Well could they of really followed through after watching Ford close up shop? I can only imagine the king freakout if Oz lost two major manufacturers and job sources in one year...After threatening to withdraw support to the car industry pre election, the new government has done a complete backflip. Normally this would attract much bleating from the opposition, but not on this occasion. No doubt because they support the car industry too, but unusual for them to forego such a juicy political opportunity.
Holden must be breathing a big sigh of relief, like the rest of us.
Precisely. South Australia would become an economic basket case. The ramifications would be severe. Including engineering career paths we can ill afford to lose.Well could they of really followed through after watching Ford close up shop?

I think I would TBH. How often do you get to see a 400+ HP station wagon I'll blow the doors off every punk rice rocket and Mercedes I see crawling the neighborhood....The wagon is a 2k premium here so if Chevrolet chose to release it you already know how much it would be.
Would anyone pay 2k extra for the SS wagon with all the current content,
Well thats new.Government has slammed into reverse its tough stance on the car manufacturing industry.
Rather than cut funding - as it promised to do when in Opposition - it is preparing to offer Holden an early Christmas present: an undisclosed amount of money it has not even asked for.
I'd buy the Ute at the same as the SS sedan price. I want the vehicle that bad. Lacking the Ute I may be tempted by the sport wagon, but not a dime over $2K more than the sedan.I know there are quite a few people who would buy the Ute, potentially at the sedan price because it is a good vehicle to use for small business like tyre shops, mechanic workshops etc, it can be wrapped in sign writing very effectively advertising your business.
It is the best of both worlds as it is a two seater that can tow the jet ski or boat on the weekend. I don't think it would eat Corvette sales or full size trucks as it can be marketed as a fun lifestyle vehicle targeted at couples or singles with no kids or cares.
I think the Sportwagon could be a no brainer as well. IMHO
