The official plan is to cease local production by the end of 2017. The real/unofficial plan is to cease production by mid-2017 anyway.
Stopping production in, say, July 2017 would mean that last dealer orders would be build in March 2017 (so I guess March would the last month of Chevy SS production, or even earlier), and then Holden would build a special/limited edition Equipe/International/Olympic/Adios Muchachos/Toodle-oo/Au revoir VFs from April to July (no customer options).
Should Holden go ahead with the other plan and shut shop by the end of 2015, that would be maximum of 13 month's worth of export production (Holden don't build cars during 3 week Xmas shutdown anyway). The plant can easily hold 4800 cars in stock, plus external facilities, most likely in the US.
Nothing new for GM anyway.

My cars my mum has preferred to get in and out of was the Caprice V because of the massive room the chrysler 300c and the VF, she wasn't crash hot on cars the size of a Barina as well but didn't mind the Cruze for some reason and Trax was easy for her to get in and out of but she didn't like the interior room in that either.
When dad was alive the Captiva was king because we had enough room for the whole family plus his portable oxygen tank.

Commodore had a pretty good month, but Holden are stretching the good news a bit (best Y on Y increase of any vehicle). That's because last year the VEII was marking time.
Collingwood Commodore revealed
April 14, 2014
Holden's sponsorship of the Collingwood Football Club has borne fruit in the form of a special-edition VF Commodore produced as a tribute to the most popular football club in the country.
Holden spokeswoman Kate Lonsdale says the cars will target one-eyed Pies fans with a monochromatic colour scheme.
The package will be available on Heron white examples of the SV6, SS and SS V models. It includes black stripes on the bonnet, boot and sides, black 20-inch alloy wheels, black grilles, vents and mirrors, black boot lip spoiler and a Collingwood badge on the boot. more
You know you want one.... Carna Pies!!
As long as the Collingwood badge is a delete option.
Can't wait for the Brisbane Lions Fiat 500...
Or the Melbourne Demons Opel Astra ... oh wait...maybe not.
