Torana Tip-Off

Union document shows GM plans to build a compact rear-drive car from 2011

By TERRY MARTIN 2 October 2007, www.goauto.com.au

THE chances of Holden resurrecting the Torana nameplate in Australia with a new rear-wheel drive compact car increased dramatically last week when United Auto Workers (UAW) officials in the US disclosed future model plans for General Motors.

The revelations, which include other Holden-engineered cars, emerged in a tentative contract agreement the union had won after earlier in the week staging a crippling two-day strike at GM facilities across the nation over issues including job security, wages and entitlements and investment in US facilities and vehicles.

The contract highlights included a pledge from GM to invest in future vehicles for 16 assembly plants in the US.

Among these vehicles is the global RWD compact, which GoAuto understands will come off the all-new Holden-developed platform architecture known as “Alpha”, and two new models based on the Holden-engineered “Zeta” platform, which underpins the VE Commodore, Pontiac G8 and the forthcoming Chevrolet Camaro.

Awwww-some! :spin::smilewide::yes:

GM should set an example by not producing any FWD cars period for Pontiac, Buick, & esp. Cadillac.

For Chevrolet FWD should be limited to the Cobalt & subcompact cars.

Heck built a Cobalt sized 2.0l Turbo limited edition RWD sedan and coupe that will give 1 series run for its money.

No, that would go to Pontiac. A Cobalt FWD/AWD, yes, RWD, No.

I never said it to be a Chevy. But should be priced around the Cobalt SS 2.4, sorry Cobalt S.

After reading it again, you didn't say Chevy. I just saw Cobalt and assumed you were talking about a Cobalt replacement.
