia anytime soon, take a few over with you. By the way that car is sick.

Holden has had quite a few good concepts over the past decade, like the Torana sedan and the Coupe 60 here.

Both of which ended up being huge missed opportunities by Holden and GM.

The Coupe 60 was completely feasible for production and would have made a good Pontiac coupe. Maybe the next gen Holden sedan and variants will find homes at Chevrolet here in the Americas.

jmurray87
12-13-2011, 12:01 AM
That Holden 60 would have been an awesome next gen GTO after 06 or as a G8 coupe but as stated many times in the past and in this thread all the cool Holden performance cars never come here...we get boring slow stuff. :(

The Honda was only legal because the same model was exported to the US.
Any model car that was not exported to the US can not legally be imported and registered unless the car is over 25 years old.
The only way to get around it is to import it as a show car, but you can't get plates for it, etc.

The other way around it is VIN swapping (which of course is illegal and acquiring the car in the first place would be quite difficult).
