WHAT ABOUT HSV?
Holden’s performance-car division will continue to build the Clubsport sedan and wagon, Maloo ute, Grange limousine and GTS super-sedan until the October 2017 end of Commodore production.
Carsguide understands it may even stockpile enough cars to run into 2018 because once these homegrown heroes go, there will be no more.
In the meantime, HSV is looking to broaden its range. Don’t be surprised to see the high-performance Opel Astra OPC hot hatch and Opel Insignia OPC sedan and wagon in Holden showrooms wearing HSV badges.
HSV has sold Opel’s highperformance Astra before and the Astra hatch and Insignia were sold here last year as Opels before the brand was withdrawn from sale. That means they have Australian Design Rules approval and the parts are available. Only the HSV badges are missing.
