    New VF SS / Chevy SS

    I guess people wanted my to do something like this...
























    And here is something I may have done if left to my own devices. I prefer high end sport sedan trim, not boy racer blackout, though I do love black wheels...

    Sadly, this is the swan song for the Commodore too. The Commodore will be ending production in 2016. They will be switching to 4cyl cars instead. The New GM is the same as the Old GM.

    Holden already said they're working on the next Commodore.

    All Holden have said is that they will be making a car alongside the Cruze which will ride on a Global GM platform and it will wear the Commodore name. The two most likely options are that:
    1. It'll be a true Commodore riding on Alpha and using the same drive trains as the CTS and ATS.
    2. It'll be a FWD POS riding on the Epsilon II platform most likely with a slew of 4 cyl engines, and simply using the Commodore name as a marketing tool.

    I think I know which one we'd all prefer.

    They may be working on it but there is no way of knowing what it will be

    Perhaps when the Engine plant stops building 6 cylinder engines we will know it's going to be a Yank FWD POS

    Awesome renders. You can't do a version in the new Fantale Orange can you? On the VEII I just don't dig the colour, maybe it'll look different on VF

    Do Aussies like understated cars (I don't mean this as an insult, just asking)? While I like the strong, masculine looks of this car, overall it has a blandness, especially the front clip. Cover up the badge and I couldn't tell you who makes this.

    As always, nice job MonarroSS!

    The top grille in the SS seems like an afterthought.

    Great chops as alway thanks!!!!

    Just noticed that you left the mirror paint the same color in each picture. Looks a little weird that way.
    "The car's brilliant and ... a great surprise, pleasant surprise for all Corvette lovers everywhere ... a huge shock to our competitors ... because I don't think anybody was expecting something that good. What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    First, another excellent effort, MonaroSS.

    If the 2016 year is the last that means the SS will only have a three year run as the NASCAR shell. Interesting.

    Re: New VF SS / Chevy SS

    Great job on the renders! As for the car, I've got to see it in person. The interior and tail look great, the front looks merely OK, but the side especially the glass shape looks decades old. The side windows were the one styling element that fell flat on the G8 for me and that hasn't changed a bit. It may not be enough to keep me from buying the Chevy as long as the price is right. If they gouge on it, I'm buying a Dodge Charger RT, maybe with AWD.
    Buy American. Buy Ford. So say we all!
