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.
